The landmark 5* Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa in Bath is relaunching its highly anticipated Montagu’s Mews restaurant and bar space with a new concept, in addition to launching a brand new heated dining terrace. Set to delight, this is a completely new dining experience for the hotel following a total restaurant refurbishment.
Montagu’s Mews will be a modern, classic destination for food lovers and the discerning traveller alike, providing locally sourced cuisine set in a relaxing, welcoming atmosphere. Celebrating the heritage and iconic status of the luxury hotel and showcasing its individual style, guests can expect an elevated experience, treating them with a passionate and highly personal service, whether it be a midweek lunch with friends or celebrating a special occasion.
Designed by Shelley Reiner, Director of London based interior design company, Suited, using a dramatically re-imagined approach, the effortlessly elegant restaurant and chic bar space of Montagu’s Mews incorporates a modern palette of colours and textures and informal, inviting seating. Attentively designed lighting has been integrated throughout and the entire interior reflects the eclectic nature of an 18th century salon, to create a thoroughly modern, classic and luxurious space. This has been inspired by the first resident of No.16 Royal Crescent, Elizabeth Montagu and her salons. Elizabeth Montagu was the host of the Blue Stockings Society, writer, salonière and advocate for women’s education. A fresh and forward-thinking attitude helped Elizabeth bring people together in the spirit of enlightenment; the perfect inspiration to inform the hotel’s approach to dining.
The restaurant will serve award-winning dishes from Head Chef Martin Blake and his team. The menu will have a strong focus on locally-sourced ingredients, with exquisite, modern dishes being served. Martin is passionate about incorporating quality produce from local farmers and suppliers into his menus, showing off the best that Bath and the surrounding areas has to offer. Dine on lamb from Whaddon Grove farm, Wye valley asparagus with almond pesto and chicken jus roti and 30-day aged Herefordshire beef tartar.
The 3AA Rosette award at Montagu’s Mews highlights the culinary excellence that guests will immerse in when dining here. Whether indulging in exceptional tasting menus, relaxed bar food, delicious breakfast or mouth watering afternoon tea, a high standard of dining will be experienced.
Guests can overlook the green and pleasant gardens whilst dining, as well as having the option to eat outside on the newly renovated, picturesque and peaceful outdoor terrace, under cantilevered parasols and seasonal heaters. The terrace has been newly created to allow guests to enjoy the idyllic grounds of the luxury hotel – the only place in the city centre that offers such a peaceful way to dine.
Montagu’s Mews bar offers guests a refined space that will serve a host of local botanicals as well as small batch spirits and high quality wines and beers. Enjoy your delectable drink of choice in the chic, cosy interiors of the bar or as you relax on the newly renovated terrace – the perfect spot for a summer sundowner.
