Recently visited The Stag Hunters Inn at Brendon whilst rambling between Brendon and Lynton/Lynmouth on Exmoor National Park. Just called in to the bar for a drink at lunchtime as the weather was not too good, and needed to rest some weary legs. Situated in a beautiful area on Exmoor. Muddy boots were welcomed along with dog walkers.Member of staff... More

A friendly welcome from Simon got things off to a good start - he showed us to our room which was clean and attractively presented - it was lovely to find such a spacious en-suite,too. We soon discovered the large garden which can be used by guests as a delightful place to relax - the resident cat may join you... More

The Stag Hunters Hotel is a lovely pub in the middle of a very beautiful spot on Exmoor. It is run by lovely staff who were welcoming and helpful. The rooms are comfortable, some of them (including the one we had) with a beautiful view out to the gardens at the rear. Breakfast was good, as was the service. Recommended!

We needed to stay in the Exmoor area for two nights over the May day bank holiday and we thought we would take our two dogs (first time). Stag hunters came up on a dog friendly search, what a treat, we would highly recommend it. Lovely setting within walking distance of Lynton and Lynmouth. The staff were very friendly and... More

We went with friends for an unplanned meal. A lovely setting in the Valley, very friendly family run Hotel & Restaurant. Very good food at reasonable coast. We would recommend this if you get the chance.
