Although not staying at the Stag hunters my daughter and I ate there each evening. We went four nights on the trot and enjoyed wonderful home cooked food each night. Although always very busy as the hotel guests take advantage of the very good dinner included tarriff, Richard always managed to seat us and Henry the beagle if we arrived early. (Henry sat on the floor, not on his own chair!) Well behaved dogs are very welcome and many take advantage of this.
There is a very good menu choice and reasonable prices. There are also daily specials, the starters are huge and may satisfy a small apetite on their own. Home made puds, in fact cannot fault anything. Will be back next year I am sure. The family are very welcoming and the atmosphere is great.

Have stayed there twice now, its full of character, lovely rooms,has a welcoming - friendly owner, good food, great beer/ales and is located in a picturesque small village on a white water river.
Idealy situated if you fancy a 4 mile(ish) walk along the fast flowing river to Lymouth

Room Tip: Balcony room are nice especially if the weather is likely to be good. The village is so remote that...

Nothing was too much trouble. From the moment we arrived they were warm and friendly and helped to make our golden anniversary special. They were able to accommodate 15 of us including children for a wonderful meal. Everyone was pleased with the rooms that were allocated, many of which had recently been refurbished. We took advantage of the beautiful setting and set off on a walk to Lynmouth. Later that day we returned and had drinks in the charming bar. At dinner we were led to the idyllic chapel where the staff had laid out special napkins and candles to make our anniversary special. Would highly recommend this to any couple or family, it is a truly wonderful place in a beautiful setting.

Many thanks for a fantastic weekend!

We were having a chilled drink next to the stream on a rare sunny afternoon, when we decided to book a room on the spur of the moment, this meant we got to enjoy the beer garden next to the wonderfull river for the entire afternoon and sample the delightful dinner (the steaks are amazing)cooked by the lovely staff of this hotel, I cannot praise them enough, the resturant and food are delightful and the rooms are up there with some of the best we have stayed in, full of charm and character, and you can fall asleep to the tinkling of the river, the only negatative is that we only got to stay one night! we will be reurning for a long weekend

We've just returned from a wonderful week on Exmoor and although we didn't stay at the Staghunters, this charming location and the courtesy, friendliness and professionalism of the Wyburn family made our holiday special. We used the Staghunters for our evening meals for four nights (after trying it, we wouldn't go anywhere else) and at the end of our break, we felt as though we were leaving old friends. Richard and his team have achieved an ideal balance of professional customer service, (plus excellent food) and have still found time to provide a friendly, fun atmosphere. We were not only made to feel welcome by the Wyburn family, but also by the local customers and other guests at the hotel. We will be returning and will definitely arrange our accomodation here next time. Thanks!

This is how it should be. Set on the river, in the beautifully tranquil village of Brendon, close to the Boone valley, crested by the moors and flanked by the sea - and yet far from traffic and no mobile signal .. the perfect get away! A wonderful family run pace where they really take the time to chat, super food, very warm open fires, welcoming and with an amazing 500 year old chapel! - I also came here with the family for New Years eve ... what a giggle we all had. ps- In the village at night it is amazing to be reminded of what darkness can be, how quiet silence is and the atmosphere a really good pub can provide!

Have just returned from a very pleasant solo break at the dog friendly Staghunters Inn. I was made to feel most welcome by not only the Wyburn family but all members of staff. In fact, all the other guests as well. Several of whom seem to be regulars which must be a good indication of the hospitality offered.
My room was very pleasant and well furnished with what appeared to be a recently refurbished bathroom. My only criticism, and this is most definitely constructive, I would have liked a better television. The rather ancient small portable with poor picture quality was not in keeping with the room.
I enjoyed dinner at the Inn each evening and can particularly recommend the fish and chips, extremely good quality cod cooked to perfection.
Overall, would I go back, most definitely.
