My wife & I were given, for our anniversary, gift vouchers for a "Three Course a La Carte Dinner" at Summer Lodge. As it's an hour's drive away it was not somewhere we had dined at previously but it was certainly worth the effort of driving there! Having dined at some of London's finest restaurants over the years we rate... More

My God what a beautiful, extraordinary place this is ! Had a superb lunch there. For the two of us came to £75. Not cheap but worth every penny. This hotel and restaurant was the former home of Lord Evershot. This was his country seat and so when you sit in the restaurant it's a place bursting with history as... More

My partner and I visited SL for Afternoon Tea. There was a really nice atmosphere, very relaxing. The sandwiches were probably no better than what could be made at home but the scones were the best I've ever tasted along with the cakes. My only tiny criticism was that when we arrived we were placed on a sofa and we... More

We have visited this restaurant for lunch and dinner, at all visits flavours in all the food is amazing. Presentation cannot be faulted. Service is faultless. Lunch menu is smaller but super value. Three choices for each course. On the dessert course there is the option of cheese and biscuits, the choice of cheese is amazing. We will continue to... More

Summer Lodge is a delightful environment and the hotel is stylish in an english country house style. On arrival, I had to ask to be served drinks. One does not expect this in an environment of this class, drink service should have been swift. They had no Prosecco and the sparkling water requested was served without lemon or lime. Menu... More

Excellent food, just right sized portions and presented very well. My only moan is that the menus didn't change over the three days we were staying, so we only had dinner there once.

We were bitterly disappointed with the cream teas and the extortionate price. Celebrating my 50th we wished to do something memorable and new the price was £28 per person for a cream tea. I anticipated more flavour and volume. There were 4 finger sandwiches each person. The bread was a normal supermarket sliced loaf, the fillings we no different in... More

Our evening started with Pre dinner drinks in the Whisky Library with delicious canapes and then into the elegant restaurant with rose strewn curtains and wall paper, sparkling glassware and perfect white tablecloths. A large party of American tourists had a private dinner in the Conservatory one night which did not detract from the service in the rest of the... More

We visited the Summer Lodge Restaurant whilst staying in Evershot for a short break.From the moment we arrived we were immediately impressed by the standard of service we received which continued throughout the meal. Whilst enjoying a pre dinner drink we were treated to a couple of tasty sampler dishes. On being shown through to the restaurant we liked the... More
