Food was delicious and you really get a lot for your money. A fish lovers paradise with a number of choices on both the starters and mains, all caught fresh from the Newlyn fishing boats! The service was excellent, the hostess was very friendly and welcoming. Seats at the window provide a glorious view of the fishing boats in the... More

The restaurant is well appointed with sparkling cutlery and glasses laid out on crisp white table clothes. The starters are very good. I had the spicy prawns that were tasty with a generous amount of smoked salmon. I chose the vegetarian option for my main which was good. Other mains were good apart from the steak which was tough.

After reading good reviews on tripadvisor I decided to try the Smugglers which I have walked past loads of times in Newlyn and not really given a second glance. I'm so glad I tried it because it is a lovely... More

Husband had roasted hake and I had blackened cod which were both delicious and served to a really high presentation standard. Deserts were wonderful and cheese board contained all local cheeses. Wine ( chardonnay) was one of the... More

A good choice of menu, including fish and meat dishes, order promptly taken and not a long wait for the courses to arrive.Tap water offered rather than suggesting expensive bottled variety. Invited to share a pudding if... More
