Nestling beside Seaton green and just 50 yards from the beach, The Smugglers Inn is a family and dog friendly pub that prides itself on offering a traditional selection of classic pub fayre, cooked by our enthusiastic team of chefs, using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.

Along with the classics, we have a continually updated Specials Board where our chefs love to show their flare and creativity.

The highlight of our culinary week is undoubtedly our Sunday Carvery. Routinely described by our regular customers as ‘The best roast in the area’, with a selection of 3 roast meats, crispy roast potatoes, an amazing selection of 7 vegetables, plus homemade Yorkshire puddings and gravy, it is a truly sumptuous feast to end your week!

Vegetarians are also well catered for, with many of our dishes available with a vegetarian option, including our carvery which comes with TWO homemade vegetarian choices – a delicious nut roast and a vegan lentil roast.

    Six of us plus my dog came for lunch to celebrate a birthday. A varied menu with plenty of choice and without exception everyone really enjoyed their meal. On a cold wet day the open fire was cheerful and welcoming and the staff were pleasant and helpful. We live on the Peninsula and will definitely be back.

    Best Sunday lunch that I have eaten for a long time, plenty of meat spuds & veg plus proper gravy. Ideal place to take the whole family & dog (even they get their own plate). Total value for money, but book else you'll be disappointed

    Love this place, never had a bad meal there. Carvery is second to none and I’m fussy. Staff polite, pleasant and very helpful. Would like the jam and coconut sponge back but had the chocolate cake as a substitute and it didn’t disappoint. Very dog friendly even has a doggy menu.

    It was nice, even having to sit outside, had shelter from rain, it was a little chilly, but food was warm. Veg tasted like fresh not frozen, biggest Yorkshire puddings ever. Staff friendly, dog friendly, nice place to eat after a walk on the beach.

    Absolutely disgusted that we were promised a table, I then put menus on the table then went outside to collect my partner and children and by the time I had come back in (less then 5 mins) the staff had given away our table. No other tables available so me and my hungry family then took our services else where, where things are alot more organised! will not be returning

    The pub is very clean and well kept. The staff were friendly and efficient and service was quite quick. The food was good pub standard and the menu adequately varied to suit most tastes. Having childs portion option was helpful to one of our party with small appetite, and vegetarian option also useful. Dog friendly with doggie menu another bonus. Overall it was most satisfactory unpretentious comfortable meal.

    Bit of a wait between being seated and being served even just for a drink, we could have gone to the bar but there was a very long queue as so many people were still using the outside tables. However, the waitress was pleasant and as soon as we had ordered our carvery, she came straight back with our ticket, and we made our way up. Choice of four meats and plenty of it when sliced, also lots of choice of veg and all nice and fresh even at just before 2pm. All in all, a very enjoyable and plentiful meal in busy but pleasant surroundings - would definitely return again.
