My partner and I decided to arrive there 1h before the time our table was booked for. We went for a walk along the cliffs located behind the smuggler's inn and it was absolutely stunning. Fields, sea, sunset and bits of forest... After such a nice walk we went back to the pub for a pint and dinner. The beer... More

Visited here three times during our week's holiday to Osmington Holiday Park. First visit a little disappointing as the Sunday beef was poor but our comments were dealt with without argument and the cost deducted from the final bill. Two further visits were very good. I especially enjoyed the Thai Jungle Curry. Friendly staff and very prompt service. Work currently... More

We visited this pub with 2 friends and our dogs on a Sunday. It's in a great spot with good walks close by with great views. We got a nice welcome and were shown to a table that gave the dogs plenty of room to crash out. Service is good.Staff very polite. Food was a bit disappointing as I'd heard... More

I described this as a beautiful pub but dont go for food previously. I am glad to say that Mike the manager now has dumped the Hall & Woodhouse menu and created a really great, tasty well cooked menu full of local produce. The pub is equally as beautiful and welcoming and the staff really friendly and helpful. The breakfasts... More

Welcoming friendly pub with excellent food. Great place for Sunday lunch after a walk to Ringstead Bay! There is lots of work being done at the moment so it's not such a pretty setting but when it's all finished it will be great. Well worth a visit.

Visited here a couple of times while staying in Weymouth and would recommend to anyone. Staff friendly and polite and the food was very good. Only a short walk to a secluded beach, set off the main road a few miles out of Weymouth so look out for the sign. Some major landscaping work going on at the moment, but... More

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
