A wonderful way to spend an evening

Each evening was an event, the food and service are excellent. One is not rushed and you can linger over coffee either in the restaurant or in the very comfortable lounge.

We went on a dinner to the summer lodge and were really surprised. Delicious food, nice setting, attentive service. We had the starters and main course and everything was exceptional. I don't think anything remained on anybody's plate!

A reasonably pleasant dining room with very attentive staff, some with not easily understood English, an extensive menu and a chef who knows his job. Downside is the high price to be paid for both the food and the drinks.

This is the Hotel's only restaurant and is located in a beautiful room with superb staff. The quality of the food is excellent but as with most fine dining restaurants, the portions are on the small side. The prices were what you would expect from this style of restaurant.

We love visiting Summer Lodge and celebrating special occasions with family and friends. First time disappointed with lunch: egg foam and caviar, too salty. Main course potatoes over cooked and carrots under cooked. Service excellent as always. The ground a are a delight the eye and a real treat at this time of year.
