Food

Samson burger

The Samson is owned by three farmers and we understand that great food starts with quality ingredients. We draw on the wealth of local fine food producers and retailers and supplement those with beef, lamb, salads, herbs and some seasonal vegetables from our own farms.This gives our talented chefs the building blocks to make their delicious dishes.

All our chefs have been with us for several years (two from when we first opened the kitchen in 2013) and together we have produced a menu that combines the best of traditional pub food with a careful, modern twist.
