Dining Out in Rackenford, Devon

The Stag Inn, Rackenford

Map showing The Stag Inn, Rackenford

The Stag Inn is recorded as the oldest public house in Devon. Dating back to 1197. This wonderful thatched pub is in the village of Rackenford, about a mile off the main A361 Tiverton to South Molton road.

Re-established in 2007 after an extensive refurbishment the inn has gained a good reputation for its food, service and hospitality.

The bar is open lunchtime and evening and all day in the summer for drinks - two brews from the Exmoor Brewery are the cask ales. Meals are served in either the oak-floored dining room or in the bar, along with a large decked area outside for patrons to enjoy.

Under the management of Sophie, a local lady, and her mother Kate, the Stag is thriving with food and drink of excellent quality. Sophie's family own and run a nearby organic farm, West Yeo, and a great deal of the produce that goes into Matt's kitchen comes from that source. Organic beef, organic lamb, organic chickens, organic pork and more.

Food is served from 12 to 2.30 and from 6.30 to 9.00 every day except Sunday evening. The Stag is closed Sunday evening.
