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.
Great night with you once again despite the resrictions we are under, all staff attentive and organised, and food top drawer as well, Thank You
A very good and enjoyable meal.
Despite the current restrictions still the best place to eat in Dawlish
I had a carvery and my husband a steak and kidney pudding with carvery vegetables, both meals were delicious. Very covid secure with disposable gloves used at the carvery. The staff were very attentive but also gave us time to look at the menu and sit after the meal. We are local to the smugglers and it never fails to deliver
Brilliant food & lovely friendly service
Very friendly staff.
Great carvery and great service as always. Needed to be a bit more Christmasy. Shame they are closing before Xmas but will be back when they reopen.

A first class pub with very high standards throughout. Thank you all at the Smugglers
Great food . Friendly and helpful staff loooking forward to the reopening after Xmas
Excellent covid precautions. Clean. Staff were very helpful and couldn’t do enough to help.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Excellent food and excellent, friendly service! Felt very safe with all the safety precautions in place during this time. Thanks to Ruth, our waitress for the evening, and all the staff for making our visit a special one. Hope to see you all again when we are next visiting the area from Bournemouth. Steve and Wendy
Excellent friendly service. First class food extremely good value for money. Procedures in place to keep customers and staff safe from Corona Virus, fully compliant and above current rules
Lovely food as always. Smugglers has the best roast in Dawlish. All staff are very welcoming.
always top class food and service
The Atmosphere was a covid problem not Smugglers Inn
Felt very safe with all the COVID arrangements. The usual high standard of food. Just the thing for a pre Christmas cheer up in these difficult times
The Smugglers has all safety measures in place very well. On arrival our temperature was taken hand sanitizer available and we were shown to our table helping ourselves to veg at the carvery we were issued with disposable glove the bill was swiftly staff were very polite and attentive
Love this place lovely staff and great service beautiful food every time we go
Staff very welcoming and nothing to much trouble for them excellent sunday carvery would recommend
A well organised layout felt really safe eating there staff was really fry and helpful
After grabbing the attention of the chef when we walked in, we were kept waiting for several minutes at the desk whilst Pamela typed in an order. She could clearly see we were waiting - it only takes a few seconds to look up from a task and say "I'll be with you soon" rather than guests standing there like lemons. Carvery meats and veg were good, but roast potatoes were hard (perhaps frozen?). It was a long wait for the food, but we understand the extra Covid measures which are in place. We asked for a wine list & were told they were not printed off because of covid - why can you print menus and not wine lists? We were offered a choice of 3 red wines, none of which we wanted. It was my 'Welcome Home' meal with my Mum & sisters after living abroad for 26 years - all in all it was a disappointing evening.
A very good carvery as usual!!
Fantastic, thank you. Also in these times it was very clean and most definitely Covid Safe.
