What a wonderful weekend myself, my partner and 17 month old daughter had at the Smugglers Rest. Really cannot fault this place in any way. Everything was great and nothing was too much trouble for the warm and extremely friendly family who run it. The rooms were spotlessly clean and reached above and beyond my expectations. We will definitely be... More

We were here for my birthday and my girlfriend had rang ahead and arranged for a cake and box of chocolates, which Brenda had wrapped and left on the table in our room!Great atmosphere here, real family...

All the staff at this family run pub and b&b made our stay so enjoyable, all very cheerful and welcoming. The food was also excellent. The rooms are dated, a little tatty in places but perfectly clean and very good value for money. Can't wait to go back next year. Top notch.

At Morthoe for the weekend and decided to pop in for a pint. No welcome and the atmosphere seemed really bizarre. Lots of family members in the bar area and we felt as though we had taken the wrong door and had ended up in someone's front room! Despite this, we decided to persevere and ordered 2 pints. My Tribute... More

We had the family room despite only being in a couple and the Room was very comfortable. Food was delicious and service was good with very friendly and welcoming staff, including George the dog :) would defiantly stay... More

Booked a room here for my parents, who stayed with their little dog Rosie. The room whilst simply furnished was clean, a very good size, with a huge en-suite bathroom, and even a little balcony on the front! A wonderful spot to watch the world go by... My parents stayed for a week whilst we were camping nearby, and they... More

We have just spent a weekend staying at the Smugglers Rest and have to say what a great time we had. We had a room on the top floor which was very generous in size and overlooked the post office opposite looking out across the fields of Morthoe, it had a big bay window and even had doors out onto...

A lovely bright clean and inspiring pub restaurant. Visited with family for a meal on a Wednesday night and this place was very busy. Booking is advisable to avoid disappointment. Very wide range menu and also specials board, starters, mains and desserts are all reasonably priced and lots of choices for everybody regardless of your taste. Staff very obliging and... More

My husband and i stumbled upon this pub after a gruelling day trekking. The bar man was lovely very friendly, we had the roast chicken and vegetables. The chicken was cooked absolutely perfect along with everything else! Very generous portions and absolutely delicious! Spent a couple of hours here playing pool, there is a talking parrot in the pub which... More
