On recently visiting this establishment ( having been here many times before) I was shocked and very disappointed at the lack of welcome, the arrogant manner of the apparent owner ( I have since found out) , the lack of cleanliness and overall lack of knowledge of ales etc available. The impression was that I ought to be grateful that...

Dear gooseegg2017, I'm sorry my service disappointed you on this occasion. Sometimes customers are served out of turn when the bar is crowded and several people are waiting. Occasionally I do not even know a customer requires serving if they are chatting to people at the bar, a polite "excuse me" would rectify this. I do try to welcome everyone...

Although we've been coming to Staghunters for years, this is my 1st review. We recently drove down for the day to walk the dog and drop in for lunch and a pint. On chatting to Simon, behind the bar and as he (unusually for a weekend), had a couple of spare rooms that night, we were offered a good deal...

We love the Stag Hunters - always a great welcome, it just feels lke a home from home. Having just spent a long weekend here again, with some of our family my only problem is that the food is so great - I need to go on a diet for a few days. We shall return again and again.

If you are looking for a traditional country pub for a great pub lunch then Staghunters is your place. With it's low ceilings, log fire and quiet ambience, this was the perfect place for refuelling during an Exmoor hike. The staff were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. You must have village brewed Wicked Wolf Gin - utterly refreshing! I had the...

Want a quiet hotel nestling between a babbling river in front and open countryside behind? Then make your way to The Staghunters Inn/Hotel, owned by the warm and welcoming Wyburn family and just oozing with olde worlde charm in the bar, restaurant and lounge downstairs. Our first floor bedroom and en suite were spotlessly clean and stylishly appointed, with satellite...

A very friendly, family run inn, set in beautiful countryside, where we enjoyed a short stay. The food and facilities were both excellent and the room had everything we needed. We appreciated being able to control the heating and open the window at night. There are some lovely walks directly from the front door.

We were looking for an iconic inn, located along the Coleridge Way (which we were hiking) and this lovely inn was exactly what we hoped it would be. Not only was the room comfortable and well-furnished, but the pub and restaurant are absolutely topnotch: the ales and gourmet meal were fabulous.

Simply perfect, Country pub with a homely feel. Very welcoming & relaxing. Many guests had dogs, if you want somewhere to bring your four legged friend then this is it. Lovely food, all usual pub favourites plus a specials board. We found the portions quite large & delicious. Parking looks limited but proceed down the lane on the left that...

We stayed here for one night whilst doing the Coleridge Way Walk. From checking in we were greeted cordially. The accommodation is situated away from the bar with its own guests sitting room.

Thank you for taking the trouble to review our Hotel favourably. We are glad you enjoyed it more than on the previous occasion. Well we are not over keen on the sachets but changed to them on observing a youngster licking the the top of a sauce bottle so from a hygiene point of view we can't think of anything...
