“Samphire is a bistro whose black and gold Art Deco exterior twinkles like a gem at the intersection of the High Street and Harbour Street. As everywhere in the town, it keeps things local with day-boat specials and the likes of Kentish lamb with rosehip harissa. The chunky haddock fillet in our chowder was perfectly cooked, perched on a bed of sea-fresh mussels and steamed chard in a pool of delicate, boozy cream sauce.”
