About Samphire Newquay
Uncover a fresh take on seaside dining. Our talented culinary team is driven by a passion for cuisine that is as wholesome as it is flavourful. Led by Executive Chef Christopher Archambault and inspired by the dramatic Cornish coastline, we create exciting dishes with undeniable plate-appeal.
The rosette-awarded Samphire Restaurant is perfect if your looking sophistication and style. Wine, dine and relax amidst the epic seascapes and breath-taking sunsets.
Menus change with the seasons, reflecting the best local produce from our small group of trusted suppliers. Samphire is a plant of the parsley family that grows on the rocky shoreline just below our Hotel. Our brigade of chefs forage it by hand, ensuring only the freshest is selected.
The service was absolutely delightful. Our waiter (gentleman with a beard, sorry didn't get his name) was very attentive without being over the top and annoying. On night two, he remembered that it was my friend's birthday - there was a balloon on the table and the whole waiting staff sung happy birthday when we got served desert. The food was exceptional and there was enough variety for even the fussiest of eater (i.e. me). Over all I was extremely happy with the restaurant and the hotel as a whole and would very easily recommend it to anyone.
Fantastic as always.
Impeccable service, great atmosphere and tasty food which was surprisingly great value for money too. Perfect.
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere in the restaurant and bar areas. Very attentive and nothing was too much to ask when I explained it was my girlfriends birthday on booking. Food was faultless although a little expensive for the portion sizes but I suppose that is what to expect for high quality and superb service. We will definitely be back on our next visit to the area.
We have dined here on several occasions. It is always a real treat. Wonderfully different menu. Our complements to the chefs. And the service in the restaurant is perfect.
The food was excellent but sometimes could have been hotter especially the buffet breakfast. A microwave at breakfast would help. Drinks were very expensive.
Great food, lovely attentive staff, wine not cheap.
Excellent service, excellent food, friendly caring staff which makes the perfect recipe.
Excellent food, friendly service. All round fabulous experience
we didn't use the Samphire for dinner because we didn't fancy anything on either menu. we did enjoy breakfast there though when the food and service was faultless. my scores are based purely on breakfast
We ate both Monday and Tuesday nights and the food service and wine was first class. Tuesday in particular was probably the best meal I have ever had. Presentation, taste and cooking: 11 out of 10.
Another excellent Sunday outing to the Samphire.
Excellent service, great staff, fabulous music, wonderful views, comfortable atmosphere and delicious food too. What more could you ask for? Thank you to all at the Headland!
Sunday Lunch - yummy Thank You Team
Great night and a lovely meal
Very nice hotel and restaurant .
Always a joy to visit.
This review covers dinners from Thursday 16 Nov 2017 to Saturday 18 Nov 2017 when my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a few more days at The Headland this year to celebrate her birthday. Congratulations to the Executive Chef on his varied and interesting choice of menu and to Nicola and the whole team for their friendly and efficient service.
Another great meal at the Samphire. Excellent value all round and particular thanks to the ever friendly staff.
Be nice to be able to see outside form the restaurant (no windows), and the wine waiter (Xavier) came across as rude as he didn't say goodbye or thank you when we did repeatedly as we were getting up from the table to leave (he also needs to start using deodorant). Lobster starter was a bit mean but the rest of the food was fab.
Fantastic service, excellent food and happy staff :)
All very enjoyable thank you
I think you were a bit stuck for staff with a wedding on at the same time it took nearly 30 minutes plus between courses
