After a great day at the beach we loaded up and went for dinner at the Smugglers inn, family friendly and dogs allowed, great choice of drinks and ale, we had steak and the kids both had burgers and the portions were huge! In fact 1 burger would have been enough for both of them as it would have saved... More

Visited The Smugglers Inn this August 2015 and from the minute we walked in they seemed totally uninterested in serving us and not very friendly at all and we may as well have been invisible, only seemed interested in their regulars.

Took the dog for a walk at seaton beach and we saw the dog friendly sign and decided to stop for tea with the Mrs. Went in and didn't think much of the place itself but the team were friendly and then the food came out which was great. Going back soon

Really good portions & good value , good choices on menu & specials board , had fresh looe crab sandwich , which was delicious & very chunky , with homemade chips and salad , the mixed grill was massive , down side was loads of little fly which were very annoying while trying to eat & drink

We have visited the Smugglers Inn in Seaton on a few occasions and have always had a lovely meal. They are dog friendly and even the dog gets a treat. They do a lovely roast dinner on a Sunday too. Staff are very friendly and it is ideally situated for a nice dog walk on the beach afterwards.

We stayed in the village for 5 days - self catering with 2 dogs. Very happy to find a dog friendly pub, serving food and showing sporting events on TV. The drinks were good as was the food. The Sunday Lunch in particular was superb (4 veg beautifully cooked) The staff were very pleasant and cheerful. The downside was the... More

Walked out on a rainy Friday from Millendreath... Got to the Smugglers at 11.45 and it was open... So in we popped with two chocolate labradors in tow.. Had a couple of drinks and a bowl of cheesy chips...home made and scrummy... The lady on the bar brought some biscuits over for the dogs too... Will go again :-)

When it comes to eating out, I'm fairly picky, and for this I was expecting your standard pub meal, but couldn't be more impressed with the whole experience. The food was impressive in both standard and quantity, service was more than welcoming, and the atmosphere was perfect. Will be recommending to all family and friends.
