Fodor's Review

The name says it all—Somerset is a genuine country cottage, and many locals consider it one of the region's best restaurants. A smaller lunch menu (Wednesday to Friday) serves the same menu as in the evening, just with smaller portions. For dinner the menu is split in two–-one includes signature dishes such as braised lamb shank with roasted garlic, olive and potato pie, oven-roasted duck, and vanilla-and-coconut-scented mash with orange sauce. The other menu changes weekly, incorporating fresh and seasonal produce. Somerset also sells some of the products they cook and hosts a regular cooking school.
