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...

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...

Went here today for lunch expecting good things but unfortunately it was quite dissapointing. I have to say up front that the staff were very polite and friendly, no issues there and the restaurant itself was very nice, but the food was not worth the price paid especially the dessert which was meant to be a steamed pudding but must...
