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.

The food is always excellent at The Smugglers Inn and the staff are a joy. It’s not surprising therefore that my friends and I are regular customers. the Smugglers never disappoints.

We were a group of 4 including my disabled father who also can only eat gluten free food. The staff couldn't have been more helpful which was appreciated by us all. The food was good with a large number of gluten free options.

Once again, a lovely meal with no loud music to stress me out. I really enjoyed my carvery lunch and my girlfriend and I will be coming back regularly. We're hoping to have a group Christmas meal with some friends too.

First time we visited purely because our usual place wasnt available. How glad were we that this was the case lovely food great polie associates and although we didnt have the carvery we could tell it was quiet poplular with the locals somthing we will be trying next time we return. The smugglers inn is going to be our new place to go when visiting the area.
