Our first visit to North Devon, exploring the amazing scenery and hidden valleys of Exmoor. We followed the "Hunters Inn" tourist signs for miles along narrow tree lined lanes, thirsty and hungry for a late lunch as it was approaching 3 O'clock on this warm August Saturday afternoon.
An imposing building set in beautiful countryside miles from anywhere with a National Trust visitor centre adjacent.
It was busy, obviously popular with ramblers but looked a bit jaded and dingy as we searched for a table.. with many eating it was making us more hungry for sustenance.
CAN YOU BELIEVE..a popular walkers pub on a tourist trail with NO competition for miles around STOPS SERVING FOOD AT 3pm ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON!! We left in disgust, maybe we could get a sandwich at the NT visitor centere.. but NO. They have an agreement with the pub not to sell food..
- 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
