Food reasonably priced with a good selection on the menu. The wine bar is a nice place to eat and also has a 'Snug' out the back across the court yard. We have used this for larger family meals. Its nicely decorated and cosy.

I haven't eaten Chicken Kiev for years. And this one was delicious. Harwich is filled with hidden gems: beautiful scenery, history and some great restaurants: this is one of them. Friendly staff, lovely food, big portions! And a nice atmosphere.

We like it at Sams as its informal and really pleasant. Staff are friendly and the food is pretty nice too. The building is full of character and we will be visiting Sams again in the not too distant future.
