The Samphire: award-winning restaurant

Located above the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, The Samphire offers two Rosette-awarded, modern dining in a classic space, and boasts some of the best sea and sunset views in Cornwall. Samphire takes its name from the abundant coastal greenery that surrounds The Headland and often features on the menu along with various other wild-harvested foliage. Menus change with the seasons, reflecting only the best produce that’s sourced from trusted local suppliers.

You may find yourself gazing out upon a wild Atlantic squall, dolphins frolicking in the surf or a dead calm Headland sunset of myriad hues where you might spot the elusive green flash.
