“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

This used to be so good, fine dining at it's best but not anymore. There is a new chef who has no idea what goes with what. The main courses are dreadful. Fruit de Mer which is in fact boring old fish pie with very little fish in it. For some reason he thinks that a relish with chicken should be so full of vinegar that it makes your eyes water and your throat close up. Gypsy sauce on pork which is a sort of sweet and sour but tastes like he emptied the vinegar bottle in it. The food is just piled on the plate with no thought to presentation looks like canteen food.

“Pleasant surroundings, great food attentive staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

We ate twice at Summerhill having prebooked so ate a three course meal for £20 bargain, except the first night we couldn't manage two courses never mind three!

The food was good but the menu wasn't changed for the second evening so could have been boring has we eaten more than twice.
The ambience was lovely very calming and the staff were lovely very helpful.
We are
Looking forward to visiting again.

“Fine Dining - If you say so”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Terrible food, badly presented and flavours must only work in the chef's mind. All over cooked, not good quality ingredients and only just warm. Not fibishne dining by any stretch of the imagination, left most of the food and the atmosphere is rub
