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.
Go to the Smugglers ever time I visit my parents. The Atmosphere is good and the staff are always helpful. The service is fast and the food is at the standard that I would expect from the Smugglers. Another fantastic meal, please pass on my thanks to all your staff whether front of house or kitchen. Well done.
Very nice meal and good service. Pleasant staff.
Everything about the smugglers was very very good. Will definitely go again.
Always have a good time even if sometimes it is very full of people and a bit difficult to move about with an elderly guest.
Used to go their 15 years ago when lived in area still as good
Good pub grub at a reasonable price, drinks are a little expensive but a lovely setting in the summer, all this pub needs is a bit of investment internally as very dated, so a refurbishment must be on the cards surely!!
Friendly and welcoming staff. Very good carvery.
We have always used smugglers for special occasions and have done so for the last 20 years. The food hasn’t been great for the last 2 possibly 3 years but this year was definitely the worst. Beef was cold and the gravy was so thick and salty it was inedible. Very sadly a family tradition is now broken as we won’t be back until it’s under different management
As always, another superb meal at the Smugglers.
We were staying at Shaldon for a few days and came to the Smugglers Inn for our wedding anniversary meal.We couldnt have chosen a better place from start to finish it was delightful. The staff were excellent nothing was to much trouble for them and very helpful.The carvery was the best we have had for along time what a difference to some we have had in Birmingham everything was fresh and cooked to perfection.We sat in the bay window with our little dog as its dog friendly which was nice.Would we go back there again we certainly would for at any time whilst in that area. Cant fault it full marks highly recommended

As usual the meal (carvery) was superb. Shame Avocet wasn't on the beer menu, but the other beers were a good substitute.
Lovely delicious food, value for money and friendly helpful staff. Will definitely be returning.
