Despite the current extensive works going on in the surrounding area this is a perfect spot. Excellent, efficient young staff, good variety on the pub menu and perfect atmosphere.

Our Son and Bride had their Wedding reception at the Smugglers on 14/02/15 and I would like to thank Gary and the team for all the help they gave with pre-planning setting up and afterwards it was much appreciated . Despite the place being busy, Valentines day, we were well served by the friendly staff .I received many favourable comments... More

My husband and I had been for a coastal walk with the Smuggler's Inn being our planned destination for lunch. It's years since we've been here and I will certainly not be leaving it so long until my next visit. The bar is spacious, well laid out and the decor is tasteful and retains the charm of a traditional pub.... More

We visited 22/01/2015. It was fairly quiet on the customer front however there was a lot of noise from the building works to repair the river walls which was not too bad giving the cosy warm atmosphere. We had the baguettes for lunch which one would have been plenty to share between two people as the sub is about 12"... More

After a long walk from Ringstead Bay, it comes as a welcoming sight to come across the Smugglers Inn. A beautiful old Inn with fantastic food anytime of day. Excellent facilities for children and lovely views. Highly recommend.

This is a cracking pub to call into for lunch if you're on a coastal walk. We were here in the summer and although there were loads of people here eating we didn't have to wait for a table as they have an extensive outdoor area under parasols. The interior is lovely - I wanted to sit inside and enjoy... More

One of those bright sunny days but a vicious cold wind so it is great to find such a warm and welcoming pub just off the cliffs and beach. A hotch-potch of old furniture and comfy sofas round a fireside makes the inn feel cosy and small. In fact it has numerous tables and seems to have a bottomless capacity... More

The Smuggler's is a charming inn nestled on the coastline above the east end of Weymouth Bay. From the car park you get a fabulous view of the Isle of Portland. Access to the pub is down a considerably steep stairway so not recommended for people with mobility problems. The building is full of charm and sits on the Dorset... More

This is really a hidden gem. Charming English pub with gorgeous rustic decor. Friendly staff, good service and excellent food. We ate the classic burger, gammon egg and chips and carrot and coriander soup. Proper pub food and delicious. In a beautiful setting. Well worth a visit.
