Tucked into the picturesque rolling countryside that is in the small hamlet of Treballan, you will find this 16th-century old cottage steeped in history and culture.  Found just outside Cubert and less than a 15-minute drive away from the main town of Newquay, The Smuggler’s Den Inn is definitely a place to visit.

In the past, this 16th-century establishment used to be a hangout and centre of smuggling in this side of Cornwall who was famous for its ales and other local drinks.  Today, it’s a popular tourist destination for both young and old who wish to experience the country life and the beauty of the countryside of provincial Cornwall.   It’s also not very far from the sea so those who come and visit can also take a very short drive to the beach and enjoy the seaside view.

The Smuggler’s Den Inn is quite famous for its selection of local and real ales, fine wines and entertainment.  The pub offers classic pub drinks and dishes and the perfect place to relax and enjoy time with friends and with the locals.  They also offer some traditional pub dishes for lunch or dinner where you can enjoy at the bar, restaurant or outside at the terrace that has a stunning panoramic view of the countryside.

The pub and restaurant also offers a selection focused on seasonal produce and meals form Cornish artisan producers.  With such a great selection of food and drinks, it’s no wonder it’s a popular destination of both local and international tourists.  Some of the popular items on the menu include fish pie, Moules frites and the famous Smugglers burger.  The pub also showcases some of the best suppliers in Cornwall such as a selection of pork from The Primrose Herd, Aberdeen Angus Steaks from the butchers of Angus Trotters and even fresh bread from Baker Tom.

You can also book their private function room that is a great place for meetings, parties and other private events.  It’s also a popular place to hold weddings or a drinks reception.  It’s very versatile for people’s event needs and even comes with a fantastic view of the valley towards Holywell Bay. The private function room is a separate area from the pub itself so it’s private enough away from the public but also close enough so that you can tailor-fit and customize your dining experience.  It even has its own bar area, an enclosed terrace and separate parking to meet all your needs.

The pub and restaurant is also quite famous for regularly holding different kinds of events such as quiz nights, ale festivals, and many more.  They also have live band performances from time to time so it’s really a great place to relax and have fun.  Whether you are an individual, a couple of even a family, the Smuggler’s Den Inn is definitely a place to stop by and enjoy.
