Set in 4 acres of beautiful Dorset countryside, Summer Lodge Hotel Restaurant and Spa in Evershot is an elegant destination for fine dining. Natural light streams in to the refreshing conservatory dining area, with the menu, designed by acclaimed US chef Steven Titman, accompanied for an extensive wine list rated by Wine Spectator as one of the world’s finest.
The Summer Lodge menu makes the most of the south west’s excellent produce, with roast Dorset lamb, Rib of English beef and line-caught sea bass all present. Among the exquisite starters, try the wood pigeon with parsley and lemon gremolata, or Lyme Bay Scallops. For dessert, try English strawberry and Pistachio Mille Feuille or Hot Cointreau Souffle, to name a few.
Sumptuous Sunday lunches at the Summer Lodge restaurant include classic roasts as well as popular signature dishes. Meals especially designed for children make this a good choice for a family-friendly Suncay lunch in London.
The Summer Lodge Restaurant boasts a highly-regarded sommelier hosting regular wine dinners. Summer Lodge Hotel in Evershot is right in the centre of the village, and around 8 miles from Yeovil.

Fabulous afternoon tea in the lovely surroundings of the conservatory. The choice of teas was really good and we were each able to chose our favourite. The sandwiches were delicious and I was assured that my preference for ham instead of smoked salmon was no trouble at all. The cakes were amazing! My favourite was the rhubarb and vanilla tartlet - perfect! Plenty to eat, and those couple of cakes we didn’t quite have room for were boxed up for us to take home and enjoy later.

We were booked in for afternoon tea and it was delightful, superb darjeeling tea and the high tea spread was superb. However, we thought the bread for the sandwiches terrible. It was pre-sliced bread - white and brown - and tasteless as compared to the bread rolls we had with our lunch several weeks previously. Good quality bread raises the whole dining experience and that used in the sandwiches let down the collective dining experiences I have had at Summer Lodge. This may seem a minor point but as someone who bakes his own bread I find it hard to believe that, in an establishment that prides itself on the quality of its food, you can have let the standards slip.

We have been before and it was excellent, but on this occasion dire.Roast sirloin tough and unchewable. Replacement fish over cooked and equally bad. Wrong dessert given. Concerns poorly dealt with. Service generally haphazard. Very, very disappointing.

I cannot fault the food, from the nibbles that arrived with the pre-dinner drinks to the chocolates served with coffee at the end. The attention to detail with the presentation was superb and my vegetarian dish was a delight. For once, it was a pleasure to find a chef who had taken the time to compose a dish with care and thought. The carrot 'pastilla' was a beautiful dish created from the humble carrot and incorporating heritage carrots at the same time. As a vegetarian I have been disappointed by many of my meals in restaurants but not on this occasion. The service throughout was attentive without being fussy. If I had to make one suggestion for improvement it would be to your selection of beers. I am essentially a beer drinker, not volume but quality, and I thought your offerings very unimaginative. I appreciate that with draught beers it needs to be something that will sell as there is a time-frame in which it needs to be consumed but there are plenty of opportunities locally to expand the bottled range of beers. For example, the Gyle 59 brewery and the Cerne Abbas brewery would be my recommended suggestions but there are many others.
