Nice

The food was nice, and we would return. Loved how the food was presented and kept warm until the others food came out. The only critism I would have is that staff would be watching either in a corner or walking around watching you which we found off putting. I know they were only like this to... read more

Visited with friends unfortunately had to wait over an hour for our high tea to be served we were given numerous cups of tea/coffee whilst waiting this definitely took the shine off the food when it finally arrived. The bread used for the sandwiches was of poor quality and hardly any fillings, the cakes and scones were lovely. Having visited... More

During the course of 6 nights stay at the hotel we ate at the restaurant twice. On both occasions the food was excellent. We had three courses both times and for £26.50 this was great VFM. having read other reviews we can relate to the one that said the menu was limited; we do not know how often the menu... More

We had special lunch on July 7th2015 to celebrate two birthdays and a 49th anniversary and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the ambience relaxing with wonderful views from the restaurant windows. The staff were friendly, courteous and efficient and provided us with a memorable lunch.

Booked in for four nights at the Stradey hotel which was fine.Can not say the same about Samphires. Not a very inspiring menu which if you stayed for a week would be hard pressed for choice. Also the main course (mixed grill)was not cooked as it should be.Struggled with the next two nights and came home a day early.

My husband and I visited the restaurant for our first wedding anniversary and I have absolutely no complaints, the service was excellent, the food was outstanding, all the flavours were perfect and the lamb was divine. Thank you :-)

Have had several vintage teas here and never been disappointed. Service and food is excellent. I also attend their monthly lunch club for £16.50 a three course meal to be recommended.

The food is delicious, from the starter, through to the sweet(the chef carries out taste sessions from time to time, with staff,to try new things on the menu, what works & doesn't) All food is locally sourced, where possible, & there is a very good wine menu as well. you must try the full Welsh breakfast as well..recommended! My compliments... More

The food was locally sourced. Price range was as you'd expect for the food received. Service was excellent.

I had heard and read great things about Sapphires Restaurant but we were really disappointed. I had booked for my partners Birthday treat, we had booked in advance and had looked at the menu online. When we arrived, although the greeting and service was great (couldn't fault that), we were given a very stripped down menu, a choice of three... More
