Great service, food lovely, lovely fires and surroundings We ended up going more than once during our short stay in Dorset. There are lots of building works going on just now but even with all of that it's still a great great place and can imagine it will be packed out in the summer months.

What a fantastic stay we had, the rooms were faultless, really fresh feeling & lovely & clean. The shower was amazing after an 8 mile walk. We had dinner in the pub & my sister who is a veggie & also a bit fussy loved her homity pie and veg. We all had pies too and my niece swears she... More

Ok, some major building works going on at the moment, which spoils it a little right now, but this place when finished will be truly a hidden gem. Not too sure when the works will finish, but If you are in the area, it is well worth heading off the beaten track to visit.

We visited this pub for Easter Sunday lunch, there were 8 of us. When I booked the lady warned us that they would be very busy and we may have to wait a little longer than usual. We had a brilliant meal, served within good time. Food was lovely and we were all really impressed. Next time we are in... More

We visited the Smugglers Inn for dinner on Easter Sunday, we initially booked a table for 8pm but we were delayed, this was accommodated with easy after we called ahead, this was surpassed with a warm welcome. Our waitress was very professional and attentive without feeling of us being rushed. The food was lovely.... Well presented and very tasty. We... More

Visited as a family of 4 at 6pm on Good Friday. Despite being absolutely packed, the service from start to finish was first rate - friendly, efficient and attentive. The menu is broad, with a good range of specials. The beer is very well kept. The prices are reasonable. The pub itself is located near to the sea front, and... More

I was whisked away for a last minute stay here by my boyfriend on Monday 30th March and told we were even taking the dog! To my surprise we arrived at a beautiful setting of the Jurassic coast which was simply stunning. However, there was building work happening outside the venue due to the river bursting it's banks so background... More

We were warned in advance that ground works and a new kitchen being fitted to the Smugglers Inn meant no food, but we would be welcome to order in an evening meal. Landlords Mike and Barbie went a lot further than that and when we arrived on Saturday, Mike made us a pasty and also had a selection of soups... More

although there was a lot of building work going on ( we had been warned) we had a very pleasant stay. Staff were very helpful and very accommodating. Rooms were fine but a little too warm at night as you can't really open the windows much. Bed was very comfortable thankfully as we did a lot of walking. Food was... More

Have just spent a long weekend of walking the south west coast path with friends and this was the perfect base for our trip. Despite major environmental and structural works ongoing outside, this didn't detract from what was a wonderful break. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. In the pub itself, the staff couldn't have been more accommodating,... More
