Summer House

What a venue for a group of friends to get together with good wine and fabulous food… A little retreat away from everyone else, allowing you to make the most of a little shelter, underneath the oak surround, but still having the feeling of alfresco dining.

Our Summer House really does give you the best of both worlds whilst providing a totally unique dining experience.

In addition to being the chosen venue for hundreds of weddings and private celebrations, We open our Edwardian Pavilion for special dining events such as Mother’s Day, Easter and Christmas.

With ample space and a marquee extension, we provide round tables with starched white linen , perfect for socialising. A favourite held in the Pavilion gardens is the BBQ start with a starter served to your guests or canapés then BBQ served by chef with salads served buffet style, followed by a delicious dessert. This is a popular idea with some wedding guests the day after the wedding served here or by the swimming pool, a chance to catch up with guests they missed spending time with at the wedding!

Our larger dining events are always a success with good food, good company and a fantastic atmosphere

Quotes tabGood morning Emma,
Can I wish you and all your staff a belated 'Happy New Year'! and thank you all for the lovely Christmas meal you and your staff provided for our company.

We have been using Ravenwood for some 20 years or more now and have always been more than satisfied. We always held our Managers meeting in the Pavilion the Managers love it in there, they all travel for various parts of the region and always comment that its a pleasure to attend our meeting at this venue, unfortunately changes happen and we tend to use our own premises now for meetings although we would always use the Pavilion for any of our other future meetings, ie, training staff etc; should it be necessary.

So a big thank to you all and I'm sending you a cheque in post today to cover outstanding invoice.

Look forward to meeting with you in the future.

Kind regards,

Quotes tabDear Sir or Madam

We came to your restaurant in October 2012 having booked a table for myself and my boyfriend (Adam) along with his parents to celebrate Adam's birthday.

At the time of booking I simply asked for a table of 4 for Sunday Lunch. You had been suggested as a venue by our next door neighbours, Tim and Natalie Blackmore, who recommended you highly.

Having never been before, we were all delighted at the level of service we received. The menu and quality of the food was excellent and the overall ambiance of the bar and Garden Room restaurant was perfect.

After our meal we were served coffee in the bar and your staff appeared carrying a lighted sparkler and chocolates singing "Happy Birthday to Adam." Not only was this a wonderful surprise, it was made all the more impressive by the fact that your waiter had simply picked up on the fact that it was Adam's birthday whilst serving us in the restaurant.

I have truly never been more delighted by a lunchtime meal and you can be assured I will recommend your restaurant whenever an opportunity arises and we plan to return again in the very near future

Many thanks again

Quotes tabDear Amanda
