Welcoming and friendly pub with views towards the beach. We had the Sunday lunch carvery which was delicious with a choice of three meats, good choice of vegetables and yummy gravy. We called again later in the week and had another tasty meal with generous portions. Will call again when next in the area. This review relates to the pub...

The Smugglers continues to provide excellent food at reasonable prices,good service and varied menu. The deep fried capers were a delight and a surprise addition to the beer battered cod but not to husbands taste. Recommend a visit.

Friendly pub just across from the beach serving traditional pub food reasonably priced, with large inside and outside eating areas. We had the curry of the day with poppadom and nan bread, which was a little bland but still tasty. We would return if in the area again.

Great little pub right on the beach at Seaton. I expected it to be expensive as it's only one Of three food outlets but I was wrong. I usually go to the beach cafe across the road but it was closed at 4.45! I'm so glad it did though as I wouldn't have found this little treasure! Food was stunning...

I stayed here for work but ended up having a lovely time with locals and landlady/ landlord. Fabulous friendly environment. This pub has been recently taken over by the landlady and landlord who are introducing a new menu and environment to this wonderful local pub. They offer B+B as well. The rooms are cosy and clean and the service is...

Had a great ice cream and service from this inn. Lady couldn't have been nicer and more helpful when I asked for ice cream on a cold February afternoon! Looking forward to trying the food! Good access for wheelchairs.

Friendly staff. We had the Sunday Carvery which was reasonably priced. Would go again if we were in the area. We arrived approximately at noon and the restaurant soon started to get very busy. Adequate parking nearby and close to the beach.

“Again this is not really applicable as it is not a hotel but an Inn. The family room and front double best for size and view.”
