We have just returned from another wonderful stay at Staghunters. As always the warmest of welcomes from the Wyburn family and staff. Excellent, good value food, clean and comfortable rooms with well kept gardens and riverside seating. Staghunters is a great place to access the joys of Exmoor or to just enjoy the village. In reception all the thank you...

On this occasion, we were here with family and friends to celebrate my husband's 65th. We seem to have at least one "special birthday" every year! I can safely say that friends and family continue to be impressed by the wonder of Staghunters – it truly is a haven of hospitality, beauty and general “wonderfulness”!! Even after more than 20...

A little gem in a beautiful setting. The hotel is old and has quirky rooms but all the staff and locals treat you like family. This was born out by the other guests who told me they are frequent visitors. The food is scrumptious and special dietary requirements are catered for. All this and dog friendly too.

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?

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.
