Had a really lovely meal with family here. They do a fantastic lunch deal where you can choose from a pizza, ciabatta or salad with a drink for about £7. The service was great and the staff were helpful and friendly. Would definitely go again.

Situated near the Clifton Suspension bridge this is a friendly smart gastropub. There was a lunchtime special of toasted ciabatta, fries, salad and medium glass of wine and beer for £9.95. An absolute bargain and delicious. Highly recommended.

Very nice bar & kitchen in the classiest part of Bristol. Lots of quality competition in the area but this place is as good as any. Prices what would be expected in this location but not ridiculous.

We ducked in here for a very early dinner on Saturday evening before a concert half expecting the kitchen not to be open yet. But it was... We really weren't expecting anything more than an average pub snack, but a quick glance at the menu...More

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!
