We had booked, thank goodness as only small place which I don't think has it's own toilets - odd. Anyway both had surf and turf from the specials board. It was a huge portion, but I would rather have had less and better steak. No real taste to it and over cooked (asked for medium rare). The prawns and mussels were excellent. Service was good and chef adapted our dish as we are gluten intolerant. Expensive £70 for two - just two mains and bottle of wine!

This is the second time we have eaten here and I can safely say the food is amazing. I had the sea food linguini which was simply amazing. I did have a small issue with my meal but the staff sorted it quickly and professionally. The Rioja was lovely and the atmosphere great. My only comment is that the puddings could have been better. I had the Eton mess and was disappointed. Such a shame after such a fab main course. We will definitely be back

Had booked the Smugglers because of the high rating on Trip Advisor. We luckily had booked, which you need to do and were very happy with our meal. We both had the breaded camembert which was lovely and the chilli roasted cod fillet with linguini was one of the best meals we had had in a very long time. We can not recommend this restaurant highly enough as we have had so many bad meals over the years and it was so nice to have one that we enjoyed so much.
