With a thatched roof, open fires and wall-mounted antlers, The Stag Inn at Rackenford is a real olde-worlde English establishment. Steeped in history, this 12th-century pub is one of the oldest watering holes in the South West. A recent change in hands has led to a revamp that successfully retains its historic feel. Situated just off the A361, The Stag acts as a perfect pit stop for holidaymakers en-route down south.

The new landlords are passionate about serving quality refreshments. A concise range of real ales is available and the smooth taste of Tribute is always on tap. As recommended to keep them in tip top condition, cask beers are kept at a cool 12 degrees centigrade. Those dining here can expect efficient service and wholesome food. Roasted to a delicate dark pink, the well-rested beef joint arrives as a mound of mouth-watering slithers, drizzled with real gravy - the quality of the stuff served here is second to none. Carb lovers will rejoice at the helping of hand-cut chips that accompanies - a generous portion to soak up the jug full of jus.

The pub also benefits from a range of drinking and dining areas. Make the most of summer and sit at one of the outdoor wooden dining tables. The snug is dog-friendly, but there's plenty of room in the canine-free restaurant, too; this oak-floored, exposed-stone dining space transports visitors back to the pub's age-old beginnings.

Bearing in mind its age, it is pleasing to see The Stag renovated, relaunched and reborn. Be sure to swing by this special spot to refuel during your travels
