A beautiful restaurant in beautiful surroundings. The Staff are very polite and helpful. The food is delicious if not a little expensive especially for Sunday Lunch. Very very expensive drinks and Wine.

I was treated to a birthday lunch by by two best friends, which was a lovely surprise. Having wanted to visit this restaurant for a very long time, I was not disappointed. The menu was well balanced and interesting, I would have been happy to have any of the dishes. The service was impeccable, the portions perfect and the surroundings... More

My children decided to give my wife afternoon tea at Summer Lodge as a birthday present, she was not disappointed. Tea begins in a drawing room with reserved coffee tables. You are then given a menu with a choice of teas. These are then served by a highly efficient " French ?" waiter. No attention to detail is too small.... More

I have a severe nut allergy and am used to being told that I can't have certain things on the menu (puddings are normally pretty much off limits). Not a problem here. I was told I could choose whatever I wanted, and if the dish contained nuts they would remake it for me without. The staff all seemed to understand... More

We had a lovely meal in Summer Lodge. We took our Basset Hound and as dogs are not welcome in the restaurant a beautiful table was set for us in the Whisky Bar, complete with an open fire, much appreciated by our hound! We had the 'surprise menu' with the wine flight and each of the six courses were excellent... More
