The Smugglers Inn
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.

Delicious food and a lovely helpful waitress highly recommended this pub definitely will be returning
10/10, prompt and excellent service, food was out of this world. Enjoyed by all followed by a walk on the beach. Perfect Sunday
Very friendly staff, had the Sunday carvery and as usual it was very good, all nicely cooked and great taste would recommend going her but book your table on a Sunday
The food is amazing down at the Smugglers but they let themselves down on the service.
Not only were we sat at a coffee table for a carvery and told that there were no other tables even though there were empty tables for the whole time we were there but we were also left.
Not once were we checked on to see if the meals were ok and nobody came back to see if more drinks were required.
When the main course plates were taken away nobody came back to see if we wanted desert. We waited twenty minutes, walked to the bar, paid and left.
Brilliant food and service couldn't do e ough for you
The service was absolutely lovely. The members of staff were so friendly and kind. Lovely food. Chilled environment. Peaceful for dogs. My dog is a nervous dog but was really relaxed there. Would recommend.
Best carvery I’ve had ! Food was delicious , easy to book the table waitress straight over Offering drinks
we were recommended the smugglers to go to for a carvery and we certainly were not disappointed and look forward to returning very soon
We love the food at the Smugglers! The team there is efficient and friendly, and the location is superb!
We have had a great time with lovely food thankyou
visited The Smuggglers new years day for the curry buffet. Very dissapointed as it had no flavour and tasted like a casserole not a curry ☹ then to top it off a group of 6 students came in and the language coming from them was foul. ended up leaving as we had a small child in earshot and I was about to lose it!
Starter was great but unfortunately main let it down . We all left food on our plate. Batter on fish and onion rings too thick ...burger a bit tough and curry a bit tasteless shame as portion sizes large but no point being large if not enjoyable and eatable
Very welcoming . Wonderful fish and chips, and enjoyed the mulled cider.
Best carvery you'll ever eat. Unreal choice of meat and veg
Great Meal Tonight
We dined at the Smugglers Inn for my husbands birthday. The food (we had carvery) was amazing and the staff were so friendly and couldn’t do enough for you. Will definitely return very soon!!
Have to admit I felt like I had overindulged after dessert but it was too good to miss!!!!
It was our first time here and it was very cosy sat by the roaring log burner with all the Christmas decorations up.
We enjoyed the pork and sirloin steaks - a lovely, reasonably priced meal and we were well looked after whilst we were there.
We will definitely be back next time we visit. Thankyou :-)
Lovely meal. Eat here often. Staff very friendly.
Fantastic Carvery, I have recommended it to everyone.
Dinner was excellent, lovely meat great choice of veg
But it was cold
Lovely food and great service
Absolutely excellent!! Cannot fault anything 😊 the food was delicious, vegan and vegetarian was well catered for. The service was excellent, attentive without being in your face. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. What more can anyone ask 😁
We have eaten at the smugglers Inn a few times this year while on holiday.
28/11/21 we travelled just under a hr, to enjoy one of their curverys.
All the food served throughout the year has been lovely, we can not fault the quality of food or service.
I wanted some where that did a nice steak for my husband’s birthday, the Smugglers didn’t disappoint, it was a lovely relaxed meal.
Best carvery we have had, if your really hungry go for the extra. Staff are very friendly and professional, happy to help and overall great value for money in our view.
Amazing carvery, definitely the best around!
It was very busy which is good as I guess it shows it’s a popular place but in my opinion some of the tables were really close together which made it seem really noisy and on top of each other
Great place for locals and visitors alike.
Good carvery but it was missing the pigs in blankets yes I dont care its not xmas yet thats what I like , great service from polite & friendly staff and most importantly - no hospital masks ! so we can have service with a smile, eat our food and not feel like we are going for some sort of medical procedure like we did at Watergate Bay hotel last weekend which looked like an operating theatre full of faceless mask zombies.
Usually carvery is quite dry and not nice but they have done a good job here not over cooked it, get in early because there was a que of people around the pub - a que of nice people btw, good crowd here and no issues with our two kids who are extremely badly behaved unf.
We are local, great to see a nice local place - see you again soon and thank you
The staff were lovely, the atmosphere was very friendly and the food was to die for.
Best carvery we've probably ever had!
Highly recommend to everyone.
excellent as usual....second time in as many weeks
Really enjoyed the food and I love they allow dogs in my dog loved being in in the warm. Staff friendly. Over all o will definitely be going back.
Booked at 1pm, no one took an order until 1:30 (despite asking if we should order at the bar) and food not served until 2:30! Food was ok but it wasn't even very busy and the wait wasn't worth it.
friendly staff, tasy food will definitely return soon
A lovely pub restaurant, lovely atmosphere the staff were very polite and friendly And the food was fantastic, would Definitely recommend to others.
Fast service...I had the large Carvery and I was very impressed,The beef was lovely and the gammon superb...and all the veg five star...my partner had the standard Carvery and it was more than enough...We give it a massive 👍
We love everything about you all
Try and come as often as possible but live in Hampshire 😍
Definitely one of the best carveries I have ever had!
We had a table for 4 adults booked for the Sunday carvery. Everyone thought that the food was terrific even to the point where we thought it was the best Carvery we ever had !!!! Excellent will def book again
Their Sunday carvery is second to none and good value
