Historic charm, picturesque settings & Victorian eccentricity

First opening its doors in 1881, an event in Tides at the Somerville is following in the footsteps of hundreds of thousands before you.

Nestled in the comfort of our beautifully refurbished restaurant, there’s a palpable sense of heritage when you enter through our doors. The building has an undeniable presence, and the kind of warmth that comes only from over a century of happiness and celebration. If the walls could talk they would probably sing but it’s probably a good thing they can’t!

Legend states the Louis Phillipe, “Compte de Paris » – then contender to the French Throne – used the Somerville as the perfect setting to welcome noble persons from Brittany & Normandy in the late 1800’s. In truth, little is known about that day, but we’d like to think it culminated in the same merriment and happiness as is seen every week to this day!
