Had two of the Smugglers Sunday roasts in the evening. Excellent and well cooked meat and vegetables, proper yorkie puds and gravy. Good ambience, friendly and obliging staff. Number of other people dining there attracted our attention, and that observation was born out with a lovely meal. Will definitely be back when in area. P.S. Good selection of liquid refreshment...

Can't fault this pub. Staff friendly, good lovey, good choice, reasonable price, children made welcome. It's in the heart of the village though and gets very busy so pop in and reserve your table early enough. You can either park at pub or at seafront and walk back (about 5 mins). Would definitely visit again.

The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Both the customers and staff were very friendly and had no problem with me bringing in my well behaved dog to snooze under the table while we ate. It was a beautiful, but breezy evening, so most people were inside instead of enjoying the good sized garden. The dining room was busy considering it... More

While staying nearby, we decided to take our evening meals here and both nights the food was really good. We had to wait quite a while the first night, but the pub was really busy. We have visited many times in the past while visiting the area, so our recent visit most certainly won't be the last, as the food... More

The Smugglers Inn is a cosy pub with a good standard of pub grub. My prawn salad was plentiful and tasty, and my companion enjoyed her vegetarian lasagne.

Excellent Inn with nice service and good food. For several time we had dinner there during our stay at Milford in June and it was fine each time, tasty food and nioce service, we would definitely come back again if we would be another time in Milford.
