We called at the Hunters Inn for lunch, and chose the steak pie with mash and veg. Reading some of the other reviews of the Hunters Inn, I cannot believe that we were in the same place. The pie was made in a large tray and cut into squares, the meat was dry and overcooked if you got an edge piece, the pastry was pretty thick and a bit tough, and the whole pie was just about warm enough but not hot. The mash wasn't warm at all ( I wasn't convinced it was real potato). Having been walking, we were pretty hungry so we ate it anyway. And yes, we did complain to the waitress but we didn't see her again, so presume that she wasn't really interested. We didn't stay in the hotel, so can't comment on that, but at the time we were there the pub wasn't terribly busy.
I got the impression that they were serving the sort of food they think walkers enjoy, but I expect a bit more than lukewarm food that looks like a school dinner slapped onto a plate.
The ploughmans looked nice, although I'm not sure I'd rush to return. Nice location, though.

- The Hunters Inn pub is blessed with the most magical setting, tucked at the bottom of the exquisitely beautiful Heddon Valley on Exmoor.
