Four of us had lunch in the restaurant yesterday, we have stayed here a couple of times and called in for lunch several times. £26.00 for three courses, it doesn't get better than that! Champagne by a lovely log fire then we ate in the conservatory, the service was wonderful, food was wonderful and the wine even better! Coffee and... More

See my report under Hotel Reviews - November 2014. Cosy, some tables had pretty couches that you sat in and the table was placed conveniently, log fire, lots of silver plated animals, birds, everything out of the World for me.

Went to Summer Lodge yesterday for afternoon tea to celebrate a colleagues retirement. Conservatory very cold afternoon tea served on plates rather then the normal stands. One pot of tea with one tea bag in between 3 people scones all piled up on one plate. Nobody checked if we were OK and when we wanted more tea we had to... More

Just returned from Summer Lodge having had Cream Tea. Waited 20 mins for order to be taken. Cream Tea was very disappointing. 2 small cold scones. Tea was like dish water, one tea bag for 3 people!!!! No body checked if everything was ok, had to ask for more tea. Service was awful.

Our first visit to Summer Lodge today to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was truly perfect. The service was excellent and the food divine. We both had rose veal for our main course and it was beautiful. We have tried other establishments in the Red Carnation chain and they all certainly raise the bar. We will surely be back

Three course lunch was the best meal that I can recall for a very long time. The visit was prompted by winning a voucher for lunch for two for £52. At £26 per head it was very good value. Summer Lodge is situated off the A37 between Yeovil and Dorchester in the small sleepy village of Evershot. It is a... More

I took my mum here for her 40th birthday after a recommendation from a friend. Upon arrival we were shown into the drawing room where we sat at the coffee table in front of the fire place. The staff were very attentive but gave us our own space so we did not feel rushed. Afternoon tea was lovely, a range... More

We arrived in good time for lunch and spent some time enjoying the beautiful gardens. On arrival at the hotel itself we were welcomed and shown into the drawing room to relax with a drink and olives, nuts etc. We were then seated in the dining room at a corner table which proved to be very comfortable. The anchovy caesar... More

See my main review.The restaurant lacked atmosphere,and whilst service was good,the food was overpriced,as was a large proportion of the wine on offer,although the choice was extensive and interesting.
