This was our second visit to Somerset House for Sunday dinner. A beautiful lunch, plenty of choice but I particularly recommend the beef or the lamb. Fabulous cauliflower cheese and they are happy to give you a jug of extra gravy!

My sister and I went to Somerset house today for the first time to try their Sunday roast. I ordered the beef- it was absolutely awful. The beef looked like a white wobbling blob on fat on the plate, completely inedible. The gravy had white...More
