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.

Great pub menu. Pub is in a fantastic location right on the coast path to walk off or earn one of their delicious puds!

A very old pub with a stunning view on Osmington Mills, stunning atmosphere and deco, very traditional with low ceilings and beautiful quotes written on walls. The food was nothing special, but very good anyway, but location and atmosphere are really outstanding.

This place was recommended by a friend so we thought we try it out for ourselves. It looks cozy from the outside and inside. At one point am sure it was but now it's just an en masse food producing chain pub. It was only when we got the menu, we realised it was the same as at the Lulworth... More

Arrived at a busy time, early evening, was told it would be a 25-30 min wait for a table, turned out we only had to wait 19 mins. Lovely pub in lively location, great ambience. Good selection of Ales. Meal choice was good, although my 1st choice wasn't available, steak I ordered was well cooked, but the accompanying salad was... More

from the moment you step over the door you are made to feel extremely welcome. The ambience, staff and food are excellent. We were shown straight to a table and were made welcome by a member of staff. The service was fast and efficient, nothing was too much trouble. When the food arrived it was piping hot and cooked to... More

This Inn is in a brilliant location. Fantastic views in the car park which is on up a bit from the Inn. £5 car park charge for three hours which is refunded when you eat in the Inn. Food was lovely - I had Moroccan chicken which had fantastic flavours. Staff were very friendly and couldn't do more to help.... More
