Very warmly welcomed, Barbara is an excellent host and very friendly - it's clear she has a genuine passion for her business and guests.

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...

This is week #2 of 13 weeks at 13 holiday homes in the UK. We discovered The Smugglers on Tuesday and had a phenomenal meal in warm, gracious perfectly appointed surroundings and booked again for an equally delightful experience on Friday. We've eaten well all over the world and The Smugglers rates a 10 of 10 in our book. a... More

Although we live nearby and have walked past this restaurant many times this was our first visit. What a great find! Good food well cooked and well presented. Friendly and helpful service. Would definitely recommend.

On a family holiday in Newlyn previous occupants of our rental cottage had recommended the Smugglers. We had walked past a few times and thought it looked quite nice. My partner had been so disappointed not to find any Cornish sardines in Cornwall that when he rang to book our table he asked if they were available. Immediately Barbara said... More

We were touring around Cornwall, so booked one nights stay in this restaurant with rooms, our bedroom was gorgeous, it's situated at the back of the building unfortunately no sea view, the room was very big, with a huge en suite, it was immaculate with a comfy bed, the only negative was the TV, the signal wasn't very good. We... More

We went there with my sister. Starters were amazing, mussels and the sauce they were cooked in was the best I ever had. For main course I had sole and I'll never again think it's ordinary fish! Service was very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend.

The Smugglers is easy to miss because it is situated on the narrow road looking over Newlyn harbour which makes it difficult to put up display boards, but we're glad we found it and would recommend it to others for sure. Newlyn harbour is always interesting, with plenty of boat movements happening and on the evening that we visited it... More
