Beefeater – The Somerford

When my husband worked for Bathstore he was over the road from The Somerford in Christchurch and we would often head over to meet him after work and go for a bite to eat in there. Hubby left Bathstore over 5 years ago and we have not been back since, so when we were invited to review the new menus we decided we wanted to visit this Beefeater Restaurant again.
