“Good food, poor value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Two prawn salads and 2 soft drinks for over £30
Nice fresh salad, crisp, tasty, good mix but woefully small portion size
The other 'with chips' dishes looked ok size wise so perhaps just avoid the salads

“Always lovely food & friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

I have been going to Smiley's since I was a baby.

Carol & Andy are always friendly as are the staff.

The food is always fresh & tastes great.

With sea views & a time to people watch it's a great way to sit out by the seafront & relax.

“Quality all round”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

Excellent food at sensible prices and the greeting/service is always warm and friendly. Nothing to dislike in any way.
