Food is very subjective, however there is no doubt the food here is superb. Each time I visit it gets better and better. Has to be in the top ten in the U.K. What's even better is that it has a unique atmosphere (away from London) and most important the staff adapt to every customer. Don't know his name but... More

We visited as a birthday treat although wished we hadn't waited so long. Everything about the meal was amazing from the moment we entered the path to the sad moment that we reluctantly left. Each course, including the amuse bouche was beautifully introduced by friendly and engaging deliverers of tasty works of art - you could hardly call them servers... More

The evening tasting menu blew our minds, with flavours, textures and visual delights. All staff were friendly and attentive - particular mention for Maitre d' Marc, and our charming someliere. We were taken on a world tour with a different wine for each course, perfectly matched to the food. The best attention since we had the menu gastronimique at the... More

My wife was pregnant with our first child and we decided to go to Cambridge for an impromptu w/e away from London. She called and they had just gotten a last minute cancellation for dinner, what luck we had! we did the full tasting menu and what a delight. My wife couldn't have 2 of the dishes but they replaced... More

What a fantastic location, building, interior. The staff were brilliant, the kitchen looked full steam ahead. I honestly didn't realise that food could taste this good. It was like every food had been injected with the same food again giving it yet more flavour. This had now challenged me to find better, somewhere, somehow. Just a shame the man himself... More

Let's start by saying this is out of our usual experience. So it is a purely personal opinion. We have nothing like it to base it on. We were given a gift of a meal for two here by our lovely son simply because we love foodie programmes and good home cooking. With some trepidation we booked and waited for... More

We lunched here yesterday, sponsored by our son as a Christmas present. There is no point really in repeating the accolades from other reviewers. EVERYTHING was brilliant.

From the moment you arrive at Midsummer House you are made to feel very special, the service from all the team couldn't have been bettered, everyone is a credit to the establishment and Mark offered a relaxed and warm manner yet entirely professional and efficient. The food is sublime from the dainty little morsels served over drinks to the 5... More
