This place should have a Michelin star. Try the unbelievable Shepherds Pie! And they do great fish and super desserts.

Description
Dining at Summer Lodge is a truly memorable experience. Steven and his team serve traditional English dishes tempered with a twist of modern European. It's an exquisite combination that has had critics scribbling in their napkins! Offering the finest meats and the most delicately cooked fish dishes, many of the ingredients are sourced from the wealth of fine produce found in our locality, and from our own gardens.
