We loved this place and I’m sure we’ll be back! The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. It’s also very safe in the COVID-19 era.
Gr8 from start to finish
First time visiting The Summerhouse. Very easy to locate and situated right next to the canal if not on it. Greeted by staff and shown to our table. Staff were very friendly. Very reasonably priced. Great good and portion sizes were perfect. Will definitely visit again
Every measure was taken to make sure customers were safe with covid measures in place.
Fishcake was very very average, nothing special for a restaurant quality dish, very disappointing
Great place , must try!
Great place to eat good food and service and amazing position
Lovely restaurant and child friendly with definitely recommend to my mummy friends!!!
Our local favourite
Overall feeling underwhelmed. The atmosphere is great and the decoration is beautiful. It feels like such a missed opportunity for a great restaurant, as the food is quite basic, while still pricey. The service is good.
I wouldn’t come back unless there was a significant improvement in the food, they d win at focusing only on fish and add better recipes. Cheese platter was also really bad, really felt like the y throw 3 pieces of cheeses and 3 crackers on a plate, need to try more.
Beautiful settings, would think your abroad. The cocktails were amazing. Food delish and could not fault the service!
Such a hidden gem, great food, atmosphere, service and views. Super chilled and impeccably clean.
I requested for a table by the canal to celebrate my partner's and my birthday. The request was not met till we arrived at the restaurant and I asked. My partner had Risotto primavera and I had the Summerhouse selection. Disappointingly the risotto was blend and watery, while the Summerhouse selection looked like other ppl's leftover dinner put together. Maybe we were not good at choosing our food.
Fantastic in every way! The dood was amazing! We will definately be back!
The location is beautifully positioned, the staff are all very friendly and strong Covid-19 measures are in place. Last, but not least - the food was delicious!
Excellent restaurant with adherence to COVID protocol.
We really enjoyed everything about this idyllic summer lunch spot. George was wonderfully attentive on the phone and the staff, food, ambience, was super. Highly recommend as a romantic or just relaxed spot for a summer lunch.
food is amazing and staff is friendly. One feels been taken care of.
We had a lovely table overlooking the canal. The service was impeccable with COVID safety measures in place. The SeaBass to Share was presented as an art form and was perfect for a romantic evening.
I love the Summerhouse and it was great to be back . Food superb as always , and clearly managing the new regulations very well , however I do have to mention the really ugly screens with the black tape ..... a real eyesore in such a lovely place ... there are far nicer ones !
Although tables at The Summerhouse were spread further apart during this Covid period, and some were separated by perspex screens, we still felt that the social distancing was not good. The diners next to me were not separated by a screen and were just 18 inches away - we felt uncomfortable with the poor social distancing and will not return until Covid ends. That said, the service and food was great.
The place is beautiful and the atmosphere is lovely but the food is really overpriced. Nothing special, the dishes are very basic and no seasoning for the sea bass which I though was very pricey. Lack of flavour and presentation. I read the reviews before hand and went in thinking I’ll see for myself, but I agree with those saying it’s over priced. I wouldn’t recommend as there are other places in this price range but that are better in terms of food.
Pandemic precautions have actually improved this restaurant...it used to be a bit too crowded. The idyllic location is a natural advantage, the cuisine lives up to it.
Very tasty food and the staff very kind and the place amazing
Food v. good although portions could be much more generous.
Efficient, friendly, appropriate for these times. Accommodated us for special occasion with canal side table as requested.
Food was great but very rushed given that we had a 10pm reservation.
Rushed due to the kitchen closinh. Once starters were finished, they were immediately taken off our table. The mains were served straight away. We were told to order our food immediately due to the kitchen after being seated which took the whole dining experience away.
After offering the feedback to the restuarant, it almost felt like it fell on deaf ears. Why take a booking at 10pm if your kitchen is closing at 10:15? It doesnt make any sense.
We paid no service charge and that was removed off the bill. Again, there were no questions asked here and no suggestions were made by the staff to improve the dining experience if we return. 0 stars for these guys, apart from the food being great and the view - we won’t be returning here due to the bad service.
“Many thanks for making Sept 12th a day for our English teacher to remember her 81st birthday.The meal and ambience was lovely and enjoyed by all. Please thank your staff for all their hard work and being so friendly and helpful. Also your riverside looked lovely.“
Delicious lunch in beautiful surroundings
Fabulous food. Fabulous venue. Helpful and friendly staff.
Great location especially on a beautiful sunny day and being sat on the terrace overlooking the Canal. The seafood was fresh and delicious. Staff friendly and attentive too.
Consistently good restaurant and we have visited many times, great setting on the canal and our place to go for special occasions.
The Summerhouse has the most stunning views and so much character. We had booked a table for 4o'clock and was a little early so had to wait to be seated but this was no issue. We sat on the decking outside and was asked if we wanted any drinks while we waited. We then was seated in the most perfect spot right by the amazing view! The food was lovely and fresh. It was quite expensive but we thought it was worth it. Recommend going for lunch on a sunny day. The staff came across at times as a little snooty but that didn't bother us as the venue and food was great!
Great canal side location, and open airy space. Half a roast chicken Is ample for two people though. Thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch and the place was extremely popular.
Great food and atmosphere
An enjoyable meal (brunch) in a pleasant setting. We really appreciated the waiting staff wearing masks and the separations between tables. Just FYI, downsides were that the food (English and vegetarian breakfasts) arrived luke warm - the halloumi was hardly cooked - and the lack of vegan options.
Always excellent. Lovely setting. Great food, wine, service. .
Great location, appropriate COVID precautions. Small menu, but very fresh fish. Overall a very good neighbourhood restaurant.
We had our first lunch out for many months . The safety standards were good as was the food. Quite expensive even with the discount but we had good time
Fabulous evening- magical with canal boats, ducks and swans swimming by...
Great to see it well patronised. Food and service very good!
