Food was good and service excellent. I had reserved 3 tables for a leaving do, but was not told until one table had been given to someone else that there was a time limit on how long the tables could be held. I was under the impression we had booked all 3 for the rest of the evening. visited The Smugglers Tavern on 28 Jul 2017

Friendly service, had reserved a table which was nice, but ordered a platter for £20 and was aghast at how little was on it, other places that charge £10/12 for platters provide so much better value! Apart from that it was fine. visited The Smugglers Tavern on 11 Jul 2017

Super friendly staff, food I would give 8 and a half out of 10, nice atmosphere and a cosy nice place to have a drink or something to eat with friends. The reason I chose this place was beacause we had an appointment nearby and had a afamily lunch, and this seemed to be the only 'cosy' place in the area. And it was very cosy and clean. The rest of the places in this area tend to be a bit 'businessy / city style' and impersonal. Lovely place!! I recommend it. David Lake. visited The Smugglers Tavern on 29 Jun 2017

A really relaxing pub for post-work drinks any day of the week. It does get busy - especially outside if a sunny day. Bar staff are always really friendly and online booking confirmation for reserving a table really quick. Great food and range of drinks. Only down side is when busy the wait to be served can take a while as the bar area is quite small. I like this pub as it is tucked away a bit more from the busy Tottenham Court Road and Goodge Street area. visited The Smugglers Tavern on 02 Jun 2017

Nice pub with decent selection of rum. I'd like to see more craft beers available on tap though rather than just Meantime, something along the lines of Mother Kelly's would be great. visited The Smugglers Tavern on 03 Feb 2017

It's a lovely pub, with great staff and shabby chic naval décor. I sadly had a glass of red wine and half a bottle of coconut porter tipped down me by a chap who couldn't see me or hear me slowly walking past him as the pub was so packed and noisy. It was a wee bit too loud for 4 ladies who wanted a good catch up over dinner (we were shouting at each other across the table) - but the food was fabulous. visited The Smugglers Tavern on 24 Nov 2016

A really hospitable local boozer. Its rarely busy but in my opinion thats everybody elses loss - you'll be able to enjoy a good pint here and not have to spend ages queuing for it. Never tried food but they do Thai stuff I believe.
