The afternoon tea at Summer Lodge is a relaxing experience with exemplary service in a lovely location. We arrived after a pleasant country drive on an afternoon with all the seasons, sunshine, rain and sleet. The sun came out as we arrived and the garden, even in early spring, was a nice view to look at as we ate. The... More

Old classic charm. Ate from the tasting menu which was faultless. Very good service from start to finish, they genuinely looked like they wanted to be there. Also a very good and approachable sommelier. Deserves more plaudits.

Visited here for an Afternoon Tea and would come back here again and again! Lovely tranquil atmosphere. The staff were attentive, unobtrusive and very professional. The cakes were extremely yummy, especially the orange eclair and lemon meringue pie! Have been meaning to come for ages, maybe even years, won't be leaving it as long next time!

We had the privilege of dining at the Summer Lodge restaurant last week during our stay and the food is some of the best food we have ever tasted. The level of dedication and attention to service has to be experienced in order to do it justice. One can understand why their restaurant and hotel has received the awards and... More

You are treated to two tasters... More

Excellent food and service. Very quiet when we visited but it was a Sunday. We had breakfast in the conservatory with a beautiful outlook of the gardens and countryside in the background.

For our anniversary, we spend a week-end at the summer lodge and decided to trial their restaurant. What a great experience. We strongly recommend the tasting menu. It is great value for money with a range of flavour and dishes. Eric (sommelier) is clearly passionate about wine and share it with you. His advices were on the ball. The recommended... More

We were staying in Evershot to celebrate my 30th and booked here for dinner. The hotel was very quiet, warm and suitably festive for the season. After drinks in the lounge we were taken to the table where there was a lovely birthday card and some special chocolates laid out for me with a rose! It was very sweet! The... More
