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

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!

Perhaps Ive been a bit unlucky - but on the last few occasions ive visited there's been a problem with either very slow service, wrong orders etc. Some of the service staff need to move a bit quicker and or more efficient. Management needs to spend some time observing what is actually is going on and correct it. Also if... More

We walked along the coastal path from Weymouth to here, we ordered a lite bite meal which was a tuna baguette with chips & salad it was massive, very nice only problem we had to walk back, think you should do option without chips. Overall a lovely historic pub.
