Perfect end to the day with a meal in this pub. Full of locals which is always a good sign. Ate from the specials menu and could not fault it at all. Well worth a visit and good food and service.

We went for Sunday Lunch while on holiday. Four of us all had roast dinners and it was lovely. Staff were very helpful and would definately go again.

We stayed in a local camp site and visited this amazing pub. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and brilliant location. The other customers were all nice. Great garden. I tried the mussels and they blew my mind, so incredibly tasty, absolute must if you pay this awesome place a visit. I cant wait to go back just for the mussels!

I have been going to the Smugglers in for many years, i have never once had a bad meal there. Lately I decided on a radical diet change and became a vegetarian, still relatively new to veggie cuisine i took the plunge and ordered the Spicy Bean Burger, and my risk paid off! Made by hand, perfectly seasoned and the... More

Three of us went for lunch as recommended by the ferry boat driver but it was a big mistake The food is very poor & the pub looked nice from the outside but not great inside. The service is ok

Managed to get a table it is obviously a busy place as they were nearly all reserved. Had cheesy garlic mushrooms to start which were very good but a chunk of crusty bread would have gone down so much better than a slice of white! Smugglers chicken for main was OK, partners liver and bacon was much better, his Caesar... More

Went out for an evening meal at the smugglers inn. Although I ordered vegetarian lasagne I was presented with a meat one. The owner was quick to exchange and apologized profusely and offered us a free coffee. My husband had the rump steak and the meal was enjoyable. Staff were very friendly. A very busy place so if you are... More

Visited this pub whilst on a visit to the area. Wanted to order the nachos and asked if it would be possible to add chilli - the lady serving behind the bar who was serving the entire bar asked the kitchen and they said that everything came "portioned" and an extra portion would be £3!!! All I wanted was a... More

I have just returned to my holiday apartment after taking my wife for a meal at The Smugglers' having been recommended by other visitors and, I might say many people on Tripadvisor. My first impressions of the place were that the staff were off-hand and that it was not particularly welcoming. We ordered food and drinks and were sent to... More
