We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The waitress was so friendly and the food was amazing! I'm a coeliac and it's so lovely to eat somewhere that you don't have to worry about what your eating. My husband who is not coeliac said it's his new favourite restaurant! We can't wait to come back

Super friendly staff who clearly explained the Covid rules and the menu. Food was great- the smoked meat choices were a great USP - all 4 of us went for it, very tasty! Will definitely visit again when in the area.

Three of us visited on Sunday 1st November. We were greeted at the door by a pleasant member of staff and waited a few minutes while our table was cleaned. All three of us had the smoked brisket with all the trimmings, it was all delicious. Once again we are on lockdown, I do hope to return when you re-open in December 🤞. Our waitress was really nice and friendly . ,

Excellent for Sunday roast and fab service. Went for dinner with my daughters, one being vegan and whilst the menu is mainly meat based they were so accommodating and went out of their way to ensure she had a fully vegan dinner - thank you - will defo be back

What to say...amazing food, fantastic service! I have really struggled to find somewhere that serves great food that is gluten free especially being coeliac you really worry about what is on the menu so this place is my new favourite as I can finally go to a restaurant without having to ask for a gluten free version of the menu. It was our second visit and we can't wait to come back!! :)

I have eaten at the Smugglers Run several times since lockdown. Charlotte and her team carry out the COVID-19 regulations meticulously and look after everyone very well. The food is excellent and everything is gluten free for those with an intolerance. I can certainly recommend the Smugglers Run.

This is the fourth time that we have been to the Smuggler’s Run for a meal since it reopened in the summer. My wife and I both feel safe there as they take all necessary steps to keep us safe. The food was excellent and Charlotte and her team looked after us really well. If you want good food in a very pleasant place then I can whole heartedly recommend the Smuggler’s Run

Hi the best roast ever, just a little disappointed in the gf and DF brownie, slightly over cooked. Also we were concerned as our waiter didn't wear a mask whereas all the other serving staff were.
