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

From our first date we knew we wanted to share this wonderful place with our family and friends as our wedding reception. Mike and the team welcomed and helped us from the start. Food is always amazing and service is always friendly. We were able to decorate the room how we wanted it. And everyone felt relaxed and full. Nothing... More

We had our first date at the Smugglers and decided we would like our wedding reception there. From start to finish Mike, Gary and chef Mike as well as the other staff members bent over backwards to meet our every whim. Nothing was too much trouble and they gave us the wedding we dreamed of. All our guests commented on... More

We popped in after a long walk, and were met by extremely helpful staff behind the bar, who simply couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasurable. We ordered food - with their friendly input - and had a superb lunch (along with a couple of rather fine drinks), and left feeling very happy and properly satiated: it was the... More

We stayed for 2 nights in November. The pub was lovely and cosy with great food, the rooms we're wonderful and comfy and all the staff were so friendly, The location is perfect for visiting Weymouth and Portland and right on the coast path for walking, Can't recommend it highly enough

We visited the Smugglers inn today 16/11/14 after hearing good reviews. We were very disappointed, the food was terrible. My husband & mother in law had the roast beef & said it was chewy, thinly cut, overcooked, fatty & not much of it. I had the burger which was good. My 2 children had the kids burgers & they refused... More

My family lunched at The Smugglers in a Sunday while on holiday in Dorset. It was packed but the staff were very helpful in getting us seated. Wide menu choice, with kids meals, all good quality and well priced. We even went back for dinner in the same week!
