My partner and his brother decided to go for sunday lunch and I suggested this place so off we went very much looking forward to it.. every thing was going fine food was served. Not long after this I looked at my partners face of dismay I asked whats wrong hed found a medium length ed black hair in the dinner now when id spoke to a thai lady who quickly telling us shes the owner! She looked at me like I was scum and trying to get out of paying for a meal I was totally embarist at her reaction as I had even spoke quietly as to not let it disturb anyone elses meal.. I can honestly stay me our any relation of mine will never be there again!!

Spent a lovely afternoon on a beautiful December day in the Smuggler's Creek. They were very busy when we arrived so on the manager's suggestion we made a booking and went for a stroll on the beach and then enjoyed a drink at the bar.

Once were seated, the table service was excellent, we had the garlic mussels to start with, which I think were the best garlic mussels I've ever had. I then had the fish and chips, which were really good, the fish had a nice light batter, it was a huge portion and I didn't finish it. The duck salad that my friend had was also really good. The menu is very well priced.

In addition to great food, the view is just stunning - even if you don't have time to come here for food it is worth driving up to enjoy a drink, especially on a good day when you can sit outside.

I will definitely be returning.

Never fails to impress, even on a cold crisp December day. Food and service excellent, and the mulled wine and chowder were outstanding. Booking advised, even for lunchtime.

Went to Smuggler's Creek with my partner on Sunday evening, I had never been before but I will definitely be back. The setting was beautiful and as promised by Emily that we would have a lovely table (which we did). The food was beautiful and the staff were so attentive, food & drinks were served quickly and most importantly food was delicious. Definitely can't wait to go back but I think the next time we go, we will book in and stay.
