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.

19 people in our party, the carvery was amazing and the menu catered for all our needs. The only thing that could be improved on would be to offer children's puddings. Thank you for a lovely meal with a great atmosphere and professional service

Was intrigued by reviews but not as impressed as we hoped. The food was ok but nothing spectacular just normal pub grub but for twice the price. The lady serving us was nice and pleasant but they seemed very keen on getting our plates out the way. She came to collect our plates when my partner still had a mouthful of food and literally put his knife and fork down. I wouldn’t come back but at the same time don’t regret trying it.

We always have a carvery at at the Smugglers Inn when we are on holiday in the area. It is one of the best carveries we have been to and never disappoints. We did return a couple of days later and ate in the bar as we had a dog with us. The staff brought some meat trimmings for the dog while we were having our lunch, which we thought was a really nice touch.

I'm so glad there wasn't music in the main dining area. I have a sensory processing disorder and it really does limit where I can go to eat. Thank you so much. If you can keep the music off then we'll definitely be back for a Christmas meal and regular carverys. I can't tell you what it means to be able to eat without a cacophony of noise making me feel unwell. Your staff are kind and the food was delicious. Thank you! :-)

We really enjoyed our carvery on Sunday 14th October and the service was impeccable. Some of the vegetable side dishes weren’t too our liking but the meat was perfectly cooked and there was a varied selection.

The service provided by those at The Smugglers is of a high standard, staff have excellent interpersonal skills, the premises are clean, food beautiful, the atmosphere is relaxing. This is a business which sets standards rather than follows. Well done everyone, your teamwork and dedication does you credit.

We always make time to visit Smugglers when we are in the area. I wish pubs with a carvery where we live in Swindon, Wiltshire could take a leaf out of your book and just copy what you do! The carvery is always amazing, with tasty locally sourced meat, proper stuffing and proper cauliflower cheese with actual cheese on top too! My local carvery serves something that looks like cauliflower with a white sauce on top, but misses out the cheese in the sauce, nor are there crispy cheesey bits on top. Sacrilege! I wish I caught the waitresses name, a lady in her 40’s with short blonde hair, she was lovely and showed genuine warmth and attention. Always smiled too. Just what you need, for great customer service! We’ll be back !

Being a local we have enjoyed the Smugglers for many years, but having not been for a few months. We found that the changes that have been made are not all good and up to the standard we are used to receiving. The personnel touch has been lost, but the food and drink were up to the usual fantastic standard.
