We have just arrived home from a long weekend the Valentines evening was the best we have ever experienced, the Food, Drink and Staff were excellent, we will be booking next year. It is an old building with a lot of character and situated in a lovely part of Devon

I have been here on a couple of occasions both for lunch and dinner! The service in here is constantly good as is the food and the menu is well thought out. The drinks selection is nice especially if you like ales. Altogether id keep coming back wit every visit to lunmouth and the surrounding areas.

Stayed here in September 2014. Room was small but very well appointed. The view from the bedroom window was to the North overlooking the harbour. The bed was comfortable and the room was kept spotless. It is an ancient inn with old floors, walls and joists. It has wonderful history. There is a quite sitting room away from the bar... More

The Rising Sun is a lovely place to stay, but very expensive nearly £7.00 for a glass of wine and £3.85 for a pint of cider. I found the food prices quite high, I ordered the scallops for a starter on the Saturday night and nearly fell off my chair when it was brought up three of the tiniest scallops... More

Our Wine is served in measures of 175ml or 250ml. Prices start from £4.40 for 175ml glass up to £6.90 for 250ml glass,... More

Had a wonderful stay here. Food amazing with a great menu, service outstanding and a good variety of drinks. This place has everything but parking, although in January it's not a problem. Shower in our room was also great as was the room. Clean warm and cannot fault the place. I would love to come back.
