The Montague is a well-presented tenement pub with some old features still intact like the cornicing, some old mirrors and doors. It’s been brought up to date with neutral colours, modern furniture and new hardwood flooring. The small lounge area looks like somebody’s front room (pictured right).
When we arrived there was one guy sitting at the bar, and that was it. By the time we left, he’d gone and was replaced by 2 older gents. I suspect this was down to general Tuesday night quietness, but amplified by it being opening night round the corner at Clerk’s Bar. The barman was friendly and didn’t seem fazed by the quietness at all.
Big name kegs only: Youngers Best, McEwan’s 70 and 80, Guinness, Fosters, Amstel, John Smith, 1664, Strongbow.
While talking with the barman he said they’ve tried cask in the past but couldn’t shift it fast enough.
The round was £9.50 for 3 pints, so relatively cheap at something like £3.16 a pint.
Cocktails £3.50 to £5.
11 burgers from £5.25 to £7.25, though each of those can be upgraded from quarter pound (4oz) to half pound for an extra £2. There are also nachos with beef chilli (£5.50), “Nacho Mountain” which sounds awesome (£10.99), hotdogs, and various starters under a fiver.
