The Smugglers Retreat has now changed back to the Smugglers Inn after a change of ownership. The food was average 'pub grub', ok but not exciting. The main problem is there is something lacking, no front of house personality, just a bland cold atmosphere. The old army photo graphs have been replaced with bare walls and a screw jutting out!!!
One improvement is the better choice of drinks on the pumps, including Doombar.
If the Smugglers is going to survive it needs to develop a more welcoming environment.
As the old school reports say, ' Must try harder'
