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.
Booking easy to make, table in nice position
Fabulous food my husband had a great day celebrating his birthday with friends and family - thanks for a great day
The food, beer, service , experience etc provided at The Smugglers Inn is second to none in my opinion. I have experienced many carveries but NOTHING compares to The Smugglers Inn near Dawlish. It is, and always has been, the best for many miles around. It caters for families, couples, large groups old and young and is highly recommended.
Had a slight wait for gluten free gravy and Yorkshire pudding to be brought to the table despite prior notification. Really good food and service.
Really lovely lunch!
Always a high quality carvery with excellent service
Great time had by all, fantastic service and value. Thank you
It is always a good carvery but could be improved if more vegetables not covered in cream and if there was lamb sometimes.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. I had the prawn twisters which was, probably, one of the best meals I have ever had at a restaurant! All credit to the chef, they were amazing!!! Very pleasant and friendly atmosphere. Our waiter was very helpful and easy to talk to, always a bonus. Very good value for money too. Thank you to you all at The Smugglers, we will definitely recommend and come again
Always go to the smugglers when I’m in Devon and it’s always superb
Great meal, love this place!!
Excellent as always.
The best carvery in Devon! Wonderful as always. Thank you.
We always enjoy our visits to the smugglers and visit on a regular basis for food and drink, we visited on this occasion with a group or 8 including 3 children. The food was great as usual and we had a fab time the only slight negative was approx 15 mins after ordering we were told to go get our carvary as the other meals were ready to be served however it was atleast a further 10 mins before the 2 children’s meals were brought to the tables
The carvery was delicious as usual. The team are friendly and efficient.
Very enjoyable meal. Smugglers is one of our favourite places to eat.
Great place with very friendly staff . We had a lovely meal and despite how full the restaurant was we were not rushed in anyway
Warm greeting very helpful waitress. Good selection of food on the menu plus the carvery. Lovely for a family meal
All your staff are so helpful and cheery. Loved the car very and especially the very tasty pork cobbler
