Description: The Smugglers Inn offers a cosy bar, a delightful restaurant and accommodation by the sea at Blue Anchor Bay in Somerset. We are on the edge of Exmoor and the Quantock hills and make a perfect base for walking holidays. The West Somerset steam railway runs through Blue Anchor and the station is just along the road at the end of the bay. Blue Anchor beach is a long sandy beach and is just across the road from the Inn.

“Smuggle me in with you!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

AMAZING food here. We travelled on the railway and googled dog friendly pubs along the line. This one was our first choice and we would go back time and again. Dogs were very welcomed and fed treats. Food is cooked from fresh so be prepared for a little wait compared to other pubs where they just heat up food. The cheesy garlic pizza bread is the size of a small pizza. Baked camenbert is a whole one and antipasti was lush! Staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. New owners had been in for just five weeks when we went (10 May) but seemed to have been there for years it was so professional and homey.

“Great location, good food”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We had a late supper at the Smugglers at Blue Anchor in May 2014. Whilst the premises was quiet, we were well catered for. The food had good presentation, was warm, cooked to a high standard and of good quality. What more do you really want from a restaurant? :)
