Very nice place, excellent food and service, price/quality is good, maybe some room for improvement on the wine list and learning what wine with what course and being able to recognise them after they have been poured to avoid giving the wrong wine to guests ;-)

Great place by the river. We had a table looking outside, the sun came out and helped shape a gorgeous view

Service could be quick but we explained to the waitress that we wanted to take our time for apperitive and starters and all our wishes were fullfilled.
The food is nice, good quality product with taste. The price worth it.
THe restaurant was full but reasonable noise level, very appreciated.

Friendly staff and lovely atmosphere but I’m a foodie and the food is terrible at this place. It was our second attempt, after a disastrous brunch, and last. Food doesn’t deliver. Specially for the price charged. No flavour, small portions and just boring food. Honestly, even my partner agreed that I cook better food at home. Very disappointing. Not coming back

Been visiting this restaurant for some years now. It doesn't get it 100% right 100% of the time, but like a good friend, I no longer worry about the minor negatives as it's a friendly place with well intentioned service and a consistently high standard of cooking. I've never had a poor meal or a bad experience.

Repas en famille avec nos 4 enfants. Un endroit charmant, un service et un professionnalisme au top. Nous n’avions qu’une heure pour déjeuner (dommage), malgré deux décalage d’horaire de notre part, super accueil, taxi retour à l’heure pour partir à Winter Wonderland , et des produits de super qualité dans l’assiette. Et que dire du charle de l’endroit avec la vue sur le canal !!! Magnifique. A refaire avec plus de temps.

Cosy, clean and light environment on a cold Winter’s day. Great decor with lots of nice plants and a good atmosphere. Food was very good, as was the recommended dry rose wine. Good service and attention to detail too. Will definitely return and would recommend highly.

We expected good food and atmosphere, but what particularly impressed us was the friendliness of the service, which is not always the case with destination restaurants. From the Maitre D to the servers the service was friendly and highly professional. I would definitely go back.

I had eaten once before at the Summerhouse, probably in summer, and remembered it as noisy but enjoyable. The food then seemed good, if pricey. This second visit, in winter, was quite different. The menu was enticing, but all 5 of us agreed that the food was mediocre to poor, especially at these prices. The service was patchy. I shan't return.

I found that The Summerhouse was an earthly, comfortable restaurant in which my family and I could rest and forget about the struggles of our daily lives. The food was exceptional, but it wasn't.

This was my second visit and the first in the winter - I was a bit nervous it would be cold but absolutely not - well heated. Had a great lunch - all the food was excellent. Great selection of starters and I was spoiled for choice. Would highly recommend

Had a lovely meal again. This restaurant is close to where is live and is rapidly becoming my 'go to' local. My only winge is the cost of a bottle of wine .... not just this restaurant ... I resent paying nearly £30 + service charge, for a bottle of wine that has a retail value of no more than £15 in a wine shop. The restaurant adds no value to the product, compared to the food to which it adds massive value, with expertise and flair.
