Ate here three times as the menu catered for my vegetarian daughter, my son who has an nut and egg allergy and us unfussy parents! Good range of food to suit us all and welcoming staff too.

Ate at Smithy's as a party if 12 and the whole evening was great. Brilliant service and excellent food. Ribs were wonderful. Wide selection on the menu. Would go again tomorrow...if it wasn't a 14 hour drive....

We come to ADH 2-3 times a year, and each time, we make sure we go to Smithys 2-3 times. The food, atmosphere and staff are just the best. My son describes the nachos as the best he's ever had, and I have to agree. We tried most of the excellent menu, and it is all lovely. My personal favourite... More

We went with a very mixed age group and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food. It was fresh varied and reasonably priced. I had the biggest and nicest fillet steak there. The staff were lovely and helpful too. Highly recommended.

So much food! But good quality, freshly cooked and really tasty. We've gone out for dinner in the Alps on the chalet hosts night off many a time, but this is the first time we've gone nine mountain food. Well worth it. We shared a mixed starter and a meat platter and thoroughly enjoyed the range and the spicy sauces.... More

Reminded me a bit of a TGI Fridays but food was far better. Steak cost about 25 euro but was the best steak we had ever tasted. Dors get a bit noisy but has sports on tv and lively atmosphere. After dinner the tables are pushed back and there is a dj and small dance floor. Service second to none... More

Nice food, very good portions for the sharing plates and differents items. Pauline who was the person who helped us out was very friendly, making sure we had what we need, helped us choose when we weren't sure about the items we wanted to pick.
