The Samphire: award-winning Fistral Beach restaurant

Located above the stunning Fistral Beach, our Samphire Restaurant offers two Rosette-awarded, modern fine 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.

Whether you find yourself gazing out upon a wild Atlantic squall or a dead calm Headland sunset of myriad hues, The Samphire is the perfect antidote to our fast-paced lives with its informal private feel amid an airy room of traditional values. Discover unique and flavoursome Cornish-inspired dishes in this relaxed yet sophisticated setting overlooking a timeless Cornish vista.

*Please note that our menus rotate every three days.
