We stopped on here for lunch again. I say again because we always stop here as the great food and friendly service is consistent. Our amazing waiter(didn't get his name) was friendly, very funny and effecient. The food was great as usual. Highly recommended. We will be back.

We had occasion to order one of their Beef Burger specials last Sunday. Normally we pop in a bit later for Belgian waffles (one of the best) but thought we'd try the burger for a change. Outstanding! Big juicy, home-made patty, with crispy bacon, cheese sauce and caramelised onions, backed up on fresh rolls and great french fries. One of the best burgers we've had in a long time! Oh, and usual great service. Well done guys!

From the minute you walk through the door you are welcomed by Sergio and Cay as well as the furry babies and made to feel like you are home away from home. The food was absolutely sublime! Would highly recommend to all that stay or pass through Montagu to visit The Rambling Rose

Looking for a breakfast and coffee sitdown. This little place is easy to spot, right next to the road. It took us a while to sit down and eat, as the shop has the most beautiful looking breads and cakes.
Enjoyed a coffee and croissant.

We stumbled into the Rambling Rose on a cold wintry afternoon during Lock-down - what a wonderful find when all other facilities were closed! It has a large excellent menu and great coffees which were all excellent for take-away, and perfectly prepared. The excellent service that we received surpassed everything we encountered during the week, well done - we will be back!
