Staff went out of their way to accommodate us and a group of other friends joining us for dinner (from the area). Food excellent quality and value for money.

Called in for an evening meal on spec. Greeted with a great smile and small talk,then showed to our table and presented with the menus and our drinks. Our starters arrived within ten minutes consisting of wild mushroom terrine and a bowl of "local" asparagus soup, hot but rather bland. The two mains consisted of mixed grill which was large... 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.

The cheesecake was nothing short of awful and for the first time in my life I could not eat a dessert. Service was ok but they obviously run the place using youngsters who dont have much of a...

Menu changes seasonally and is always very interesting and inventive. The quality of the food is excellent. at £26-50 for 3 courses I can only describe the experience as FINE... More

Comfortable yet stylish surrounding, very friendly and informative service, and a good meal to boot. My wife and I skipped starters and went straight to the entrees, she with the belly port in Welsh cider and me with the trout (I forget all the details but it was delicious, albeit a bit of a small portion), with ice cream and...
