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.

Visited on a Saturday evening and had a really delicious carvery with a large number of vegetable choices and three meats. This was followed by some lovely desserts - an enormous sundae and the luscious Malteser cheesecake. The service was excellent and very friendly. We are relatively local and will definitely be back. Thank you.

Been having family get together at the Smugglers for some years, everything’s of a good standard, only complaint this year was the raw cauliflower cheese.
