At the beginning of October eleven members of Exeter Branch met for lunch at one of our more regular venues, The Smugglers Inn on the hills near Dawlish. It was a joy to see the sunshine and to have a clear view out to sea after the rain and cloud many of us living inland had experienced during the morning. We were joined by four local members, two of whom were within walking distance of this popular pub!
Our group made the most of the Smugglers’ large and varied menu, with some choosing lighter dishes, others opting for one of the specials and many favouring the popular carvery. Puddings proved popular too, as can be seen from the photograph!
Located towards the west of our area and with its pleasant outlook, extensive menu, large car park and nearby bus stops it is likely that The Smugglers will remain on our list of favourite pubs for Exeter Branch lunches.
