Get in early and get a table! Food is great and generous portions. Very busy so tables are taken as soon as people finish. Beer very well kept and good choice. Everyone really friendly, lovely atmosphere and setting.

“Chance visit on the way home”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

Called in here on the way back to Fowey, no tables available but we were assured by the landlord that if we popped back we would be ok, he'd never let anyone leave starving. We stayed and had a drink and a table was soon free in the Smugglers Bar. It is a proper old style pub with small rooms and bags of atmosphere. The food was excellent, the portions enormous and the staff friendly and efficient. Would recommend anyone to try it, but not on a night that I want a table.

“Just amazing”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Hidden away from the main town we found this tiny little pub with such a big personality. Friendly staff and a great selection of food to choose from. Even happy to do childrens food. It is very small and finding a seat was hard work but we were certainly lucky. I would definitely be back here for a drink and something to eat next time we are in the area. Thanks girls.

“Best real pub in Mevagissey”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Visited this pub on a CAMRA recommendation and pleased we did. Local cider and beer on tap, friendly staff and if you're lucky on a Monday night, the local men's choir winding down from one of their regular concerts on the harbour.

We enjoyed our visit to this charming little place which was very busy and abound with character and atmosphere. A warm welcome saw us taken to the upstairs dining area where our table was cared for by a most charming and attentive waitress. Drinks arrived promptly whilst we perused the menu. My Scallops dish was extremely delicious whilst another had the Cornish sole which was huge and beautifully prepared. If I had to have one teeny word of criticism I would say too many chips on the plate ! More salad / veg and less chips would have made the meal even more appreciated. Yes we would definitely go back again !
