“Brilliant pub by the beach.”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

A cosy, friendly pub right on the seafront just yards from Roker's award winning beach. Average priced drinks and a good selection of lagers, ales, ciders and more. The landlord is a top bloke and the place is very accommodating for dog owners. Dogs are definitely allowed here, families are welcome which gives the place a relaxed atmosphere.
My only fault with the Smugglers is the lack of mobile phone reception. Due to its location at the bottom of high cliffs it is very difficult to get any sort of reception on your cell. However for most people this is a bonus, as them and their friends have to look up from their smartphones and actually have conversation and banter!
The Smuggler's is also well known as a music venue, showcasing quality local bands almost every night.

“Great Place”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Went to the Smugglers for the first time three years ago and was really impressed with the warm friendly down to earth atmosphere. Been quite a few times now when I am up for the football they have great bands on and the Landlord and Landlady are very welcoming. Great music- great beer- great fun- Top place!!!.

“Great traditional style pub”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

We only popped in for a quick pint while visiting the area on the bank holiday weekend, but we found the owners so pleasant and chatty that we ended up staying for a few!
The landlady is absolutely lovely and a fellow dog lover. She is a fantastic host and perfect for those like myself who love nothing more than a chat and unrushed pint. A good choice of ales kept my son happy too. Great little pub on the beach, definitely will return.
