Our View

The Rosette award for this establishment has been suspended due to a change of chef and reassessment will take place in due course. Gorgeously done out with clean art deco-style lines worthy of a 1920s ocean liner, Samphire looks stunning with its wooden floors, plush blue velvet banquettes and mustard yellow leather seating. The place will sort you out all day from breakfast, through brunch and onwards to killer evening cocktails in a lively ground-floor bar, a see-and-be-seen terrace on the street out front and, up on the roof, a garden terrace for those balmy Jersey days.

Sophisticated dining in a sleek setting

About The area

Discover Jersey

Jersey is the largest of the Channels Islands, but at 45.5 square miles (118 sq km) it’s still only about a third of the size of the Isle of Wight. Its human history goes back to the Neolithic period, as many megalithic tombs (knowm as dolmens) demonstrate. However, the most important history discovery of recent years was the unearthing of tens of thousands of Roman and Celtic coins in 2012. Two men with metal detectors uncovered this amazing find, and the coins are now on display at La Hougue Bie Museum. This location itself is quite a historical wonder; well-preserved Neolithic passage graves that were used for religious ceremonies around 3500 BC.

Other historic attractions on Jersey include the War Tunnels and other remnants of the German occupation, which lasted from 1940 to 1945. Liberation Day is celebrated on May 9th as Jersey’s National Day, and is an important part of the island’s calendar. Apart from its history, Jersey is well known for its potatoes and rich, creamy milk. Holiday visitors will also find plenty of opportunities for seaside pleasures, as the island has many bays and beaches.
