Characterful pub where some of the friendly locals drink and help add to the charm. Small and higgledy pigeldy! Room was small and modernised without losing its charm. Underfloor heating in bathroom was a nice touch. Stayed two nights and ate in the restaurant both nights as food and service was so good. (Not a lot of choice in immediate... More

We booked a weekend break at the Rising Sun to celebrate my birthday. We haven't stayed in Lynton/Lynmouth before, and usually head to Croyde, but the lovely location, friendly staff and wonderful food at the Rising Sun definitely means we'll be back. From start to finish the staff were, without exception, friendly and helpful. The room was not huge, but... More

We went to the Rising Sun for lunch on a flying visit to Lynmouth. Made to feel very welcome and the whitebait was delicious. I had a pint of Exmoor Gold - one of the better ales out there. Toilets were also new and clean. Dogs welcome.

Great service from beginning to end of stay. Staff very friendly and attentive. Our room was small but perfectly formed with lovely touches like top quality teas and biscuits, replaced daily... which is perfect for a tea-alcoholic! We went to The Rising Sun as the sea food was highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. The seafood sharing platter starter was... More

Mussels, clams, crab and lobster steamed in the most delicious broth I've ever tasted. Combined with great service and a beautiful view over the harbour this was my most memorable dining experience in the UK.
