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.
Not been for a while but it never disappoints good food good service. And now it’s so easy to book on line. Nick and the staff are wonderful.
Booked from London 3 weeks before coming to Dawlish on holiday just to make sure i could get a table for the Sunday roast and it was delicious 😋
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.
Lovely helpful staff Food perfect.
Excellent value and exemplary service. Thank you
lovely views with good atmosphere and good food only let down by the noise from the road outside
Excellent as always. Good Food, Friendly staff and good value.
Excellent in all ways. Memorable and.next year when we return to Dawlish we will come back
Excellent food and staff outstanding
I never made a booking for this date. I never turned up. This is the second false booking attributed to me. Your system is not working
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!!
Superb food, served with a smile very quick service.
Friendly, welcoming, good quality food and red wine. Will probably always eat here when visiting
As usual excellent food and service
Friendly , helpful staff even though they were very busy. Will come again sometime.
Excellent restaurant great food and fab service
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.
Great family place. Friendly atmosphere, lovely friendly staff, brilliant food with big portions and good value for money
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
Very accommodating and the deserts were very good value for money!!
The lady at the bar was very efficient and nice The food was excellent quality and tasted delicious we would highly recommend
