Allergens. Due to the way our food and drink is prepared it is not possible to guarantee the absence of allergens in our meals and drinks and we do not make a “free from” claim. Our allergen information only states allergens if they are an ingredient of a product. We do not include “may contain” information. Our menu descriptions do not include all ingredients. Full allergen information is available on request. Please contact us should you have any concerns.

Menu availability. All menu items are subject to availability. Any photography of our menus or other promotional materials are for representative purposes only. We reserve the right to change, amend or remove items without prior notice.

Deposits. In certain circumstances, such as a Booking for our Mother's Weekend, Father's Day, Festive meals, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Eve menus, we will usually require payment of a deposit for each adult in order to secure your Booking. We will let you know at the point of Booking how much deposit is required. Where a deposit is required, no Booking will be accepted or treated as confirmed until the deposit is paid. We reserve the right to cancel Bookings where deposits are unpaid. Deposits are redeemable against your bill on the day of your Booking. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Restaurant Closer: In certain circumstances, it is the hotel's decision to close the restaurant without prior notice.  We will use our reasonable endeavors to provide you with an alternative table in our Rainsford Bar with the same menus from the Samphire Restaurant. If we are unable to provide you with an alternative table for whatever reason, the booking will be cancelled and you will receive a full refund of any payment you have made in advance in relation to your restaurant booking.

If you have an allergy, please inform the hotel duty manager before ordering. You can check out our menus that identify the top 14 allergens and if your allergy is severe, please consider carefully whether you choose to dine with us. Whilst we have controls in our kitchen, please be aware that all of our food is prepared and cooked in the same kitchen, and so we cannot guarantee our items are completely allergen-free.
