Fuelled by an abundance of superb local ingredients, some of which are grown in the gardens, our Chef, Steven Titman, has developed a cuisine of international fame. His menus meet and exceed the exacting requirements of the Relais & Chateaux’s gastronomic standards, and the restaurant has recently been awarded Hotel Restaurant of the Year at the Dorset Food & Drinks Awards.
Fine dining and impeccable service go hand-in-hand at Summer Lodge and renowned sommelier Eric Zwiebel will be on hand to offer the finest suggestion of wine to accompany your meal. You can enjoy both in our light and airy conservatory, the elegant Restaurant, or in the warm cosiness of the Whisky Bar - with around 300 whiskies available. In the summer you can dine on the terrace, while our scrumptious traditional Dorset Afternoon Tea is served every day in the Drawing Room. You'll also not want to pass the cheese trolley which offers an award-winning selection of up to 27 cheeses. Dietary requirements including vegan options are also available.
In wonderful surroundings amidst beautiful gardens in the idyllic village of Evershot, there is no better place to enjoy the much loved tradition of Afternoon Tea.
Guests can enjoy a selection of tempting treats including:
- Warm scones with thick cream and home-made jam
- Delicate finger sandwiches including smoked Scottish salmon and cream cheese
- A wide choice of fine teas from around the world
"Using Dorset's abundant local produce, my resourceful and imaginative team use their strong classical foundations and light modern touches to provide guests with an exceptional dining experience - from fine dining in the restaurant to light lunches and our popular Afternoon Tea, our focus is always on serving cuisine of the highest standard."
Executive Chef, Steven Titman
