The Smugglers’ Den Inn, housed in a stunning 16th-century thatched building, is a delightful destination pub. A visit to this charming eatery is well worth the journey. Not only does The Smugglers’ offer quality ale and tasty cuisine, it also boasts a view that will take your breath away.
The Smugglers’ truly is a pub for all seasons. Guests can warm up by the log fires during winter, while in summer visitors can dine al fresco in the beer garden (which has a children’s play area) or on the large deck to enjoy the surrounding landscape. From the deck there’s access to the function room, which can be privately hired for business meetings and special occasions – including weddings, for which they are fully licensed. The popular Real Ale & Pie Festival held here on the first May bank holiday weekend is a must; it showcases around 80 ales and 20 ciders along with good food and music. On Friday the 19th and Saturday the 20th of October the pub holds SmugFest, when the pub comes to life with live music, great food, and a selection of lager, ale, and cider. The extensive menu sits alongside daily specials and a great Sunday roast offering.
A seasonal pizza and grill restaurant opens daily from 2.30pm during the peak season and offers both indoor and al fresco dining. Keep up with the latest offers and events by following The Smugglers’ Den on Facebook.
