Myself and a few friends went to the Rising Sun and found it to be a real find, nice location, warm cosy environment and great food and real ale. The road leading to it was a bit narrow for large vehicles but the warm welcome from staff and the general ambience was excellent.

Took my elderly mother out to lunch, staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating when I asked if we could share a main course ( my mother has a small appetite)! The food was delicious,, puddings equally good, again very helpful as I am gluten free. Very reasonably priced. Will definitely return, make sure you... More

We stayed at the wonderful Rising Sun on an overnight stop from London to Padstow. We could not fault anything, Room and bathroom were spotless, the owner and staff were very friendly and they obviously have a star in the kitchen, our food was excellent. We were very impressed with the price £145.00 which was our total bill including food... More

This is a lovely place in a beautiful part of the UK. The food is excellent and very well presented. The staff are really friendly and we had a brilliant evening. It may be a little bit more expensive than an average pub but this is above average and would not hesitate to visit again as felt it was well... More

We were so impressed with the friendliness of staff, excellent service and quality of food, we booked again on the Friday eve. Thank you... More

When I went to the rising sun, I had a very appetising meal. The people that worked there are very nice they make sure you are satisfied with what you have ordered. But most of all its a lovely place to take your family to for a treat in the week or even for a birthday party. I would suggest... More

Last week, after a long absence, we returned to eat at an old haunt, The Rising Sun near Woodland. This Inn is quite a long way from our home and on our previous visit we decided that under the (then) new ownership, although quite good, it was no longer worth the journey. This time we were travelling nearby and decided... More

Fantastic location for exploring the area. Superb food with a good choice on the menu. Rooms clean and comfortable and the owners are friendly and always willing to help, advise and for a chat without being intrusive. I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Rising Sun, would definitely stay again and would be happy to recommend.

Only stayed for 1 night but were given a lovely warm welcome and the staff looked after us really well. The evening menu was absolutely fantastic and all of our meals were cooked to perfection. If we lived in the area it would be our first choice of places to eat. The rooms are a little dated hence 4 stars... More
