English pub located in a stunning coastal location
Situated on the cliff tops of the South West Coast Path, just outside the village of Osmington, the Smugglers Inn is a traditional English pub with stunning views overlooking the Isle of Portland.
The headquarters of the French smuggler Pierre Latour and one of the main landing places for smuggled goods in the 17th century, the Inn was originally built in the 13th century, with its own brewery at the rear.
In 2016, Hall & Woodhouse spent £250k to shore up the walls of the small stream that runs in front of the pub, which involved diverting it for four months and indeed because of coastal erosion, there’s a good chance the Smugglers won’t be with us by 2068, so enjoy it while you can!
With a beautiful garden for summer, as well as roaring log fires and oak beams inside for the longer and colder winter nights, the Smugglers can be truly enjoyed all year round.
We’re open 7 days a week and can’t wait to see you!
Please note you’ll need to book in advance, either online or via the phone, for all food and drink visits.
We’ve also made some changes to keep you safe. For more details of what to expect when you visit, please click here.

"Five and twenty ponies
Trotting through the dark
Brandy for the Parson
Baccy for the Clark
Laces for a Lady, letters for a spy
And watch the wall, my darling, while the Smugglers go by"
We think ours are the best (apart from Mum’s!) and we spend all week looking forward to them. Freshly roasted every Sunday morning and served with seasonal veg, Yorkshire pud, roasties and gravy, homemade in our kitchen.SEE OUR FULL MENU
It was deep in Dorset’s rolling hills and patchwork fields, in 1777, that local farmer Charles Hall brewed our first beer. A union of the Hall & Woodhouse families soon followed and the story of Badger beer had begun.
