Description
The Smugglers Inn provide a full lunch and evening menu alongside our famous 'Farmers Feast Carvery' every day of the week. Situated in the beautiful town of Dawlish in Devon, you can expect to be surrounded by stunning panoramic views of the ocean and the surrounding countryside. A view that is not to be missed. We are also home to some of the best Real Ales and cider on the market including Dartmoor Legend, Teignworthy Reel and our guest pump which changes on a regular basis. We also have a full wine list and a fantastic variety of soft drinks. There is something for everyone. If you would like to book a table with us you can do so in a number of ways: - Telephone: We don't always get a chance to pick up the phone, so please leave a detailed message. We go through our answer phone messages twice daily. - Email: We respond to emails every morning. NB Please don't assume that your booking is confirmed until we have confirmed until we have actually called you back. Thank you.
