September was apples and each course included apples in one way or another. Even the table decoration was fresh apples with night lights! Next month is... More

Celebrated a family birthday at Samphires. Staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Food excellent on the whole. Menu varied and reasonably priced for a good quality restaurant One main course did not live up to expectation but this was swiftly changed to an alternative with no fuss and no additional cost. Would definitely visit again.

The quality of the food was first class. Staff were very accommodating, I said I was feeling a bit cold so she made sure we had a table in the corner. Service and surroundings are lovely.
