Dinner Bed and Breakfast

Have you ever considered staying at a Guest House where breakfast and dinner are included? B&Bs offering half board are in decline which is a great shame. We like to give our guests the option of dining with us so that they don’t have to drive around finding somewhere serving good food; they don’t have to worry about booking a table, as not booking can result in finding no availability so they have to drive around unfamiliar places to find somewhere else. They can’t share a good bottle of wine with their companions to add to the enjoyment of dinner and the whole dining experience.

Dinner, bed and breakfast here at Sampson Barton is a wonderful occasion, so our many returning guests tell us – well the food in general, but especially dinner with breakfast running a close second; I feel a huge debate coming on! We are in the most fortunate position of being surrounded by great produce. Everything we source for dinner is grown or produced in the West Country, renowned for it’s culinary delights.

Neil has been creating fantastic dishes for the past ten years and certainly knows a thing or two about what our guests want to see on our breakfast and dinner menus. Add to this the dining room, with exposed wooden beams and large inglenook, huge stocks of locally sourced produce and you have the perfect blend of great food and cosy, rustic charm.

We have been awarded AA 4stars not only for the bed and breakfast but also for dinner, for the past 5 years, in recognition of a very special high quality dinner, with emphasis on freshly prepared local ingredients,

We have several different dinner, bed and breakfast packages which we offer throughout the year. Each season provides a totally different experience, not just with how you will spend your days out, but also when returning for dinner. Winter could have you tucking into a bowlful of Neil’s hearty, curried parsnip soup whereby Spring could see you coming back from a walk along the coastal path for baked haddock fillet with a cherry tomato consommé. Neil has a unique style of cooking – self taught over the past ten years, he creates menus with crowd-pleasing dishes you would expect to find in your favourite local, but then blends them with perfectly complementing ingredients that you might not necessarily put together yourself to produce top-notch nosh that would certainly not be out of place in a fine dining restaurant.
