The food was superb. We ordered from the set lunch menu. So much choice and food was beautifully prepared and flavoursome. Staff were very accommodating. We will definitely be visiting again.

While the food and drinks were nice the service was extremely slow - it took 20 minutes for us to get our bread and dip nibble dish and and almost and hour for the food to arrive after that. Considering the prices were more expensive than average London prices, we expected much better.

The food was nice but it was not a roast dinner, it was just meat with a couple of vegetables and it was extremely over priced. We felt ripped off and would not go back! The staff were nice and attentive!

Excellent food and hospitality. We had a lovely window table and were made to feel very welcome. The food was excellent, not too fussy but using some great ingredients that makes the food special. The desert menu complemented the mains and starters, and we came away very content.

We had a great meal at Samphire! The oysters and my mussel starter were both very good and our pork and crab mains were fabulous. The crab special was particular good, a different way of having crab which made a lovely change. Kids meals went down very well too! Staff were very friendly.

Lovely restaurant with great food and a relaxed atmosphere. We were running late for our table book due to traffic problems and we contacted Samphire who kindly agreed to delay our booking or an hour which took the pressure off and allowed to to arrive safely and enjoy our lunch. Much appreciated. Would definitely recommend.

I had brunch here - Eggs Benedict and a Latte. Both were good and reasonably priced. I liked the atmosphere of the restaurant and will be back for lunch / dinner at some point in the future.
