We were staying at summer lodge so had afternoon tea and later in the evening we dined in the restaurant. The setting was delightful and the food and service exceptional. Though expensive it's definitely worth it for a special occasion!

We have visited this restaurant several times before, but we felt this time the food was even better. Both dinners were delightfully presented and cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend it.

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.

Thank Sally F
