If you value your spine do not go here until their seating has been inspected by a Health & Safety Inspector. The old cinema seat my 80 yr old husband was sitting on completely collapsed and the two young waitresses did not have the wit to pull out the table before trying to haul him up. The owner was not present and a request to speak to him on his return was denied. Beware of a complaint in this restaurant - no second spoon to share my husbans's pud for me!
Great main courses!

A casual visit on a Wednesday lunchtime. The menu was simple and on a blackboard. We had a superb Dover sole served with brown shrimps, new potatoes and a little salad. Cooking perfectly judged and utterly delicious. A simple fruit and ice cream pudding followed. A gently priced Albariño was the best accompaniment imaginable. A long walk along West Wittering beach was a lovely, but necessary, sequel.

Nicely cooked and served food. Friendly atmosphere. Non pretentious. Slightly let down by some oddities. We asked for bread and butter but were told that they do not serve this lunch time.
There were a choice of 3 deserts but only 1 could be had. They did not have coulis for Eaton mess, and run out of sticky pudding. It was only 1 pm. We ordered the only available crumble which was delicious.
Would I go there again? Definitely yes.
Prices reasonable.

Can't wait to return to Samphire! Whether it's a special occasion, treat on a Monday for locals night, or just a meal with friends, you will not be disappointed. The food is always excellent, from calamari to the blue cheese tart, sea bass to the steak, chocolate fondant to the cheese board, every one is a taste sensation. Wine list is small but perfectly formed - good selection from house to the serious Chablis, all at a reasonable price. The dining area is great, with simple, rustic, relaxed decor in tune with the location. Stacey your host is always attentive, and if you're facing the right way you can see the guys preparing your meal in the (semi) open kitchen. We have and will return again and again - try it, but don't tell everyone ; )
