My wife and I popped in on a wet Sunday evening whilst returning to ilfracombe, intending to have meal after first having a "drying off" drink. Entered via Bar and waited for a young chap who had seen us enter to cease entering details on the electronic till. He just kept pressing more buttons without any eye contact or so...

I am sorry that your experience was disappointing and would like give you some background information. Having made some enquiries I learn that the young chap concerned was unwell and had to go home before the end of service. He had been moved off waiting duties to the bar as he was unable to cope with the level of service...

We first stayed at the Hunters Inn 30 years ago and have been back a few times now over the intervening years. Last time was 5 years ago when the new dining area with picture window had been created. We have just returned from a stay over the August Bank holiday. Wow it's got even better, the bar has been...

How wonderful that you have visited the Hunters Inn so many times over the last 30 years. Over that period there have been many changes as you say, and we have very much continued in this vain. We have invested time and money into the fabric of the building because we feel that the Hunters is living history, a place...

Amazing place, peaceful, far away from traffic, very helpful staff, the best english breakfast we ever had. Great starting point if you want to visit North Devon. Heddon's Mouth just 20 min walk from Hunters Inn. Beautiful views!

Your comments are very kind and much appreciated by all the staff. If you want a destination that is away from it all then the Hunters Inn will certainly fit the bill! Traffic and crowds we don't have, just clean air and beautiful surroundings and at the end of the day a pint in the warm surroundings of the Hunters...

We stayed in sunflower lodge. It's attached to the hotel but fine self catering facilities. Which worked well as the bride stayed with us on the eve of her wedding and prepared with us next morning - lots of tea coffee - and champagne. The setting is spectacular, the staff most obliging and friendly. All was so well thought out...

Thank you for the review of the Hunters Inn that you kindly posted. It was lovely that you could all stay together, the night before Lisa's wedding in Sunflower Lodge. It has now been open for a year and is proving to be very popular, all year round. The day of the wedding was unbelievably hot with clear skies, perfect...

The Hunters Inn is in a stunning location, with wonderful walks & drives nearby. When we visited lunch service had just finished so we contented ourselves with a Cream Tea, portions were excellent with large scones, plenty of good preserve & cream & good hot coffee & tea, my only niggle was that scones had been warmed in the microwave...

Thank you for your review of our 'Dull Gastro Pub' The Hunters Inn used to have appalling toilets, threadbare carpet, flock wall paper and lighting so bad it was difficult to read a menu. If that is your idea of an atmospheric pub there are many more just like it for you to frequent. We have relocated the original bar...

We wanted to visit Heddon's Mouth so took a small road that turned into a track. At the point that it almost seemed to run out we came across this beautiful pub. The location is glorious, the gardens lovely and it is a mile to walk to a beautiful cove.

A truly beautiful location up in the hills. Inn is stunning to look at. Inside is clean and comfortable and spacious. We had room 4, basic twin but was lovely. It has a balcony with great views, but it did have some stagnant water around it which wasn't nice. Shower room lovely. Beds comfy. Free bottled water, tea, coffee, biscuits....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hunters Inn pub is blessed with the most magical setting, tucked at the bottom of the exquisitely beautiful Heddon Valley on Exmoor. The narrow road from the moor descends beneath a canopy of ancient trees. Sun-dappled leaves glitter and gleam. The river runs past the inn and a short walk takes you to the beach. ... more   less
