Castle Fine Art partners with Midsummer House

Situated along the leafy bank of the River Cam in Cambridge, the two Michelin-starred restaurant Midsummer House is famed for its innovative cuisine. Its chef patron, Daniel Clifford, has worked closely with our Cambridge gallery to curate the stunning display of our art in the restaurant, so for the latest issue of our magazine, we visited this beautiful space to discover why art is the perfect side dish for spectacular food. 

The restaurant showcases artworks by Lawrence Coulson, Paul Corfield, Lorenzo Quinn and Richard Rowan

Daniel told us: "What we create here at Midsummer House is art, so having the right art on the walls is just as important. Fine dining should be a multi-sensory experience. Everything our guests see, touch, feel, drink and eat from the moment that they arrive, to the moment they leave, adds to their overall experience.

"The process of curating the spaces with the Castle Fine Art team was amazing; it was just so easy. They really understand what we are looking for at the restaurant, but they're also not afraid to suggest alternative, thought-provoking pieces.

"A little-known fact is that the viewing room in the Cambridge gallery inspired the colour for the walls in our private dining room here at Midsummer House! We're so pleased with the finished look, it's a stunning space."

"I am absolutely blown away by what the Castle Fine Art team have curated for the restaurant. The pieces are exciting, thought-provoking and have really added a new dimension."
