Pie and Ale Festival
The Smugglers Ale and Pie festival is back again for its 19th year in 2018! The festival will take place over the first May bank holiday Friday 4th -Monday 7th May.
Trebellan Park is usually a tranquil, quiet place but the ale and pie festival sees us turned into an all round busier, livelier affair! So once all the good fun of the weekend is over why not stay on a few extra days for some well earned rest and relaxtion once the party is over and we have reverted back to normal.
Ales, ales and more ales and some cider too!
The pub is keeping its cards close to its chest at the minute and just releasing details slowly to tease us all but last year they had 80 fine ales and 20 ciders to choose from so you can expect that or more this year. Great for any real ale enthusiast or fans of a good West Country Cider.
So far the Smugglers have just released Friday nights headliners but you can expect fantastic headliners every night and also live bands throughout the afternoon. Music starts around midday and goes on until 11pm/12 midnight. The afternoons usually see more acoustic and folky sets and the evenings get livelier with some bigger names.
Friday 4th May
Fridays headliners released so far – Daisy Clark, Funke and the Two Tone Baby and The Mighty Offbeats.
Keep a check on the Smugglers Den Inn facebook page or their website for more releases.
Pies and food
There will be a selection of handheld pies of various fillings for sale in the beer tent (handy for holding a pint aswell!) and also the pub menu available inside (booking advisable).
The Wild Food Kitchen will also be back onsite where Matt will be cooking his fabulously tasty burgers (Cornish steak, wild boar, pulled pork – just some of the offerings), Falafels, fries and more during the day and evening and much needed breakfast baps and coffee in the mornings.
Camping and accommodation
After drinking all those ales you don’t want to have to drive so why not book a pitch with us to camp or park your campervan for the weekend. Pitches are still available.
If you’re a couple and fancy some more luxury we still have caravan available for the weekend, min stay 3 nights. Sorry no groups in the accommodation.
