Go on a Sunday - the roast is terrific, with plenty of veg! Dogs are welcomed not just tolerated. Good pub grub, with a range of specials

Enormous portions, very pleasant staff and a really relaxing experience for all ages. We recently stayed in Milford on Sea for 3 nights and had our evening meals for 3 nights in the Fountain Inn which says it all.

We stayed in holiday accommodation opposite The Smugglers Inn. We popped in one day for a drink and then returned to eat. The staff were all so friendly, we felt like one of the locals! The food was really good and very good value for money. It is advisable to book a table, as it gets very busy.

Plenty of veggie options on an otherwise fairly standard pub grub menu. Decent real ale. Big place, large gardens.
