The Smugglers Rest is delighted to announce our re-opening date of Thursday 9th of July with a new funky summer menu. Some old favourites as well as some new additions. In order to prioritise the safety of all of our customers and staff we will be taking small steps in returning to normality. We ask everyone to please pre-book through our website in advance to be guaranteed your seat. Our staff have been fully trained up and we will be implementing the best policies we can. Initially we will be open from 12.30pm Thursday to Sunday for Lunch and Evening sittings. This is just temporary however to make sure we can implement a safe procedure.
Help us spread the word and can’t wait to see you all again next week.
