We called in for a drink and a meal on a very sunny evening and the food was very good indeed, I had the gammon and my partner had a steak pie ,all very nicely cooked and decent sized portions too , we both finished off with coffees which went down a treat.would definitely eat here again.

We stayed for 4 nights in early May. Our room was in an older part of the building, but was very comfortable, maybe a bit small for some. Good shower. Has own pay & display car park, free for guests, machine broken while we were there so free for everyone. Its a good location for exploring the area and the...

My friends and I visited twice the same weekend as it was so lovely! Food beautiful. Sunday roast was fantastic! The waiting staff were very friendly. The whole place is very clean and well looked after. The most beautiful setting. Luckily the car park machine was out of order when we visited as I think £4 to park is a...

We stopped at the Smugglers Inn after walking from Weymouth. The staff were welcoming the meals were a good size and well cooked. The onion rings were some of the best I have ever had. It was a friendly and cosy pub will definitely visit again.

When we booked we asked if they could assist me as I am wheat allergic, nut allergic, dairy intolerant. We had a wonderful Sunday lunch, in delightful surroundings. And no risk to me!! This historic Inn is delightful at every level. I would guess parking would be limited in busy times. Wonderful views out across the bay from the car...

The change of management means the really great menu has been sacrificed in favour of the standard Hall & Woodhouse menu which is safe and quite boring deep fryer or griddle food. The staff and manager are still great and the breakfast is amazing....does you for the day. The rooms are the same lovely standard and the pub situation is...

This little Inn is in a beautiful location, with stunning views. It was very quiet when we went for a late lunch. The service was perfect and the food as amazing! We all enjoyed our very different meals. Parking is situated across from the Inn, which is pay and display. I really can't fault this little gem.

nice food although had to wait a while. bread a bit dry on the edges but lovely sandwich otherwise. nice side salad but covered in mustard seeds..not everyone likes mustard, maybe leave it plain. lovely to sit outside in the sunshine although it did rain and had to move.

It was a lovely place but has gone downhill over the last few years with a much smaller menu, worse food and service. We visited recently and were told that the kitchen was closed at 8.45, during school holidays, there was plenty of people there but it wasn't so busy they had to stop taking orders.. it might just be...
