A true Jersey institution

Step back into the splendour and excitement of the Victorian era in the newly refurbished Tides Restaurant and Voyager Curiosity Lounge Bar at the Somerville Hotel in St Aubin

Welcome to the once home of Mr J.W. Chapman. Serial-entrepreneur, philanthropist, explorer, bon-vivant, collector of curiosities, occasional rapscallion, persistent socialite, classic eccentric and original builder and proprietor of the hotel from 1881 to 1934.

Mr J.W. Chapman had a refined palate and expensive tastes with a penchant for fine food, fine wine, and fine company which drove him to import the best libations the world could offer.

He was a born entertainer who loved to have fun, hosting the naughty and noble from across the world with celebrations that would last long into the night and sometimes long into the following day.

Here, we pay homage to his love of feast and festivity and the splendiferous Victorian heritage of this magnificent building in celebrating an exciting time of travel, exploration, invention and all things British with the finest food and libations the world has to offer.

Whether for a drink, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, whether for a fun-filled evening or function for 50, ‘with undisturbed sea views for 40 miles’, Tides Restaurant and Voyager Curiosity Lounge Bar in St Aubin will be on your list of must things to do while in Jersey.

Tides Restaurant is re-opening indoors on the 12th of June 2020 under strict Hygiene and Physical distancing policies. Please read and understand our policies below.
