Our Afternoon Tea will be temporarily closed due to current travel restrictions. During this time, our team will be working hard to ensure the hotel is at its best, and ready to welcome you back soon.
In elegant surroundings
There's nowhere better to savour a delicious traditional Afternoon Tea than Summer Lodge Country House Hotel & Restaurant, in the idyllic English countryside. Our tea was recently commended in the 2019 Afternoon Tea Awards.
At Summer Lodge we try to make sure everything's special, and for many years we have welcomed guests and locals for our famous Afternoon Tea which can be enjoyed in the Conservatory, Whiskey Lounge, Drawing Room, or during finer weather, outdoors on the terrace.
