We visited as a party of wedding guests and had all the rooms as a family for four days.The rooms were comfortable particularly the family room, which was a good size. We had most of our meals in the restaurant and the quality and quantity of the food was excellent. The Manager, Kieran, who has sadly just left, was very...

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...

We stopped by for the carvery at the end of August. The food was ok and the young man serving at the carvery was pleasant and happy. The bar staff and staff in the restaurant area couldn't have been more disinterest, rude and really gave off a feeling of customer service didn't matter all. Even yawning whilst serving.

Thank you for your comments, sorry to hear that you didn't have a pleasant experience on this occasion. I'm sure that the staff weren't disinterested or rude but as you can appreciate in a busy restaurant with many things to do it could appear that way. Many other comments on here praise our staff both in efficiency and helpfulness and...

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.

Visited with family for lunch and enjoyed our meal very much. There is a carvery or order from the menu. Various offers throughout the week apparently. Friendly staff and would visit again. Limited parking but close to a car park. Convenient for the seafront.

“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.”
