As we were staying in the Montcalm, we decided to treat ourselves to breakfast in the Aviary. From the very moment we stepped into the aviary we were made to feel unwelcome. We were abruptly greeted by a host who looked to be the manager...More

Wasn't sure at first as we felt under dressed (jeans- and trainers - hadn't planned to go here) but that didn't seem to bother the staff. Food was excellent, nice red wine, great service and great fixed menu price.

My daughter & her friend have just returned from an evening at your restaurant, they had booked a table yet on arrival they were interrogated as to how old they were even though they were not going to the bar & just there to eat. During the evening when my daughter went to the toilet she was followed by a female security guard who checked the cubicle she’d been in & asked her if she’d taken anything! I’d like to know if this is common practice?! I truly wished I’d been there, my daughter has never felt so embarrassed & sickened in all her life. This same female security guard along with another male security guard then stared at my daughter & friend the rest of the evening. I am very interested to hear your thoughts. Please let me know the Managers name so I can contact them directly. I can not believe your moronic heavies treat young people this way, wonder how she’d feel to have her evening ruined.
