nice interior with good food

I liked the layout of the pub with plenty of room, if going in the evening there is plenty of parking space at the inn with the carpark next door free after 6 acting as an overflow. The beer is well kept and the food was really enjoyable , I had a nice lasagne with proper chip's

We have eaten here a few times now and the food had always been pretty good. It is an unpretentious pub and also serves decent beers and wines! Menu has a good choice and variety!

We come to this area quite often and we were recommended this place however am struggling to see why. We were seated at a very dirty table, the cider tasted watery, we were not told the items that were unavailable so took ages to order. The food was very below standard. Everything tasted reheated, the vegetables were dry and Luke... More

My wife and I went to this pub whilst on a house hunting trip in the locality. It was a Sunday and were looking for somewhere to lunch. We very nearly didn't go in because from the outside, this pub is in serious need of a lick of paint. The external rendering was dirty with rust stains from hanging basket... More

My "no fuss" fish & chips dinner was excellent. My wife really enjoyed the chicken and bacon pie too. The food was all served hot and the service was friendly and quick. All this and real ales! Recommended.

We called at the Smugglers' for a pub lunch before we walked along the seashore today. The menu is very comprehensive with plenty of traditional choices at very comprehensive prices. The portions are generous and the food very well cooked and served piping hot. We will return!

Lovely atmosphere and brilliant food. Very friendly service would not hesitate to return here. Might be a good idea to book as it gets very busy.

We reserved a table and this proved to be a great idea. The food was delivered very quickly after ordering. The bar staff were very helpful and happy in their work. The food was really nice, well balanced and good portions.

We had a really nice lunch and Sunday roast in the smugglers inn. It's a child and dog friendly pub. Would definitely go again.

Nice warm pub with friendly staff but food is average at best. I had the chilli which just tasted of chilli powder and little else. The steak looked greasy and the chips on both of my dining partners plates were undercooked. Nice, fresh bread with the starter. Pub smelt of bleach but toilets were clean, a good sign for me.,...
