    Well situated for adjacent Airbnb. Staff pleasant and friendly given they were very busy. Pre booked, was found a table within five minutes. No specials board offered, saw it later. Fish was very fresh and cooked perfectly. Good batter. Chips were cooked but soggy. Perfectly adequate. Declined dessert.

    The food ordered was not what was served, though this was corrected when pointed out, it was luke warm and poorly presented. The waitress was sullen and miserable. The dining area was lacking any character and looked tired and dated. An overall very unpleasant experience.

    Food was excellent, but the experience was let down by the slow service due to having only one server on duty. Open plan room created little ambiance, Would recommend due excellent food and good value.

    Went there on recommendation of the bed and breakfast we were staying at nearby. Welcoming staff Attentive and friendly. Food quickly delivered without feeling rushed. Well cooked and decent portions. Good value and a bonus as the pub is dog friendly. A bonus socialising my young puppy. Would recommend

    This was my first visit to The Smiths for over 50years.as I live out of the area, it was suggested as a possible venue to meet up with family. I was very pleased with welcome received, the friendliness of the staff, a very comprehensive menu selection and the food was nice and hot when delivered to the table and very tasty. I would definitely visit again

    Took my parents on Friday night. Probably the nicest food we have had in the area! Starters Cockles & Laverbread was so tasty best have tasted! Sea Bass fillets were lovely with buttery mash, my mum had the Beef Strogonoff made with sirloin, It was outstanding with the creamy sauce & home made Chips and my dad had the Lamb Shank it was big with plenty of meat falling off the bone. Desserts were delicious ! Service was great Book now you won't be disappointed!

    A friendly pub, both staff and clientele! Quite busy with some largish groups in situ, but service was quick, friendly and efficient. Food was delicious for both of us. I had an exquisite beef stroganoff and my wife had there beer-battered fish and chips which she found to be most toothsome. Much fuss was made of our hound too in this dog-friendly establishment.

    Although we have eaten here many times our table in the restaurant was not ready so we were seated in the bar, we found this crowded and noisy. Next time we will decline a table in the bar. Saying that the food could not be faulted.

    Excellent friendly service. One of our party has a small appetite so just had a starter of Welsh rarebit which was a very adequate. The rest of us had salads which were excellent. Portions were large and we had difficulty eating everything especially as we had ordered sides as well! The teriyaki sauce was delicious, too. Will definitely recommend going here for food.

    Best meal had in ages!! Great menu choices, including specials board. Well stocked bar. Excellent service from friendly Landlord and amazing crew. Nice traditional pub setting with sectioned off dining. Outdoor seating for warmer days/nights. Family friendly for all occasions. We both chose steak which was perfectly cooked and came with all the trimmings. Very generous portions, so much so, we had no room for dessert! Would recommend booking as it is very popular. Would definitely return. 10 out of 10.
