We always dine at Ye Olde Tavern when in Montagu. The food is always good and excellent value. Two lovely young ladies on their first night waiting on did very well!

I grabbed an afternoon craft bottled beer at the bar and shared some conversation with the locals in the very pleasant garden. It was not peak time and I was not eating but the people were pleasant and welcoming.
