After much exploring and trying out of pub food in the Newquay/Crantock area, we now award this pub our 'Best One' award!! Thank goodness for that - now we know exactly which pub to go to when we arrive! It is 'smarter' and a bit pricier than some of the others in the area, but that suits us coz I... More

We really enjoyed our 2 visits to the Smugglers Den. The staff is very friendly, the place with the Christmas decoration is beautiful. The portions for the prices are enormous.

We have been staying in a local holiday let for 6 days over the new year period - and have been for lunch once and dinner on three occasions. Wow, wow, WOW! At times there had been two of us, sometimes four of us, sometimes nine of us...but not one bad or even mediocre meal. The pollack, the mussels, venison,... More

We went for a New Year's Eve dinner at the Smugglers Den and were very happy with the choice. Old stone English pub, charming interior and the Christmas decorations were the best I've seen in a long time! I've had the humus which was homemade and my partner had the pork belly which he really enjoyed. Advice: If you use... More

The location is great as it is hidden away off the beaten track, the pub just as you would expect inside with an open fire. The food is delightful.

We had a set Sunday lunch - £9.00 for one course and £12 for two or three courses. This, at least, was what it said on the board. Whilst tucking into our dessert, someone came and changed the price of three courses to £15. Still excellent value but not what we had bought into. We called the waitress who had... More

Lovely little cottage setting, with a lovely atmosphere and excellent food. Staff were very friendly, would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a romantic evening with great food. The Smugglers Den is also pet friendly, where... More

As I was meeting my daughter from nearby Newquay Airport, from a flight that landed at 1.15pm, I booked a table for Sunday lunch for us here at 1.45pm. Owing to delays at the airport, we did not arrive until 2pm, but were told thy the friendly staff that lunch is served until 3pm, so our late arrival was not... More
