The Restaurant

Award winning fine dining in Dorset

Dining at Summer Lodge is a truly memorable experience.

Steven and his team serve traditional English dishes tempered with a twist of modern European. It's an exquisite combination that has had critics scribbling in their napkins! Offering the finest meats and the most delicately cooked fish dishes, many of the ingredients are sourced from the wealth of fine produce found in our locality, and from our own gardens.

Eric Zwiebel, Sommelier extraordinaire, has created a wine list that compliments each dish superbly and will be more than happy to assist in selecting a wine to suit and delight.

Children under 12 years old are welcome to dine in the restaurant at lunchtime and in the Conservatory at any time.
