We weren't sure what we were celebrating but we knew we wanted to push the boat out. Summer Lodge allows you to do just that. In our view a celebration is about the whole event not just about the food and at Summer Lodge you definitely get the whole event. A previous reviewer drew an analogy with being treated like...

Took 4 friends out to lunch to celebrate anniversary and could not fault service, food or wine. Everything was perfect and the lunch time menu price was excellent value. Thank you.

Fantastic Champagne Violette Cocktail served with canapés to start! Wonderful menus to choose from, wanted to try it all, so will have to go back ASAP! Homemade bread rolls, beautiful set menu which was exquisite and very filling and fabulous service again to match the hotel! Need to come back for the tasting menu!

7 of us went for a pre Christmas lunch as the family will be separated on the Christmas Day. We were welcomed into a very cosy and comfortable lounge, complete with period furniture and art, for a glass of champagne, before settling down to a three course meal. The food was superb and very reasonable. The wine list is stunning,... More

We ate in the restaurant for 3 consecutive nights and the different flavours and variety was impressive. The portion sizes were perfect, the carrot soup, the chicken breast and the chocolate brownie pudding were simply divine. Found the creme brûlée too heavy and the bream was wonderful but too strong for me. I would highly recommend a meal here, you... More

Had a really delicious lunch here, such lovely flavours, with great attention to detail. You could taste different flavours in every mouthful. Service was very attentive, and a bit more formal than I'm used to! Someone has really thought carefully not just about the food, but the whole experience. The setting is quite old fashioned, but I think that's nice... More
