Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of inner-city dining, Summer House is an oasis retreat perfect for a relaxing dinner in a group or as a couple.
The setting and its surroundings really set it apart from other restaurants in the area. The lush, open seating plan makes it an ideal pick on a warm summer’s night, and the live music (Wednesday – Sunday) is the perfect addition to the tranquil atmosphere.
While there are a handful of mains offered on the menu, your best bet is to pick a couple of tapas dishes. The Korma meatballs with mint yogurt and Turkish bread is a solid, as is the Crispy five spice Chicken - a recommendation from one of their waitresses.
The standout dish, however, was the Szechuan Calamari with Citrus Mayonnaise. Too many times have we had squid or calamari dishes in the past either dripping in oil or too rubbery to eat. This was neither, and the Szechuan coating wasn’t heavy or too dry.
Summer House also boast an extensive drinks menu packed with a range of ales, ciders, wine and cocktails.
