Description: 25 years of Sams in Fowey has now enabled us to bring all our experience, fun, ambience, staff and fantastic locally sourced produce to create something truly unique in the old Fowey Lifeboat House here on the waters edge overlooking the bay.3 Ingredients that a successful restaurant needs are "Good Staff, Good Food, Good Ambience" and Sams on the Beach has all 3 in abundance!Enjoy!And the views not that bad too!Sam Sixton

Great seafood, friendly and efficient service. You must Book a table early as it is very popular and becomes very busy.

We have been going to this place since it opened and have had some really special days and nights there. Our place is a few miles away so we always book a Spot on Taxi to take us there and pick us up, having booked a table first! The team there are great, always make you welcome and the food is simply awesome.. The view as Sam says ain't bad either....the ideal night...arrive a bit early, pop in to Sams to tell them that your next door at the pub and then they'll come over and let you know when your table is ready...have a good feed washed down with a carafe of wine..and some Led Zeppelin if you ask..then have a late night walk on the beach and into the pub again for the last pint before your spotty taxi arrives to take you home....what could be better!

I sort of don't want to write this review as I'd love to be sure of a table each time I visited and I can imagine it fills up fast. Beautiful spot, right on the beach. Car park 200 yards away. Located on a tiny hamlet with less than a dozen buildings at the end of a lane, its the perfect spot. Seafood makes up a large portion of the menu along with pizzas. Took grandparents in their 80's, my parents and I and all found dishes we loved.

I dined here with my wife and was thoroughly impressed with all of the food. The scallops with black pudding is the best scallop starter I have ever had and the Thai mussels are something out of this world.

Great friendly service and reasonable prices for the quality.

To top it off the great beach side location and relaxed atmosphere add to the experience.

Would highly recommend.
