Came in for lunch, a good time to visit as it was not so busy. Had the pasta, enjoyed it but got hit with the runs after. Not good indeed, it did not just happen to me, my partner had the same as I did and he got hit with the same issue! Not good Smitty's. !

Went to watch the rugby on a Saturday night so we knew if would be busy. Managed to find a table just had to wait for it too be cleared... After looking at the menu we didn't expect much from the one chef we could see. We got our order in early because we knew the dockets would pile up...... More

Smitty's is always great fun, wonderful bar staff and the food ain't too bad either. In the center of town and they have just changed the bar around to make more room inside. Great place to network with people, and a great place to meet up with mates.

Called in for a Beer and to watch the game, great easy place to relax with no stuffiness. Not a place you'd want to take the great aunt but for a few beers with your mates and close to the main street - excellent

The new decor catches your eye as soon as you walk in, a much better layout. The staff are much more friendlier than before. The food is greatly improved in size, quality and value for money. The most enjoyable night we have had there in a long time. Well done Smitty's.

Great friendly pub, good prices and a nice place to sit and watch the world go by. Looks like they do a good trade with the locals but did not mind tourists dropping in.
