We stayed for 4 nights in April. The location is outstanding and a great base for visiting the area. We ate in the restaurant 3 nights and enjoyed every meal. The real quality of the Smugglers Inn lies in the staff. Every person went out of their way to ensure our stay was good. It is sad that the quality... More

Didn't stay here but had a beautiful meal. Second time we have been as we live in lancashire and we loved it so much last time we were in Dorset we decided to come back for our last evening meal. We were an hour's drive away so that tells you how much we love this place! Stunning location, fabulous food,... More

Nice, cosy environment and lovely location but I expect that's what's keeping this place busy as the food is nothing amazing. Don't get me wrong, I ate it. But I wouldn't be heading back here for a special occasion. Also, the gravy left a nasty greasy film in my mouth. Yuck.

7 of us stopped here for light lunch after coastal path walk. Attractive pub and friendly staff. Baguettes were doughy, dry and had meagre fillings - was told that they were to Company Specification (Hall and Woodhouse please note). Did not feel we had value for money.

Stayed for 2 nights in early March with our dogs. Bedroom was spacious, well equipped and very warm, only downside is the amount of noise from the neighbouring rooms. The dogs were welcome in all areas and were able to accompany us to breakfast. Staff were friendly, food was good if a little overpriced. Overall a nice place to stay... More

We called in to this venue last weekend on Sunday. On walking in we were faced by a rather brusque young lady asking if she could help but in a rather hostile way. When I walked towards the bar I was told that everything was waiter served and did we have a reservation. We were found a table and then... More

Just back from our usual annual 2 night stay and can't speak highly enough about the staff and facilities at the Smugglers. Food as always is good with a great selection of decent beers and a nice 'specials' board. The winner however is the staff and the location which makes a stay here a must if you like the best...

A quaint, cosy thatched pub on clifftop with breathtaking views out to Portland. A must visit if you're on holiday nearby. Rooms available as well. Stream running through which leads down to the beach.
