Fantastic food; we decided to do the starters tapas style as we couldn't make our minds up

Best meal I’ve had in a long time! I had the short rib which was brilliant and my wife had the Cod special which again was lovely! Would highly recommend the Malbec too. Will be coming back!!

We were a group of six girlfriends celebrating our 40th for the weekend and had the most fantastic meal at Samphire on Saturday night. The food was outstanding and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. Highly recommend and would return in a flash if I was more local!

Lovely food, great choice of wines. Unfortunately during our meal I didn't feel very well at all which meant we left pretty much straight after our mains - however the food was delicious and we'll be back!

Had a lovely lunch in this pleasant, stylish bistro. Enjoyed all three courses. Main course fish pie was tasty and substantial. Wouldn’t hesitate to return.

We had a wonderful lunch here and the staff and atmosphere could not have been more welcoming and friendly. They were more than happy to cater for a range of dietary requirements (vegan, coeliac) and our meal was delicious.

We arrived before our allocated time for lunch, no problem! And we were fortunate enough to be able to eat from the Brunch menu. Delicious!

4 of us booked for a wedding anniversary celebration. We'd been put off by some of the Tripadvisor comments so decided to go for the lunch set menu and, apart from the fish pie having a bit too much potato couldn't fault the food or service. The price for food & wine was very reasonable ad we'll definitely be back for supper and brunch. Don't understand the very differing comments left by other customers.

We had a great lunch so much so we booked for dinner a couple of days later and had an equally great dinner. Great find and we will use again next time we are down.
