Got espetada and it was yummy, came with an option of rice or chips and with salad or veg. Took the veg option, which was mixed and pretty standard for pub grub, although still delicious. The espetadas were cooked ordered and were great. Would recommend. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, warm and delightful location, even in the winter.

It was busy when we arrived with no free tables to accommodate 5, so they opened the next section up for us, immediately turning on heating etc. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was great. Drinks were very reasonably priced.

A great country pub. Good food at reasonable prices. Not many left like this these days that are just a proper pub. Fire lit in the winter months. Friendly staff.

We stopped here on a Saturday lunchtime for a light lunch while we were taking a nostalgic drive around the island. A first disappointment was that, although there were moules on the menu, they didn't have any. So we opted for just a couple of starters, me having Gambas and my wife deep fried mushrooms with garlic mayo. Together, they... More

I have frequented this establishment for many, many years... yet only eaten there once before - and the less said about that particular [not mine] 'round the island' birthday the better. Having boarded the 'good ship Tripadvisor' some years ago, I have attempted to subscribe myself to trying to give a realistic, characteristic but wholly 'truthful' account - whilst at... More

This is a no frills pub, but despite being exceedingly busy, the staff were helpful and friendly all the way through out meal. Our food was very good and the atmosphere great! Would certainly eat there again.

Consistently good food and a warm welcome. Advisable to book though as I have been and not been able to get in, even out of the summer season. I have never had a bad meal here.

This cute little local is the perfect spot for a drink in the cooler months. They are very dog friendly which I love. Offering water and treats to any dog that comes in for a visit. Gentleman behind the bar was always very friendly to my friends and I when we visited. Never dined here but I have heard good... More

The Smugglers is very much in the tradition of a good British local. The bar is vibrant and friendly, exposed beams over an old-style bar, with a roaring fire throughout the winter. The main bar contains darts, and occasional sports on the television (and no music), with a few tables which can be dined at as well. The snug has... More
