About the restaurant

WELCOME TO THE MONTFORT AT STANBRIDGE EARLS

 

 

The Montfort at Stanbridge Earls is a stylish and contemporary restaurant, bar and terrace near Romsey. The venue is set amongst 38 acres of picturesque woodlands and nestled within the magnificent Grade II* Tudor Manor House of Standbridge Earls. This sympathetically restored manor is providing a stunning backdrop by its beautifully manicured gardens, open meadows and ornamental lakes.

Located near to the vibrant market town of Romsey, in the Test Valley area of Hampshire, the Montfort restaurant is just 11 miles from Southampton and 15 miles from one of England’s ancient capitals – Winchester.

 

STEEPED IN HISTORY

 

Formerly a private home, Stanbridge Earls Manor is rumoured to have once been occupied by Saxon Royalty with links to King Alfred the Great and Florence Nightingale. The site was held by a number of families until the 19th century when it fell into a ruinous state. It was rescued in the early twentieth century when it was restored and developed into a boarding school and lately into a luxury community.

 

 

MEDIEVAL SPLENDOUR

 

The Montfort restaurant is located near the medieval market town of Romsey. Surrounding the impressive Norman Abbey at the centre of the town, its charming streets are home to a wonderful array of quaint local shops and lively markets.

Just a stone’s throw away, the medieval King John’s House, Tudor Cottage and former Victorian gun shop form the new Heritage Centre, which off ers a fascinating insight into the history of the area, as well as a series of period gardens which lead to a picturesque mill stream.
