The food was good but not outstanding,the white wine was not cold enough.

We had a surprise taster menu for a party of 10 for my 50th birthday . The food was out of this world. The service and presentation was amazing they explained each course as it was presented to the table. The chef came out at the end of the meal which is extra special treat. We have already booked to... More

Although we only used the restaurant once during our stay, the food was excellent and beautifully presented. As a bonus, the choice of single malts, is second to none!

What a beautiful location. Fantastic high quality food in this fine old English hotel. Very lovely walks around the village of Evershot and the fabulous Melbury Park. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I reserved a table for a Birthday lunch at this Relais & Chateaux Hotel/Restaurant. The Hotel has a wonderful ambience, relaxed understated elegance and charm. Staff were superb . Food on a set menu but with choices in each course was excellent all preceded by an included glass of Prosecco - would definitely recommend Summer Lodge

Nothing to add other than I take my hat off to the Chef/Chefs who cook and prepare these outstanding dishes.

My husband booked for us to go to Summer Lodge for Valentine's Day, and the evening could not have been more perfect. We both opted for the taster menu with the accompanying wines - and I think that it was the joint best meal I have ever had - and I have been lucky enough to eat at quite a... More

Four years on from my last visit to this amazing restaurant and the whole experience was just as sublime as the last time. I really cannot fault a thing, nor would I want to. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave the service is second to none. We went into the very comfy lounge and had a... More

Wonderful food, as long as you are expecting the finer things! The service was great fun to behold as about half a dozen staff gathered around us & simultaneously whipped away our plates, giggles abound! Very pricey evening but worth it for a big birthday or special treat. I recommend that you go for the secret menu & wine choices... More
