We were Smugglers Inn virgins until Tuesday 19th August when the 5 of us ate here. We booked a table on arrival and sat in the garden until the table was ready which was about half an hour. The Inn was very busy so we were amazed by this! Very cosy inside! We all ordered a main and the child... More

Been here on many occasions, every time it's been fantastic, the customer service is beyond excellent they just can't do enough to make sure your visit is the best it can be. I'm disabled and the help and support I recieve here is beyond reproach. I note some complain about the price of food, ok the food is pub grub... More

We were staying at the local campsite and this pub was nearest, within walking distance. Great views from carpark across the bay, however the inn itself was very disappointing. The inn is very busy and has unfortunately compromised on the quality of its food for the prices they charge. Toilets not very well maintained and overall quite dirty. Staff always... More

In my view shamelessly exploiting families 1 glass of wine 2 fruit shoots 1 pint, nearly £15!!! I genuinely thought a mistake had been made! Very picturesque but really not worth £15 a round. If you are willing to queue 20 minutes for a drink, this place will suit you

A lovely pub in a very pretty setting. The food was very tasty (especially the toffee apple pie) and the staff were exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Having walked there from Eweleaze campsite, the flush toilets were a particular highlight!

I was recently on holiday in the Osmington area with my family and we visited The Smuggler's Inn various times throughout the week. The location is picturesque, located right next to the beach and therefore sitting outside in the sun was lovely. The drinks at The Smuggler's Inn are very reasonably priced, pretty much what you would expect of any... More

Came here last night with friends and family for a pre dinner drink. This place never fails to impress me - where to start! The location is picturesque; in a wooded valley, just metres away from short cliffs leading to the beach. You get there by driving down a quaint country lane, surrounded by delightful Dorset countryside. The pub itself... More

On a recent camping trip we ended up here every evening! The staff are so friendly, the location is great - out of the wind, but still a great sun trap! There are plenty of dog bowls for filling up with water and our girls certainly had a great time meeting the local Dogs! Prices are a lot more expensive... More

Visited here for the third time and impressed again! Food was faultless and so was the service. Recommend this pub to anyone. Beautiful views over Weymouth bay from the car park and pub itself in a beautiful setting.

I can not fault any thing here, the room was lovely we stayed for three day and ate here every night . The food was tasty and there was lots of choice including avert good specials board. The service was second to none and we felt very welcome all the time. Can't wait to go back
