We stopped here on a Saturday lunchtime for a light lunch while we were taking a nostalgic drive around the island. A first disappointment was that, although there were moules on the menu, they didn't have any. So we opted for just a couple of starters, me having Gambas and my wife deep fried mushrooms with garlic mayo. Together, they... More

I have frequented this establishment for many, many years... yet only eaten there once before - and the less said about that particular [not mine] 'round the island' birthday the better. Having boarded the 'good ship Tripadvisor' some years ago, I have attempted to subscribe myself to trying to give a realistic, characteristic but wholly 'truthful' account - whilst at... More

This is a no frills pub, but despite being exceedingly busy, the staff were helpful and friendly all the way through out meal. Our food was very good and the atmosphere great! Would certainly eat there again.

Consistently good food and a warm welcome. Advisable to book though as I have been and not been able to get in, even out of the summer season. I have never had a bad meal here.

This cute little local is the perfect spot for a drink in the cooler months. They are very dog friendly which I love. Offering water and treats to any dog that comes in for a visit. Gentleman behind the bar was always very friendly to my friends and I when we visited. Never dined here but I have heard good... More

The Smugglers is very much in the tradition of a good British local. The bar is vibrant and friendly, exposed beams over an old-style bar, with a roaring fire throughout the winter. The main bar contains darts, and occasional sports on the television (and no music), with a few tables which can be dined at as well. The snug has... More

We stopped for lunch prior to walking across St Brelade’s Bay beach. The mussels were excellent, the best I tasted on the island in a week’s holiday when I tried mussels in four different pubs. Well worth a visit, and the beer is good too.

Fancied a pub lunch and a day out with our little dog. The pub is lovely and warm with a log fire and a warm friendly feeling from the locals. The staff were all very friendly and our lunch was just what we needed, with a large choice from the menu, also the nicest pint of Guinness I've ever had... More

We found this pub/restaurant tucked away off the beaten track a few years ago and each year we always have a couple of meals there. The location, staff and food is always excellent. Be careful is you arrive by car at night in the winter as you may end up in the Bay!!!

Pretty pub in a lovely quiet location away from the hustle and bustle esp in the autumn at the time of our visit. The inside the pub was warm and comfortable and a lovely place to relax. This pub is also dog friendly which was good. The menu was extensive along with a large children's menu. Good range of beers... More
