About The Smugglers Inn

The Smugglers Inn is a traditional family run pub/restaurant that caters for all. We have a highly acclaimed carvery with a "Pasture to Plate" policy (meaning all of our meat and most produce is local and organic). Our carvery has become famous over the years for its variety, indulgent quality and flavour. We pride ourselves in supplying you with the highest quality, perfectly cooked meat on the market. We source every cut of meat on the menu from local, award winning butchers, G.T. Orsman, located in Shaldon, Devon. We cater to all ages and all appetites with our carvery, offering a range of different sizes to best suit you, as well as gluten free and vegetarian choice.

Very tasty food but they make too many people go up for food at once, we went up for food and left my husband with kids at the table, we were up at the carvery for 15mins then my husband went up and was up there waiting 30 mins. So we couldn’t eat together which was very disappointing then made our experience quite stressful.

Advantage going into restaurant area is that orders for drinks and food can be made at the comfort of table, rather than stand in queue at bar. Food generally of high standard including carvery.

We are fairly regular customers (normally once every month or two depending on other commitments). We never feel rushed either to take our table or leave it when we have finished eating. We always book in advance. We did feel the selection of vegetables this time was not up to the usual standard but was still very good compared to other carveries. Cauliflower cheese is yummy!!

Had a carvery which was really nice but the food could have been hotter. The service was excellent and the restaurant area was very comfortable. Would definitely go back.

Very good service and well presented meals.The Messy One dessert should be described a bit better as you are led to believe there are strawberries in it as it describes it as crushed meringue and strawberry
