A Restorative Solution for a 12th Century Pub

The Stag Inn, Rackenford is well known for being one of the oldest pubs in Devon. UK Hardwoods supplied the real wood flooring, joinery timber and oak posts used during this renovation, reinstating the pub’s presence in the south west.

Open from Wednesday to Sunday they offer a light lunchtime menu using fresh produce. Their evening menu has been well considered, changing daily and following the seasons, using only produce that has been grown within the local vicinity. Specials include Devon venison, Exmoor goat and free-range veal.

The interior has been designed and crafted by the owners Steve and Oliver, who decided to work with UK Hardwoods using solid Oak flooring and Oak posts throughout the pub.

Steve and Oliver wanted to use a sympathetic approach to restoring the pub using materials that were locally sourced as they traditionally would have been when the pub was built in the 12th century. Our solid Character Oak flooring has been used throughout the upstairs of the pub. UK Hardwoods oak posts and lintels compliment the historic interior.

The Stag Inn used UK Hardwoods range of Oak skirting boards and joinery timber to create chairs, tables and benches. The landlords specified 2”  boards to make their symbolic feasting table, which welcomes you as you enter the pub.

Well worth a visit if you’re passing through on your way deeper into Devon or Cornwall, or if you live locally, join The Stag Inn for a sumptuous supper one evening and to admire our flooring!
