Fantastic place

The Smugglers offer the best food in the area. If you go to the pub nearby, you might even meet one of the fishermen who actually caught your food in the morning. In London, it would cost over £100, here it's 50. The service is also great, the woman serving us was adorable. The wine is also... read more

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and followed the great advice. We agree! Beautiful meal watching the boats going out for the night from the harbour and wonderful food. we previously we haven't been fish eaters but are now. Lovely meal. Ask for a seat by the window!

We stayed at The Smugglers for B and B whilst walking The Coastal Path. Stephen and Barbara were very welcoming. The room was lovely, beautifully decorated with our own patio outside the room. To top our B and B experience we had the best breakfast I've had in a long time. The whole experience was really fantastic.

Both myself and my wife dined at the restaurant during a recent visit to mousehole. The seafood was to die for with the best tasting scallops that I have ever had. My wife doesn't eat seafood however that was no problem as she had the steak which was perfect. The selections of desert was also impressive and tasted fantastic. Lovely... More

Very warmly welcomed, Barbara is an excellent host and very friendly - it's clear she has a genuine passion for her business and guests. The room was comfortable, clean and had all the facilities you'd expect. The bed and pillows were exceptionally comfortable and there was plenty of tea and coffee available. The seagulls can be heard almost round the... More

We were looking for a decent fish restaurant in Newlyn and walked past the Smugglers on our way to a pub down the road, after a quick drink we decided on the Smugglers which turned out to be top rate as described by other reviews. The Hake was £15.95 and Lemon Sole £15.50. Parking in the area is terrible and... More

Having walked past a few times during the week and seen the Smugglers busy we called in on an afternoon and booked a table for the evening. We were greeted by Barbara on arrival, and offered a choice of tables overlooking Newlyn harbour - the restaurant really couldn't be better situated for watching the boats from which your dinner arrived...
