A little pub history

The Smuggler's Rest pub restaurant was formerly known as the Badgers Watch and before that, the Lifeboat Inn, as it funded the first local lifeboat. Situated on Telscombe Cliffs, The Smuggler's Rest provides an ideal place to enjoy the sunset over the sea.

Make a day of it

Our attractive and spacious inn with delightful gardens enjoys a spectacular and unrivalled setting on top of the Telscombe Cliffs in Peacehaven - there are outstanding views over the sea, and cliff top walks.
