A busy night but all food cooked to perfection without undue delay between courses. So we went again for Sunday lunch. Roast beef definitely cooked on the premises, lost count of... More

We tried this because it was two minutes walk from where we were staying, and they managed to fit us in on a busy Saturday night. The interior is clean and light, the staff cheerful and attentive. There was a good range of meat, fish and veggie options on the menu. We had the fresh crab and battered mushrooms to... More

Dropped in by chance and had a very, very good meal. Waiter was run off his feet as it was full but he was still very responsive to our needs. A good restaurant and recommend.

We ate lunch at Samphire - we chose the Prix Fixe Menu and it was perfect. The food was imaginative, tasty, very freshly cooked and the restaurant has an easy pleasant atmosphere with friendly service. The menu price included a glass of wine which made the 2 course menu excellent value considering the quality of the food and the surroundings.... More
