Lovely area, magnificent sensibly valued sustenance, recommend reserving a spot straightforwardly, we got an early reservation, yet when we had completed there were numerous many individuals holding up. Semi formal, and great neighborly staff

This is one of those restaurants that you go to for a special occasion because it's on the pricey side. Brought my friend here for her birthday, and we had an excellent experience. If you come here, try and get a window table. The food...More

Good restaurant with a wonderful view, and good atmosphere, but not worth what they charge. The last time we were there, w were disappointed with the quality or the amount of money charged, and we haven't been back since.

We had a really wonderful dinner here. The food was terrific, and the service was just perfect. My brother and I had the prime rib, which is what they are known for, and my friend had the lamb shank. The prime rib was mouth watering,...More

We went for dinner and found people were well dressed. But they seemed an accommodating place that would accept dress shorts.

All restaurants are different and have various prices for curtain events. I have had a private party room at the Summit House and the cost for the extra staff to cater the event was included. So, I suggest that if you have... More

For centuries the English Inn has earned a great reputation for friendly faces, cozy rooms and cheery firesides. As soon as guests come to the Inn, the charming hosts and hostesses run to greet them. In front of a crackling fire one can partake of good hearty fare - the tankard is always full - the spit hung with roasting beefs - and a table heaped with sweets and such. The Inn Keepers of the Summit House are inspired by this custom to create an hospitable place where friends can meet to eat, drink and delight in the views of North Orange County's countryside. To one and all, welcome!
