Almost forgot about this place as been quite some time since I had visited Harwich and how pleased I was I hadn't. From booking over the phone to leaving, couldn't fault a thing. The room was spacious and spotless, the food, drink, service, staff and atmosphere were absolutely superb. The total price for everything that I paid upon departure was... More

Visited this wine bar/restaurant several times since my last review but have decided enough is enough! The food has gradually gone down hill and on my last two visits I have had a 'Thai' curry that tasted like it came from a jar - less than tasty and last week I had a chicken Kiev that was soggy & tasteless...

We had family visit from London (7 of us), a friend recommended Samuel Pepys, what a lovely place this is, the food was excellent, the staff very attentive (especially Kat), also nice to have local beers to choose from, great atmosphere, will certainly dine here more often.

Visited Samuel Pepys with our daughter and our two granddaughters aged 3 and 5. Food for the children ordered at the bar immediately we arrived asking that the children be served ahead of us to enable the food to cool a little for the hungry little ones. Didn't happen unfortunately, the food all arrived together, after at least 30 minutes... More

Stayed at the Samuel Pepys October 2013 with wife and two friends. We all liked it a lot. This is a really well run place with friendly and capable staff. Clean and quiet. Excellent and very popular restaurant. Highly recommended. David Spiller

Used to eat here a lot but now the food is very mediocre and they have music on a Saturday night which means that you cannot sit & chat. Used to frequent this place regularly but not any more, pity they changed a good thing.........
