Great Parking, Enjoy a walk along the beach, in an unusual part of Devon , Lovely food at the Smugglers, trouble is you do not have enough room for a dessert, and you need plenty of time for eating a large plateful of food. I do not think this is a Hotel

Nice pub to eat after walking on the beach. Open for food all day and accept well behaved dogs. All day carvery looks good value but we opted to beer battered fish and chips which was very good. Sauces and mayonnaise come in proper bottles which makes a pleasant change. Excellent special deals on Thursday and Fridays. Well worth a... More

Had a lunchtime meal mid week. Quite busy but staff worked well together and service very good. The carvery is very good value and popular, there are various sizes available and a two course option. The other menu is limited but has the standard pub classics, ham egg and chips are very good.
