Imagine walking into someone’s backyard party, complete with picnic tables and sunny striped umbrellas, a ping-pong table and a pool table, and even with your very own mix of DJs spinning tracks old-school style.
When the sun goes down, revellers can party and dance the night away under a sea of festival lights and starry skies.
Open from midday Wednesday to Sunday, the kitchen is dishing up loads of pub favourites and classics that go down a treat.
Looking for something not too heavy, think about getting a mix of share plates from the Lite Bites menu – choose from Duck or Vegan Spring Rolls (served with hoisin sauce, plus sauce on a bed of mesculun); Tempura Prawn Buns (with sriracha mayo & baby cos in a milk bun); and Texan BBQ Corn Ribs (grilled and showered in butter, parmesan, smoked chipotle mayo, lime, coriander and parsley).
Still from the Lite Bites, the colourful Taco Trio (with your choice of battered fish, southern fried chicken or roasted cauliflower) and Mushroom Arancini (perfectly crumbed, served on dollop of basil mayo and dusted with parmesan snow) are also amongst the offerings, as well as Crispy Buffalo Wings, Szechauan, Citrus Salt and Pepper Calamari, and more, so make sure you wear your stretchy pants.
After something a little more substantial, there’s burgers (Summa House Burger, Cheeseburger, Nashville Fried Chicken Burger, The Peacemaker [V]), salads (Baked Pear Salad, Mediterranean Salad) and mains for you to choose from (think Chicken Parmigiana, Beer-battered or Pan-fried Barramundi, Lamb Cutlets, and Porterhouse or Rump Steak, with sides and sauces available too).
The Summa House ‘Tastes of Summa’ drinks menu boasts a delicious array of signature cocktails, plus a mix of eight craft brews, seltzers and ginger beer on tap. Heavily featured on the wine list is Brisbane’s own Gerler Wines with, in fact, a special Summa House labelling.
