Me and partner very much enjoyed our visit yesterday. We cannot recommend this place enough, the food was just delicious and the staff were friendly and accommodating. We are excited to return and try more of what this lovely pub has to offer when we can dine inside :) thank you for a great experience.

BEST meal in a LONG time!!! We are thrilled to have discovered this little gem of a place as with 2 GF members of the family having a good choice of food is such a treat and the Smugglers Run didn't disappoint as everything on the menu is GF! We ate far too much just to sample all the wonderful things of offer that other places fail to offer! My daughter hasn't had calamari in years and was so happy to enjoy this again. We will be back again and again and again! Thank you and many complements to the chef ... the roast is also to die for!

Really nice food, the portions are a bit small and the sides and drinks are definitely over priced but it was delicious and the staff were really sweet. I'll definitely be coming back.
