We chose The Smuggler's as it's right on the South West Coastal Path and an ideal base for walking. The welcome was warm and friendly and the room clean and quite spacious. We ate in the restaurant on the first night and thought the food was good quality and reasonably priced. Breakfast on the first morning was OK, but the scrambled eggs were very over cooked; we opted for poached eggs the second morning and they were fine. Quality beer in the bar from Hall & Woodhouse provides an excellent end to a day's walking :-)
The walk from Osmington Mills to Lulworth Cove is excellent, returning via the higher route along the ridge. A nice day's walk with another Hall & Woodhouse pub in Lulworth Cove for a lunch break!
Overall a great stay and have no hessitation in returning or recommending. I imagine the bar and restaurant gets very busy in the summer months due to the nearby holiday homes and cabins.
