Montagu Arms Hotel – Beaulieu
Weddings at the Montagu Arms are simply lovely. If you are looking for michelin star fine dining, a relaxed homely feel, with unrivalled service and attention to detail then this is the venue for you. This is not the cheapest option for a wedding in the New Forest, but if you want value for money, then the Montagu Arms is one of the best venues that we have worked at, especially if you go for exclusive use option! Situated in the small village of Beaulieu, just a stones throw from Palace House and right next to the Beualieu river its a smashing place to get married. The hotel itself has quite a few rooms and there are a number of B&B’s, plus the excellent 3 star Beualieu hotel a couple of miles away, so your guests can stay over and enjoy the party!
The Montagu Arms was originally created in the 16th Century as a local Inn for the Beualieu estate, so it has lots of character. one of the main benefits is its beautiful enclosed gardens, so you can enjoy your drinks reception in the sunshine under a very impressive Magnolia tree. Our advice is watch out for the crafty sparrows when you have canopies! If you visit the Montagu Arms then make the most of the cream teas they serve as you will get the best service and teas in the New Forest. The Hotel restaurant boasts one of the only michelin star dining experiences as well as 3 rosettes, so the food is spot on. There is a pub next-door (also owned by the hotel) if you want a simpler (and cheaper) option.
Wedding ceremonies at the Montagu Arms Hotel take place in the main dining room or the smaller room at the back of the hotel and are both lovely areas to get married. The drinks reception is in the garden or in the lounge/conservatory area and the main meal back in the restaurant. All of the weddings we have DJ’d or hosted at the Montagu Arms have been very relaxed, so if thats what you want then this is the right venue for you! The evening party also happens in the restaurant area and usually finishes at midnight.
