“Excellent value for home cooked meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

We have enjoyed 3 meals at the Smugglers recently and would recommend them to you. The landlady is quite a character and does not suffer fools gladly but treats all customers with a subtle humour!! The beer is very good too. Book in the restaurant for a comfortable meal or in the bar area if you dont mind a bit of background chatter. For £9.95 mondays to fridays you cannot go wrong.Sunday lunch needs to be booked as it gets very busy. Our last sunday meal was delicious. Give it a go you will not be disappointed!!

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

3 of us have today been to the Smugglers Inn and what can I say, It was fantastic. 2 of our party had the 3 course meal for £9.95 which would be hard to beat. Not just cheap food thrown on a plate, but beatifully presented food of high quality. We will without doubt be going again. And contrary to some of the other reviews, the staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Went to the smugglers unplanned. Walked into bar, staff very friendly and welcoming. Food was good, my friends chips were the best. Staff in the restaurant very kind and helpful. The prices are reasonable. All in all i would definately go again and recommend to others.

“3 courses for £9.95, good portions, hot, good waitresses - poor bar staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

It was lovely food in main restaurant, served very quickly, they're doing 3 courses for £9:95. Start took 7 mins, main further 10 mins, dessert 15 mins. all hot, beautifully presented - very good; BUT pretty unfriendly in the bar. The locals were blocking the bar up :( and barmaid didn't say hello or acknowledge us at all but the restaurant and food were very good. So much so 18 of us are booked in for 2 weeks time !!!!! :)
