Old Smugglers Inn
Ranked #6 of 10 St Brelade B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 February 2012

You can still find traditional pubs around the place every now and then - I'm gald to say this this is certainly one of them. No plastic out of the box furnishings, microwave ping meals or the same boring range of lager / mass produced beer. Traditional decor, really good pub grub and some excellent hand made fish based dishes as well. This is also a free house, so you're always bound to get something new or different to try.

The pub is based in Quaisne Bay right opposite a larger car park and about 1 minute stroll to the beach. No buses serve the bay, but's it's a 10 minute walk up to Portlet to get the bus if you don't want to drive. Or a 5 minute walk down the beach from St Brelade.

For me, it's the best real pub on the island. Great atmosphere - especially for the 6 Nations rugby matches. Good mix of locals and tourists during 'the season' as well - always a good sign if the locals keep coming back time and time again.

We used to go to the smugglers quite often. It has a nice warm atmosphere and good service. The food is OK, a bit overpriced.

Can really only endorse what everyone else has already said. Great local pub down by the bay at the end of a windy road, busy with both locals and visitors, good pub grub at a decent price, lots of good ales and a friendly welcome. We used the public car park more-or-less opposite.

Every time we visit Jersey we always call here. The staff were very pleasant and the meals very good. It is located down a winding lane but beware of the sharp bend halfway down. The interior has an old traditional feel to it and was busy shortly after we arrived. There is a large car park opposite and the sea is less than a minutes walk away.

The staff at the bar were very welcoming. We only had drinks but the food looked good. Log fires burning in the bar areas. Definately worth a visit.
