If it’s a warm welcome and yummy food you are looking for then this is the place for you. Great menu with just enough choice for everyone without being over whelming and all cooked to a very high standard- the puddings are fabulous!! Friendly staff who really go the extra mile. Can not fault this pub!

Visited here for the first time whilst staying in the area. We booked late and the staff managed to fit us in on a busy Sunday afternoon. The food was amazing and the service was great too. Would definitely return if in the area again.

The Stags Head is a thatched Inn near South Molton. It is in a beautiful unspoilt rural setting.
I took my wife here on her birthday in early January. We had been before and as previously we were welcomed by friendly and attentive staff.
The food was superb. I had a tender steak accompanied by well cooked vegetables. The chips were properly homemade.
My wife had sea bass followed by panna cotta. She enjoyed this very much and was much taken by the wobble on the panna cotta. It took all my effort to stop her licking the plate!
This is my favourite place to eat in North Devon.

As always, the food was excellent, you can't beat their roast lamb on a Sunday!!
Love popping in here for a quick drink and a spot of lunch when possible, the staff are always super helpful and friendly and nothing is ever too much trouble (having a picky eater for a son can be a nightmare) - can't imagine eating a Sunday roast anywhere else... best to book though, they're incredibly popular xx
