Like many of the pubs in Jersey this is more about food than a leisurely drink. There is no outside space just a 70s lean to on the front, which we were told by a local we had to stay in as "[the landlord] doesn't like people outside". Okay for a fly in visit but not a candidate for best... More

Great food, have been here several times. Have had Espteda and also Ribs; highly recommend and very good portion sizes. Recently had ribs and the sauce was one of the best I've had. Does get very busy at peak times so worth booking.

I've dinned here on 4 separate occasions whilst in Jersey. The staff are welcoming and always try to fit you in, even if you haven't booked. The food always hits the right spot - "spot on". The value for food is good too.The owner / manager works hard to ensure everyone enjoys their visit. Great ales too.

The Old Smugglers is and old fashioned and un-spoilt 'real' pub that offers food. It is nothing sparkly and fancy but the food here is very nice. Staff are friendly and happy to help. The restaurant does not open until 6pm so if you get there early you will have to wait and once you have finished you can walk... More

So nice to go to the Smugglers, everyone can find something to eat, and the staff are cheerful and helpful. All of us enjoyed our food, particularly the chips, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, yum. Oh, and the espetadas. It was a good evening, and not too pricey.

I remembered a fantastic meal here on a visit 35 years ago so decided to return. I was so disappointed. I ordered steak and Guinness pie. I was served a dish of watery stew and a slice of over cooked puff pastry. The two had never met, the pastry was dry!. The chips were not much better the eyes had... More
