The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating with a warm fire going in the chilly winter. A wishing well provides great entertainment for the kids.Breakfast is served untill 4pm, lunch menu is displayed on chalk boards as it changes according to season, and what is growing on the farm. All cakes, croissants and muffins are hand made on site and are worth a try!

Upon arrival we were met by Sergio and the team.
The crew at Rambling Rose constantly engages with everyone which adds to the experience. We ended up having burgers and ginger beer (lovely). The Peri-Peri sauce made by Sergios wife was amazing (just had to purchase a bottle).
Thank you for the warm experience we had at your spot! See you guys on our next visit.

I have eaten at this restaurant before and the quality has remained the same - excellent. The owners are young & extremely friendly. The staff are well trained & also very friendly. The wide variety of food or their Saturday buffet, although a bit pricey is very tasty. After an enjoyable meal (they use a selection of home- made condiments which they bring to your table), you are able to shop for fresh breads, preserves etc. A truly good eating and dining experience.

Our scenic drive to the lovely town of Montagu (despite a couple of road works) was a great day out for my wife, our spaniel and I on Woman's Day. We were warmly welcomed at the Rambling Rose, and seated in the lovely garden courtyard. Our chicken salad and fillet were great. The cakes were awesome. And we bought some delicious fresh pastry, jam and bread for home. By the time we left, it was full. And for good reason. We will be back.
