We stayed at the Smugglers Inn during our road trip around Northern Ireland. We ate in the restaurant - service and food was excellent. Special offer was on, free starter and dessert with every main meal which made it excellent value for money. Good choice of food. Can strongly recommend the beef & Guinness pie and Atlantic cod in batter.... More

The Smugglers Inn is a ok resturant outside the small town Bushmill, close to the famous Giants Causeway. The food at The Smugglers Inn was ok, I ate the vegeterian pasta, not so special, but one gets measured. Staff is ok, not so very engaged and did'nt present the food for us. The room is quite nice, some pirate-related stuff,... More

We arrived the place quite late after a long day out in Belfast. This restaurant was recommended by a local, our B&B host, but in fact, we didn't have high expectation on its food since we were so hungry and we all just wanted to find a place to fill ourselves up. We basically ordered every dishes on the today's... More

We had a great meal here for my husband birthday, we went early though as we were told it is extremely popular and gets booked up from 5pm onwards. Food came quickly and they served good Irish beer. Very nice. Would not hesitate to eat here again.

The Smugglers Inn is very near the Giants Causeway so a great mix of nationalities in the dining room. We ate in the small but cosy bar section which was adorned by all things relating to the sea and some quaint posters which make good reading.. The service was exceptionally quick and the food great. The staff were very friendly... More

When we arrived at the Smugglers Inn we were very hungry after a long day. We were not disappointed, food portions were great and the food was lovely. Everyone really enjoyed their meals and the place was very welcoming with friendly service. We would highly recommend this as a place to stop for food.

Looked forward to returning to the Smugglers again for their excellent food. Was not disappointed. Took friends with us who live nearby. They hadn t been there for years and couldn t believe what they had been missing. The steaks were done to perfection and the Gammon and chicken dishes superb. The desserts were unbelievable. Thank you for your attentive... More
