Visited it today for the first. Impressed with the level of service. Staff were very friendly. We had the gammon steak and the burger meals at lunch time. Both meals served on hot plates which kept the food warm. The meals were very tasty and sufficient but quite filling. Only improvement I would like to see on the burger is...

The freshly cooked breakfast in the morning was superb, from kippers to a full Irish breakfast and the service friendly and...

First impressions were great! the welcome we received was warm and helpful. We were very pleased with our room but quickly wanted to get out and enjoy the scenery and good weather. As we...

Nicely located on the lovely causeway coast. Lunch here was very nice, being on the coast I felt obliged to have cod and chips and it didn't disappoint. Portions were generous, fish was white and coated in a crisp batter. Service was fast and good, servers were very presentable and polite. Bit unusual that you have to pay for your...

We were staying in Bushmills and the Smugglers Inn was a 5 minute drive a st close to the Giants Causeway. It's location is aesthetically pleasing with superb views. The menu had a good choice at reasonable prices. Both food and service was good. Would certainly recommend the place for a meal if in the area.

Food and service top notch. Very friendly staff. Enjoyed a pint of Guinness and a meal with the wife in a very relaxed setting. Will come back when passing through again. Has a lot of character and is very quaint. Good portion sizes, and tasty fresh food.

A very good tourist hotel, close to the Giants Causway, with good food, big clean rooms that are suitable for families. The breakfast and bar food was very good and the staff are friendly and accommodating. The hotel s somewhat remote and only suitable you have a your own transport.

Had Sunday lunch at the Smugglers Inn and it was simply excellent. The food was straight forward and without unnecessary complications. Good hearty wholesome food, well cooked and served with a smile and great attention to detail. I had a starter of mushrooms cooked with strips of bacon and topped with bread crumbs. It was not the most wonderful dish...

Ate here last Wednesday as we were staying in the cottages at Ballylinny. Fantastic meal, really good steak and 'Champ' which I had not had for over 30 years. Good service, really nice welcome at reception, fantastic Irish coffee. A definite 'must visit' when in Bushmills.
