Great food, nice atmosphere, good service. Not cheap but we weren't going expecting a cheap lunch

Boasting a coveted AA Rosette, The Blue Door Bistro at the Montague Hotel boasts an informal bistro-style setting. Sumptuous British cuisine is served in the timeless dining room, featuring vintage artwork depicting London circa 1849, and glamorous mirrored panels.

A simple yet refined selection, The Blue Door menu takes influence from across Europe. Alongside succulent cuts from the grill, moreish main courses include duck cottage pie with fresh vegetables, or artichoke ravioli with pine nut butter. Nostalgic dessert recipes at The Blue Door London include Bea’s rice pudding with salted caramel, or pear & apple crumble.

In warmer climes, decamp to the al fresco hideaway of The Blue Door’s Garden Grill, where a la carte offerings, sizzling barbecue dishes and traditional afternoon teas can be enjoyed overlooking the Bedford Estate. Befitting its luxury 4-star surroundings, The Blue Door’s afternoon tea is an elegant selection of fine teas and towers of fresh scones lathered with jam and clotted cream.

Enveloped by lush greenery, the secluded al fresco patio at The Blue Door Bistro Russell Square is a leafy hideaway in summer. Russell Square Tube Station is 4 minutes’ walk away.

    Flash from the past. This reminded me of restaurants my parents took me to 50 years ago. I loved it. Not for everyone but if you want to see how things were done properly, the service, the meals etc then this is the place.
    They even delivered an actual caesar salad, the kind restaurants all produced when it first became an item, with anchovies and egg based sauce. Terrific.
    Little things like proper cutlery, napkins placed on the lap, meals all coming at once, etc.
    Lovely cauliflower soup. Steaks, lamb, all done perfectly, although perhaps a bit bland, just like in my parent's day!
    And the other common rooms of the hotel are out of some Edwardian novel. Impeccably clean washrooms.
    Loved it and will go back!

    Semi-outdoor dining, with heating, was a lovely experience.

    We had lunch with four family members. We particularly enjoyed the different salts offered with the lovely breads while waiting for our meal.
