An intimately serene atmosphere pervades this townhouse which feels more like a country hotel than one set within the famous literary Bloomsbury area of central London. The beautiful gardens help to foster this impression, while indoors the stylish public rooms are staffed by a dedicated and discreet team.
Executive Chef, Martin Halls, has carefully designed a "not to be missed" Afternoon Tea Menu experience designed to reflect the seasons, using only the finest British ingredients.
Tea in the conservatory is delightful, with views on to the grounds beyond; or you can go one better in the summer, and sit on the terrace under a large sunshade.
Right in the heart of blossoming Bloomsbury this summer, tucked away in a quiet oasis in the midst of bustling London, chance upon the Secret Garden at the Montague on the Gardens.
From May until September, the Montague on the Gardens' Secret Garden is THE perfect place to wile away the balmy English summer evenings. The Secret Garden, designed in association with prestigious floral designer and fragrance creator Kenneth Turner, will be the perfect place to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea this summer, enjoy some Pimm's or an evening barbecue. There are very few London Hotels which can boast of having their own garden in which guests can relax and enjoy wonderful Afternoon Teas and at The Montague on the Gardens charming lanterns will lure you through to the hotel's Secret Garden decorated with birch, entwined and rambling Leanna vine and summer flowers such as roses and hanging wisteria, to create a colourful, inspiring and relaxing garden space.
