Square Meal Review of Midsummer House ?

Now into his second decade at Midsummer House, chef/patron Daniel Clifford continues to delight with a plethora of menus defined by direct, unabashed flavours and carefully sourced ingredients. The style may be classically minded, but it comes with an innovative streak and much is made of unexpected contrasts – think stone bass teamed with razor clams, cucumber, wasabi and sorrel or a stunning plate of slow-roast duck with English cherries, sweet potato, tamarind and hazelnuts. Meanwhile, other dishes such as beetroot cooked on open coals with sheep’s curd and horseradish offer a masterclass of distilled freshness. And like everything else that arrives from this two-Michelin-starred kitchen, desserts are an absolute joy to behold and savour. A brigade of friendly, helpful staff give a great boost to this polished and unfailingly impressive experience, while the Victorian villa by the river Cam is serenity itself, with the conservatory dining room overlooking a walled garden.

    Edesia Is Hungry :: Midsummer House

    Midsummer House, set on the picturesque Midsummer Green on the edge of the River Cam in Cambridge, is the 2 star restaurant of the very talented Daniel Clifford. We had to park on the other side of the river and cross a footbridge to get to the restaurant and ended up parking just near the house my mother was brought up in. The main room is the conservatory of Midsummer House, with a walled garden surrounding it, a light and airy environment. There is a choice of lunch, a 7 course Taste of Market menu and an 8 course Taste of Summer House menu, we went for the vegetarian and standard version of the Taste of Summer menu. Canapes were brought out whilst deciding on the menu's, a puree of tomato and vodka, essentially a slightly thicker bloody mary, fresh and flavourful, some fabulous cheese gougeres and an incredible pomme souffle filled with sour cream. I immediately knew we were in for a good meal, these were canapes of the highest order...
