We went here on a Sunday night and had a fantastic meal, excellent value, good sized portions and served by friendly staff. The atmosphere and interior of this pub is cosy and welcoming, we will definitely return.

We’ve visited Pevensey three times so far. Love the area but this was the first visit where we’d actually been in The Smugglers. Great pub, friendly locals and the good is excellent. Very enjoyable evening out on our last day.

Visited with friends and we all had the fixed menu @ £11.50. Good honest pub grub, great service and camaraderie with the landlady. Some unusual beers/lagers on tap which are worth trying. The pub is also ‘dog friendly’ which was great for us.

We always enjoy this pub. Fabulous in the summer sitting out in the garden with the kids and come Christmas it always feels so seasonal and warm and cozy.
