About Monty's Restaurant & Wine Bar

Monty's restaurant and wine bar was opened in February 2016 by co-founders Jonathan Montgomery and Darren Swann.

Monty’s is an English-style restaurant which fuses the mouthwatering cuisine of the UK with an international twist, presenting British classics in an exciting way. Situated a stone’s throw away from the sea in Southsea’s independent high street Castle Road, Monty’s works with the finest local suppliers in Portsmouth to ensure the freshest and highest-quality ingredients, food, and drink. Monty’s also sourced locally-made furniture, art, and signage for their recent refurbishment, creating a beautifully inviting interior.

Tom Lefevre, the executive head chef at Monty’s, said: “We are passionate about the changing seasons and fresh foods that are in tune with the land. I look forward to producing a menu with seasonal changes, monthly.

“Traditionally, the best cuisine for any region was based on local produce that is available at a particular time of year. Our own traditions of cooking followed the cycles of the year, recognising that the freshest produce makes the best ingredients and for this reason a truly seasonal cuisine is our goal at Monty’s.

“We are proud of the range and quality of locally sourced produce available in Hampshire and we are working with the best farmers and producers to deliver a cuisine that reflects the best our country has to offer.

“The restaurant menu will vary every month and will be based on seasonal local produce.”
