"Great pub, excellent food"

We found this pub by chance on our first day visiting Milford. This pub is always busy (a good sign) so always make a reservation. Child friendly, with play area. Quality of the home cooked food was excellent. Both menu and drinks, pricey but the portions more than make up for it, they are huge... read more

My favourite Milford pub ! Great atmosphere, great food and a lovely garden for when we have nice weather. Cosy in the winter with a real fire. Best to book at the weekend as it gets busy. I had the roast beef dinner last weekend which was delicious.

Lovely pub, huge garden. Although we never ate here, the food did look great. Atmosphere was fantastic, although there was a party going on in the pub garden, so I couldn't be sure if it was always as atmospheric.

I've been visiting this particular part of the country for a decade and yet this trip was the first time I've been into the Smuggler's Inn and I have to say - what a very pleasant experience it was too. The first visit was on a Monday around 7pm when the pub was very busy but the staff still managed... More

Found this pub on TripAdvisor, and it was a good choice. The pub was very busy but we got the feeling it is a local favorite. The pie supper was excellent, I would highly recommend this pub.

Popped in here for dinner on first day of short break. We were lucky to get the last table as lots were reserves by locals. Reasonably priced menu. Fast service seeing as it was so busy on a Tuesday early evening. Lovely food. Couldn't fault it. Nice garden. Dogs welcome. Would visit again.

bar area dark and dingy, large garden with enclosed play area. Menu limited and pricey, drinks were also expensive. On reflection maybe our opinion as pub was extremely busy so must suit lots of people. Not our choice of place to return to.

We ate tea here tonight. 2 adults and 2 children. Adults food ok but children's macaroni cheese very disappointing - it wasn't a normal cheesy white sauce it was very greasy and all you could taste was English mustard. 2 members of staff spoken to neither of whom seemed that bothered. Didn't order anything else and wouldn't return as a... More
