Local restaurateur Sam Metcalfe's relaxed bistro near the seafront serves up a menu of British & European classics made with local, seasonal ingredients. The long dining room has a comfortable feel thanks to the ambient lighting, fresh flowers & pictures of Sam & his family on the walls. Daily blackboard specials might include baked figs & Cashel Blue cheese wrapped in Parma ham, while the main menu could feature Sussex lamb with a spiced aubergine salad. Sam’s is emphatically family-friendly, with a children’s menu & baby-changing facilities on offer. The eclectic wine list takes in Old & New World selections, along with a healthy selection of sparkling & sweet tipples. Try a glass of the Botrytis Riesling from Tasmania with a slice of treacle tart for a lush finale. Weekend brunch is a major attraction.
