After yachting on the ocean it was a must to have a bear on a shore. The choice was right! Recommended

A great place to grab a meal washed down with a good choice of cold refreshments. Recommend to travellers both young and old alike.

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.
