Booked a last minute two night staff at The Smugglers... Having never stayed before was not sure what to expect but wow not disappointed! Barbara greeted us a friendly and very warm welcome, showed us to our room and even arranged a parking permit that saved me ££s... Excellent food, excellent breakfast and lovely comfortable room, only criticism is there's... More

Fantastically cooked homemade food. Great service as they couldn't do more to help us. Visited whilst on holiday with the family and was amazed by the quality of food and fantastic service we returned later in the week. When we returned it was busy and as we were a large group we weren't sure if we would get a seat... More

I ate here with family at the end of a holiday, the building itself had a very nice feeling (although if your tall your going to need to duck!), and the food was delicious and presented extremely well. We only had a slight criticism - one of the diners found a number of substantial pieces of eggshells in their dish.... More

The most welcome I've ever felt in a restaurant ever. The food was bounteous and beautifully cooked and presented. Lots of homemade, different and special touches. But the front of house skills were phenomenal. All for a very good price and amazing value. If you're even remotely considering going here - do. Beautiful harbour views, attentive but relaxed service and... More

As ever, Barbara is a welcoming & friendly hostess. The food is excellent & well presented with good portion sizes, you always feel as though you've had a meal! Great views over the harbour enhance the whole experience & it's a great place to impress.

I have just had an amazing meal with my partner, her mom and grandmother. The food was amazing as was the service. I would highly recommend eating here if you are staying in or visiting Newlyn. I'm not the sort to post reviews unless it's really poor or amazing and this is definitely in the amazing category. I will be... More

What a lovely meal we had here! The food was amazing and the staff were very helpful. Although I'm not sure of her name the waitress that helped us was really amazing and we would like to thank her for a lovely evening and for sorting out a taxi for us on the way back.

We were a party of 4 visiting midweek. We were the only people in the restaurant, so unsurprisingly service was good, but our waitress had a lovely manner. Starters were mixed - the feta with aubergine was pronounced excellent with flavours that really complemented each other, the fish and shellfish was quite nice although felt it would have been better...
