We visited Midsummer House at lunch time, on a Friday for the 5 course "tasting menu". Finding it was interesting, do not try to drive as parking is very difficult. We had a gentle stroll along the Cam to whet our appetites and then went...More

A beautifully balance dining experience with colour, texture, temperature and flavour all finely balanced to create a treat for the senses. Full of surprises, plenty of wow factor and skilful service, this restaurant is up there with the best in the country.

Can't fault this place (well maybe only the price of the water ). Fab food, lovely staff, relaxed and enjoyable - even got to meet Daniel who took time to say hello even though it was near the end of a busy evening service

Not for every day, Midsummer House is just a great, great place to eat if you have time and want to savour every mouthful and enjoy great wine with your food. The young woman sommelier was the highlight of our evening, pairing wines for us...More

The meal is more of an experience for people who appreciate many, small, beautifully presented plates of exquisite taste and sensation. It is not a conventional meal where you choose your courses, although they do cater for any allergies or intolerance that a guest may...More

I think it's a set menu, which includes meat and fish. If you ask in advance, they may serve vegan for you.
