For years we have visited the smugglers inn, it’s always been a great place to visit with the family. I don’t know if it’s changed hands but the food and service standards have both dropped. Frozen food eg chips, left most of my fish. I...More

We enjoyed a good family meal here, staff friendly. Quiet on arrival but it had only just opened, nice menu. They offer a reward card on pints of beer, small seating area outside. A few pounds dearer than is probably necessary but that’s Cornwall and...More

A nice enough pub, serving a decent pint but sadly we were met by a strong aroma of wet dog as we went it which for someone who is not particularly dog friendly was very off-putting. We didn’t hang around long.More

We ate at Smugglers on a lovely sunny Friday evening and it was very busy. We ordered fish and chips, gammon and fish pie and were told there would be 20 minute wait. No problem at all as that meant time for a drink before...More

Initially a nice welcome from the lady behind the bar. Ordered 8 oz burger and the cheese on toast. After a 30 -40 minute wait; over cooked food was heavily placed on the table. Food was dry and tasteless. Will not ever be coming back.

Visited here for a lovely lunch after walking along the beach. The prices are reasonable and the food was very tasty and good value for money. Would definitely go here again if in the area.

We were allowed to keep our 3 dogs with us in the restaurant area. They slept happily under the table whilst we enjoyed the carvery.
