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.

We were invited to tea to share a friends 38th wedding anniversary celebrations. Sandwiches are not delicate or appetizing. They have bland fillings-thick bread with egg, soggy boring cheese with tomatoes, miniscule amount of limp cucumber. Tea was ordered for three but only 2 not 3 scones were served (these were burnt and rock buns). There was a very pleasant... More

We did not eat from the a la carte menu but we still had a choice from all three courses from the set menu. All courses were very good and well presented.

Down in Dorset recently for a week and booked into Summer Lodge as a treat at the end of the holiday. This is a Chateau and Relais place so not an everyday place to go, more of a special occasion place/treat as more high end. We were shown to the lounge area which was very stately home-esque. The attentive service... More

Reasonable to very good food. Beautifully presented but expensive. Breakfast is a delight served in the conservatory overlooking beautiful gardens. I ate here alone, spa trip courtesy of my husband, the pork dish from the a la carte menu was disappointing but they do offer amazing service. We ate here for my birthday last Christmas and my dessert came with... More

Four of us had the tasting menu. The meal was simply amazing. Having been fortunate to try restaurants all around the world, this is the one which we all agree stands out the most.

We wondered if the restaurant may be a little too formal, however quite the opposite. Yes this is fine dining and yes it is a 5* experience but you are never made to feel uncomfortable and all staff were friendly plus due to the layout, you really felt that you were dining alone. A neat touch! The food itself was... More
