Two weeks ago my parents took me to Summer Lodge in picturesque Evershot in the heart of the Shire (Dorset) for dinner to celebrate my 30th – and I haven’t stopped raving about it to all my friends.

From the moment we entered to when we left we were made to feel special and given the un-devoted attention by the staff.
The one thing that sticks in my mind which sadly is very rare in a lot of West Country eating establishments is service. Okay, it was silver service which you don’t get everywhere but it’s the little things that make the difference. A smile, polite banter, and making sure everything is okay. I don’t think I’ve ever been anywhere where your napkin is placed on your lap, drinks carried to your table or canapés between every meal.
Apart from service, the food was amazing, Pimms first class and decor delightful – but don’t take my word for it, I insist you check it out. It may be a little on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for.
