Judges were looking for restaurants that offer extraordinary service and delicious food to create a unique dining experience.
The Celebration of Sussex Life Awards are designed to champion, highlight and showcase our outstanding food, drink and hospitality industry. From local producers and suppliers to small farming businesses, restaurants, chefs, pubs and hoteliers, all those shortlisted for awards care about the countryside and the future of our region. The companies featured were nominated by our wonderful readers before being visited or interviewed to determine a worthy winner by our handpicked panel of high-profile judges.
What the judges said: Samphire is a very exciting restaurant with tremendous atmosphere and character. The food was phenomenal, fresh, locally sourced, excellent flavours. The environment was lovely, managing to capture a beach hut feel and yet still be sophisticated and luxurious. I could tell that all the customers were happy, the staff were very helpful and attentive. In addition, I think Samphire brings in excellent business to East Wittering. Samphire captures the essence of Coastal Sussex and I would whole-heartedly recommend it to all Sussex Life readers and I fully intend on becoming a regular visitor.
Highly commended: The Leconfield
Highly commended: Jeremy’s Restaurant
