The Smugglers Inn Herne

Welcome to The Smugglers Inn, Herne

A warm welcome awaits at this friendly village pub

If you're looking for a traditional pub in a beautiful village, then welcome to The Smugglers Inn, Herne. We're proud to say that we've won awards for our cellar, our 'small garden of the year', and as a community pub.

Inside, you'll find a great bar serving an excellent selection of Shepherd Neame lagers and ales, as well as a great selection of ciders, wines, spirits and soft drinks. Outside, you'll find a beautifully-kept garden, with a covered area for those rainier days and nights!

If you love traditional pub games, you'll find a pool table and dartboard indoors, along with dominoes, cards and board games. If you're a bat and trap fan, you'll find a pitch in the garden.

We also host live music gigs and quiz nights, among other activities. Get in touch today, or pop in to see us, to find out what's coming up soon.
