The autumnal season is a time of crisp mornings, long nights, and keeping cosy as the temperature drops. We can’t think of anything better this season than wrapping up in our favourite jumpers and sharing a great meal with family and friends. This feeling of warmth, comfort, and wellbeing, is known as ‘hygge’ in Denmark, and here at Montpellier Lodge, we’re embracing all aspects of this Scandinavian staple.
The perfect time of year for a coffee and a catch-up
As the weather begins to turn, and golden leaves litter the ground, there is no better time to pop into the Montpellier Lodge in Cheltenham for a coffee, a catch-up, and a warming autumnal atmosphere. Surrounded by the beautiful grounds of Montpellier Gardens, you can spend the afternoon enjoying the beautiful autumn weather before retiring to the former park-keepers house for a stunning meal.
From chunky knitwear to steaming cups of coffee, hot chocolate, or maybe something a little stronger, autumn is all about staying warm, comfy, and cosy. After an exciting and adventure-filled summer, Montpellier Lodge offers a beautiful, welcoming, and relaxed environment so you can do just that.
Autumnal inspiration throughout our menu
Autumn provides inspiration on so many levels, from make-up and fashion to interior décor. The availability of rich and earthy seasonal foods also offers an excellent opportunity to cook hearty recipes that will warm the heart. At Montpellier Lodge, autumn inspires us to make food that creates that feeling of comfort, well-being, and happiness as the weather begins to turn a little chilly.
Our wild mushroom and watercress linguine combines high-quality ingredients such as almond pesto, shaved parmesan, and crispy ‘hen of the wood’ mushrooms create a beautiful earthy flavour that will remind you of autumnal walks in the woods. If you want to hang on to summer for just a little bit longer, our beer-battered cod served with samphire, lemon salted fries and tartar sauce will remind you of those warm summer days by the seaside.
Pumpkin soup and ML punch, an awesome autumn deal
What is it about the power of the pumpkin this time of year? They invade our menus, our doorsteps, and even our lattes! The autumn season is the ideal time to harvest the pumpkin, so it’s no wonder that it inspires much of our autumnal food. It also has a beautifully rich, earthy and sweet flavour, making it perfect for hearty and warming food this season. From soups and stews to pies and sweet treats, pumpkin is a beautiful addition to any seasonal menu.
At Montpellier Lodge, we love embracing staple seasonal flavours, and we’ve got the perfect deal that you won’t want to miss out on this autumn.
