Came here and had the steak sandwich with chips. Exactly what I felt like. Yum! Well done pub food. The service though was awesome, very attentive, friendly staff. I have worked in hospo a long time and I couldnt fault the staff. Great work guys.

Me and my girlfriend went for lunch there after hearing positive things, and I have to say they were correct. The food was tasty and well priced, and the young lady who served us (I think her name was Ellie) was very pleasant and accommodating. I would not hesitate in recommending this place to friends.

Went this place a few times mainly because it was such good value you couldn't cook it yourself cheaper! I loved the open steak sandwich for $12!

Went to Monty's for lunch one Friday during a very slow, long work day. The waitress Ellie was so friendly and helpful; I was really in the mood for a hot drink and hot food and she looked after me. Definitely recommend Monty's, and I recommend Ellie!

I often visit Monty's for lunch as they do great food and bargain deals. For a change, I went there for a few drinks with friends the other night and really enjoyed the environment. The staff are always so welcoming and Ellie in particular made sure we were looked after and had a really enjoyable evening! I will be back... More

The appetizers and beverages were great - try the red or the cider. Appetizer menu was kind of limited, but the quality and quantity was good for what we ordered. However, after waiting a long time, we had to hunt down a server, and again each time we ordered more food or drinks. We went twice at different times of... More
