Just a really nice and simple breakfast. The room lends itself very well for an early morning food bite and the breakfast was scrumptious. Lovely coffee too. The right place to go for a good value experience.

Called in mid cycle wander for a brunch refuel. Cool interior and warm welcome. Both enjoyed a very tasty scrambled egg/toast and poached egg/avacado/toast. With good coffees. All very good. Definitely come back for more.

Enjoyed a night out with friends in Whitstable. Had read about the Samphire on TripAdvisor and also had it recommended as the 'place to eat' by a sommelier friend. It certainly didn't disappoint, great food and great service. Book in advance mind as seemingly always...More

Hi, I'm afraid that as we are such a small restaurant, it isn't practical for us to accept dogs. Kind regards, Caroline
