Our visit here was fabulous. The location is superb for exploring the Dorset coast. The rooms were lovely, beds extremely comfortable and a great breakfast. The staff were all very helpful. The restaurant was a busy Saturday night but the service was spot on. We will be back !

Visited after a previous poor dinner, it was great this time round. Burger was great and highly recommended with the blue vinney cheese. Pies are always full of meat and bursting with flavour. Great location and hopefully will look back to normal and refreshed once the works outside are complete. I look forward to returning, thank you.

Service : Nice getting upon entry and taken to table , menus and drinks were provided very promptly , waitress who took our orders was impressive as she didn't write them... More

The food tastes good but expect to wait for your food. There were not enough staff working for the amount of customers. Another bad thing is they would not let us sit at our reserved table despite the table having our name on it and it being empty. As we were a group of 8 it would have been better... More

We went out as a group of 8, we had booked a table which wasn't ready in time. We waited at bar which was making the area very over crowed. We were squeezed on to a 6 table which was uncomfortable with table legs in between your own legs. The food was slow coming out, the restaurant was very busy.... More

We stayed for a couple of nights at the Smugglers Inn and really enjoyed it. The room was a reasonable size with everything that you needed. The bed was firm and comfortable and I appreciated having a proper duvet. Everything was spotlessly clean. The Inn is dog-friendly and we had no problem taking ours. The food at the Inn was... More

Visited here on recommendation having walked 20 minutes from Ringstead. This is a fantastic pub close by the sea. Badger beer on tap and excellent food. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive. The added bonus is that the pub is dog friendly and allows them inside. We cannot recommend this pub more highly. It appears to be very popular...

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
