We enjoyed Fathers Day Brunch at this quaint restaurant in a lovely setting. The outside section was under large trees but as it was a little cool, we sat inside where a lovely log fire was burning. The breakfast that we ordered was very tasty and nicely presented and the ambience was delightful spoiled only by 3 somewhat noisy parrots. I guess on a nice day their cages would have been outside but they werent particularly clean and very close to the tables. A wee bit offputting. All in all though, we enjoyed our visit.

Oude Kombuis just has everything. A rustic-romantic feel, a nice fireplace in winter, a lovely tea garden in summer, good food and good service. Oh, and fantastic coffee. I could go there every day.

Montagu can get chilly in the winter mornings so a fire is always a bonus. This place was not busy when we visited for breakfast - perhaps it does more lunch time trade?

Anyway, the food was good and presented as asked for. The waitress did not understand my question re the type of bacon that they use (shoulder/back/streaky etc) However, the bacon was actually very tasty and is most probably from a local farm.

The only irritation was that there was no credit card machine despite the fact that this is broadly displayed on the door. We also found that the reception counter was strewn with papers and looked very untidy. A minor point when the food is more important.

One wonders what would have happened if we had no cash?
Really not acceptable - we did not make a fuss but don't advertise something that is "missing"

Otherwise, a good breakfast.

Visited Montagu with a friend on 26-28 February. On our last day we visited De Oude Kombuis for brunch. Absolutely stunning! think country farmhouse with quirky deco, very welcoming. I had a scone, and a delightful creamy mushroom, egg and tomato combination on freshly baked bread. Efficient service too, the owner visited our table and prepared our hot beverages himself. If I lived in Montagu, I would surely make De Oude Kombuis my home.

we did not know about De Oude Kombuis when we visited Montagu and probably it would not have been our 1st choice because we were concentrating on places to eat around our hotel. But on our last stay at mystic tin , the owner requested if the morning breakfast could be served at their restaurant De Oude Kombuis as the mystic tin staff had their weekly off the next day. 3 of our group were vegetarian and that was not the problem and the manager said she would inform her husband who ran De Oude about our dietary preferences. next day when we landed there we found out from a very flustered husband that the manager had forgot to tell him about our dietary preferences but that we should not worry and he will make a plan! boy what a plan it was!! we have never seen such a huge breakfast in any of b and bs we have stayed before. both herbivours and carnivours bunch in our group were impressed with the quantity and more importantly the quality of the breakfast. it was yummy! the friendly host and his charming stories added to the whole experience of sitting in the garden and eating a hearty meal!highly recommended
