Reviewed 29 November 2008

stayed here in november me and my partner, if all cornish people are like the ones working here then i would never return, the food was the worst iv EVER paid for. the rooms had dirt everywhere and when i said something they said well you get what we have left!!!! we went to some of the pubs in hayle and they are gorgeous and the staff have smiles on there faces! you have to have a philps pasty it will make your holiday!!!!! but if you do deside to stay here dont let them put you off because there are a lot of great things to do and see close by.

Stayed over the New Year at the Smugs after getting to know the locals and the landlord and landlady over the years visiting for the excellent food.
Great pub, great setting with far reaching views to Hayle and St. Ives from the beer garden. The beer garden its self is really large and ideal for kids to run around.
The pub is "olde worlde" in some parts with a modern extension and function room. Menu is superb using locally sourced cornish produce wherever possible with kids choices available. Usually a good specials board and meal deals through the week. Sunday lunch is enormous!! and the pub is usually very busy due to the Jazz club meetings held there each week. The accommodation upstairs is basic but nice and clean, we certainly had no complaints, although a bit on the expensive side, on the other hand, its a great place to stay and the landlord & landlady made us feel like part of the family, nothing was too much trouble for them.

  • Liked — friendlyness of the staff and the location.
  • Disliked — not much really!!
  • Stayed December 2006, travelled with family
