My absolute favourite place to eat. Service is really friendly and efficient and food is superb - really interesting combinations in inventive dishes, always perfectly cooked. Can't wait for my next visit!
Lovely lunch from the great set menu
Delicious food. Great service. Can't ask for more.
Lovely relaxed restaurant. Great brunch menu. Service was slow - we waited 45 mins for food and no explanation or apology given
Very enjoyable meal as usual. Frienfly staff.

Excellent service and very yummy food.
Amazing food, can’t recommend Samphire highly enough. We will definitely be returning.
Fantastic food and wonderful service as always. Thank you for a lovely evening x
Belated Valentine’s Meal - all aspects excellent , as per usual ! Thank you !
Very limited choice for vegetarian lunch - but I did enjoyed what I had. Delightful dessert, but Better tasting coffee would be good!
Great lunch as always
Website very good but doesn’t allow for communication which was zero on two occasions. Service in restaurant very good, freshness and presentation of oysters excellent, ability to adapt set menu appreciated. Chard and Kale not a veg I would choose but full marks for attempting something healthy and different.Wine prices high for a muscadet but well chosen. Desserts a triumph.
Great food, terrific service, lovely vibe
Outstanding in every aspect.
Very nice place indeed, good atmosphere, friendly staff and the food speaks for itself.
Amazing food and service as always
Wonderful staff. The lady and gent who let us have our little newborn in the restaurant to dine with us made us feel so welcome and were incredible friendly and attentive. Just marvellous. X
It was our first time, me and my wife had brunch. I can honestly say it was the best breakfast we had ever eaten. The food was out of this world, the service was bang on !!!!! And we were made to feel so welcome and appricieated. We will be back as soon as we can for dinner. Loved it!!!!!!!
Could not fault. Amazing food and a lovely warm environment on a freezing cold day!!
The food is good and all the things are right, but something does not quite click. Have you got new operators, ownership, management? Maybe you have to decide if you are a neat little cafe or a bistro or 'bouchon'. There are plenty of coffee shops in the town. I do not envy you getting the traffic necessary to make the business viable. Or maybe our choice of a Friday lunch time in January is not a fair test of your offering. Will I come again? Yes, but do not bother buying in your puddings!
