"Saturday diner tasting menu. Some simply amazing dishes here especially to start with but did fade away towards the end though. Service was very good and appropriately engaging however at times the staff seemed in competition with each other rather than working together. Ambience was nice and being in a conservatory worked surprisingly well."
"Absolutely incredible food, I don't think I've ever had scallops that good. Wait staff did an excellent job of looking after us and were surprisingly down-to-earth."
"Far superior to our previous visit when it felt that Clifford was pushing out his Great British Menu successes without much thought to flavour. On the ten course taster menu every course from bar one excellent. Service superb, notably from the sommelier who guided us through the flight of wines from around the world with real charm. Lovely to have coffee in the garden afterwards. Dining room still feels a bit like a furniture village showroom."
"After using this restaurant for many years we stopped coming when they dropped their excellent a la carte, however hearing recent good reports we visited again. We decided on the top, ten course, option, we were not really won over, many courses had many, but to small, patches of flavour to really appreciate. The beetroot baked on open coals, prepared in an expensive barbecue gadget which uses many celeb chefs in their marketing, consisted of a medium size red beet extensivly charred and served with much ceremony as if it were a grouse was nothing to really excite, very little if any flavour had permeated to its centre, the part which was carved and served. Many of the following courses were much better but there was not one dish which really stopped us in our tracks. There are far better and more reasonably priced multi course dinners around.. Many chefs can be seen through the large kitchen viewing mirror and many waiting staff which must be a main cause of the cost. The wine list does have some lower cost bottles though the wine by the glass all hovers around the £15 mark."
"It was our great pleasure to revisit Midsummer House and it did not disappoint in any way except that the Garden was still under reconstruction which was a pity. The flight of wines had a number of surprises especially beer with one course! and the cost of extra wines probably a little over the top. Very enjoyable."
