Smugglers Inn, Blue Anchor, Somerset
If you fancy lunch down by the sea when you’re on the Somerset coast, you wouldn’t go amiss by giving this place a try. Make a day of it, get there on the steam train with the West Somerset Railway and go and spend a few hours on the beach, making sandcastles and playing games. The Smugglers is a nice little pub, with a cosy traditional bar where they serve top notch beers and keep a wood-burner going in the colder months; there’s lots of separate dining areas, giving a lovely intimate feel, and the food is all prepared and cooked in the kitchen, fresh to order. It’s pub grub – cod and chips, homemade beefburger, ham, egg and chips, and that, and on Sundays they do a carvery that’s very popular. There’s a big garden with play equipment and the backdrop is of open fields and hills; like most pubs around these parts it gets busy in the high season, but you know, get there early and you’ll get a table, otherwise book ahead.
