I treated four guests to dinner here recently, all ordering from their tasting menu. We had a lovely bottle of wine, and four terrific meals-- and felt wonderfully well-attended to by the terrific staff. As guests of the hotel, we also enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast there the next morning.

Excellent room, good food. Most of all Mohammed was an amazing host. He was available from 7am and nothing was too much for him to help with. He rearranged the room - organised breakfasts and coffees.., An amazing service from Mo! Thank you

Stayed at the montague hotel so used the blue door restaurant as it was part of the hotel, the staff were lovely, welcoming and professional the meal was delicious from the starters to the dessert, the waiter 'Everett' was very knowledgable about the food we were ordering and a credit to the blue door, I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Description
The Blue Door Bistro provides a welcoming and informal bistro-style setting, with a fantastic menu to match. Light and airy at lunchtime and warm, cosy and candlelit by evening, the room is decorated on three sides with an antique panoramic view of London circa 1849: together with the rich mahogany panelled walls, effective use of mirrored glass, and contemporary wrought iron wall lights, an ambience rooted in the hotel's location is beautifully achieved. Executive chef, Martin Halls, used the finest of seasonal British ingredients, seasoned with the freshest of herbs from Chef's kitchen garden. With a wide range of vegetarian dishes and salads, commended with an AA rosette for its cuisine, you can rely on good honest food and impeccable service. We only use free range eggs and are committed to using sustainable fisheries for our fish supplies.
