Our wine list is spectacular. I regularly take part in competitions to stay abreast of trends and developments throughout the world and our list has won many awards because of its balance and diversity. Our cellar is recognised as one of the best in the world by the Wine Spectator Magazine. I look forward to taking you on the most delicious tour! I am always getting to know amazing wines and learning many interesting things that I hope will enhance your food and beverage experience.

I feel really lucky to live in Dorset and to have had so many amazing experiences meeting people from all over the world at Summer Lodge. I would be delighted to arrange all aspects of your reservation in advance and during your stay, and to add thoughtful touches such as homemade chocolates, a bouquet of flowers from our in-house florist, a falconry experience or tickets to a local attraction. Please do let me know if you are celebrating a special occasion so we can make your experience even more memorable.

  • Head Barman

My passion for our bar has helped me to create an extensive beverages list. I hope I will have the opportunity to share with you my love for whiskies and perhaps even entice you to try one of the best in the world from Japan. I can also help you to design your favourite cocktail, book a whisky masterclass or offer you drinks for a 'healthy gut' I look forward to welcoming you and showing you our Red Carnation passion for excellence.

  • Executive Housekeeper

Total comfort and cleanliness are the aims of my cheerful and hardworking team. No two rooms are the same and furnished as they are in the style of a large private home, they create a homely feel that is as pleasurable for us as we hope it will be for you. We have a wide variety of pillows, duvets and bed sizes, and cater for preferences in specific colours, music, DVDs and so much more. The aspect of my job that I enjoy the most is the attention that I pay to detail as well as the comfort and care I relish in providing to our guests.

I am delighted to work in the heart of the Dorset countryside and to have the freshest, sustainable, locally-sourced produce at my fingertips, as well as incredible ingredients from our kitchen gardens, to create delicious menus for our guests.

  • Restaurant Manager
  • restaurantsl@rchmail.com

I joined Summer Lodge in December 2005 as a barman and have been Restaurant Manager since 2010. I come from just outside Paris where I worked in highly rated Michelin starred restaurants during my catering school periods. I also enjoyed work experience in Berkshire at the Vineyard at Stockcross. My passion for quality of service and entertainment, combined with the friendliness of my wonderful and vibrantly young team are important parts of making Summer Lodge seem like your second home. There is no request too large and no detail too small.  Our Restaurant at Summer Lodge is the perfect place to relax. The surroundings are magnificent and there is so much to see and do. My team and I look forward very much to welcoming you and making Summer Lodge the perfect place to stay.
