Tribute Somerset Premier is an English rugby union league which sits at the ninth level of league rugby union in England involving teams based in the county of Somerset as well as some teams based in Bristol. The league champions are automatically promoted to Tribute Western Counties North while the runners up play the runners up of Gloucester Premier for their place. Relegated teams drop into Somerset 1.

There are five divisions below this league - Somerset 1, Somerset 2 North, Somerset 2 South, Somerset 3 North and Somerset 3 South. These leagues mostly consist of 2nd, 3rd and 4th teams of clubs whose 1st XV plays at a higher level.
