Midsummer House is a Victorian villa built beside the banks of the River Cam and on Midsummer Common in the historic University City of Cambridge. We are built on common land which still operates grazing land laws all year so you will often see cows grazing off the land and coming up to our front door to say hello.
In 1998 the restaurant was taken over by Daniel Clifford with one dream, to turn it into Cambridgeshire’s best restaurant.
The iconic apple trees in our kitchen garden also have history with Daniel and the restaurant as they are featured on our signature dish, scallop, truffle and apple and have been on his menu from opening which is used all year round. Over Daniel’s time at Midsummer House the building has been developed and nurtured in many areas but at the same time he has tried to keep the style sympathetic to the buildings history. Over the years the style of food has developed but the techniques and passion to provide our guests with a unique experience have remained the same. Daniel’s menu and style of food focuses on the most seasonal produce and his dishes are developed to make the taste as natural as possible.
The restaurant was awarded its first Michelin Star in 2002 followed by the second in 2005.
