With its divine location right on the River Cam, Midsummer House is among East Anglia���s best restaurants. Once you���ve finished punting down the river and taking in the sights and sounds of the beautiful university city of Cambridge, pay Midsummer House a visit. Relaxed and elegant, with a sunny conservatory and perfect al fresco dining for warm summer evenings, this modern British restaurant offers a wide range of creative dishes with a sophisticated touch learned by Chef Patron Daniel Clifford throughout his years in Britain and France���s best restaurants. Passionate about ingredients, Clifford even uses the harvest from Midsummer House���s own 80 year old apple trees in his cookery.

Simply Amazing

I was lucky to deputise for a poorly colleague at a dinner at Midsummer House on January the 26th 2016. I've been three times before with the last visit being in January 2015. Since then, pretty much everything on the menu has changed but it is still as fantastic as before. The food is amazing... read more

It is a while since I took my friend to Midsummer House for her 70th birthday. I alerted the staff in advance and half way through our meal she was taken to meet Chef Daniel and to see the kitchen. A huge excitement and great privilege. As for the meal itself - there are hardly words to describe the imaginative... More

We had the 7 course set menu on Saturday for lunch. It really was stunning. The artichoke dish was the star but the whole meal, the service, in fact the whole experience was brilliant. Well done team and thanks for a great day.

There are three aspects to a dining experience, the food, the service and the theatre (atmosphere) and Midsummer delivers on all three with aplomb. The dining room is light and welcoming with views out to the private garden and an internal window providing a fantastic view of the action in the kitchen. The food is well considered and precisely the... More
