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...

The Smugglers offer the best food in the area. If you go to the pub nearby, you might even meet one of the fishermen who actually caught your food in the morning. In London, it would cost over £100, here it's 50. The service is also great, the woman serving us was adorable. The wine is also totally decent.

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and followed the great advice. We agree! Beautiful meal watching the boats going out for the night from the harbour and wonderful food. we previously we haven't been fish eaters but are now. Lovely meal. Ask for a seat by the window!

We stayed at The Smugglers for B and B whilst walking The Coastal Path. Stephen and Barbara were very welcoming. The room was lovely, beautifully decorated with our own patio outside the room. To top our B and B experience we had the best breakfast I've had in a long time. The whole experience was really fantastic.
