Hi, this is Nick and Donna here and we would like to welcome you to our beautiful pub and restaurant , The Smugglers Inn.


Hopefully, you have had a little look around the website and have found all the information you need. If not please feel free to either contact us or phone us on 01626862301 and we will help you with your questions.


Please take the time to view The Smugglers Inn with our fantastic Google virtual tour and hopefully you will fall in love with it as much as we have. Well, probably not quite that much.

We were overwhelmed with how busy we became so quickly and how our beautiful restaurant has become so popular with thousands of people.


The people of Dawlish and Teignmouth and surrounding areas have been amazing from day one, supporting us whole heartedly, which has made us well and truly feel part of our new community.


Myself (Nick) and Andrew had many years working together, running
The Smugglers Inn, but in January 2013, Andrew and Pym handed the reins over completely to Donna and myself.




This closed one chapter but it started a brand new one here. We now have
Jimmy Johnson as General Manager and his team of dedicated, caring professional staff in support.


The ethos and professionalism remains the same. We are completely focused and devoted on giving a warm and personable experience at every visit for every guest.


With that in mind, don’t be shy, book yourself a table today and experience
The Smugglers Inn first hand. We look forward to having you join us.

Nick & Donna



In early 2001, Donna and I were looking for a move away from Kent where I was running a large 3 star Hotel. It was time for us to start working for ourselves and be our own bosses.


In February of 2001 we met Andrew and Pym Mogford for an interview and from then we started to look at properties for us to invest in.


We viewed The Smugglers in May of that year and all four of us unanimously knew that
This was the one!”. We put in our offer in June and became proud owners and moved in on 28th October 2001. After a couple of days cleaning, the doors were officially opened on 1st November 2001. We opened the doors with one mission, to make and create
Quality Cuisine In A Relaxed, Family Atmosphere.
