Food reasonably priced with a good selection on the menu. The wine bar is a nice place to eat and also has a 'Snug' out the back across the court yard. We have used this for larger family meals. Its nicely decorated and cosy.

A delightful bistro style pub/wine bar. Whether you wish to dine extravagantly, eat just a snack or just relax with a drink this is a nice place to visit. Church Street is one of the many quiet back streets of Harwich, a delightful historic town. There are several places to eat and drink in the town and I would certainly... More

We like it at Sams as its informal and really pleasant. Staff are friendly and the food is pretty nice too. The building is full of character and we will be visiting Sams again in the not too distant future.

Cosy, character, old pub building, good atmosphere, good food and the fact that you can now book is a bonus during busy periods. Very popular with locals and visiting yachtsmen. Always a good bet
