Small but perfectly formed room overlooking tiny harbour.... Worth a small premium to hear/smell the sea on waking... Food with emphasis on fresh local ingredients is excellent... Crab slate a real fave... Smoked haddock at breakfast a bit less than generous but perfectly cooked

We stayed at The Rising Sun at the end of juli and eventhough we didn't see the sun rise, we had a superb stay. The location Lynton and Lynmouth are a nice pair of villages at the heart of Exmoor. Lynton on the top of the hill provides great views over the bay and has all the facilities you would... More

Found this place we made a point of calling in at least once a day. Location, overlooking the harbour and ideal for people watching. Outside seating is restricted to a stone wall but it's comfortable enough and really is a good place to while away a couple of hours watching the world go by. They have a good selection of... More

Very busy time of the year but got served promptly and the starters were enormous and well cooked. We both love seafood and had the mussels which came with big chunks of crusty bread. We shared a seafood platter which was very well presented and delicious. Wasn't too keen on some of the selections on the cheese board as I... More

The Rising Sun is located on the harbour at Lynmouth. There is no car park but street parking was readily available on a Friday evening in high season. Parking is effectively free from 16.00 to 12.00 next day. The bar and restaurant have a traditional feel and the service is very friendly and helpful. We booked a room with bath... More

Right in the harbour in Lynmouth. A lovely quaint hotel. Room very comfortable and well appointed only complaint was huge bath ok if you have long legs. Very fresh bedding and towels. We ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff.

We visited on the 1st night of our arrival at Lynton and could see it was very popular. Although everyone was friendly and the pub old fashioned in charm the prices for drinks and food was very expensive in comparison to other pubs. The food menu was very limited to pretty much fish dishes which I can't eat so is... More

We are a very popular place to visit with locals and visitors alike which we think makes for a great mix of people as you yourselves experienced. Our food is fresh, cooked to order and where possible locally sourced and this is reflected in the quality and the the price of the food we serve.We do have fish and shellfish... More

Higgledy piggly stairs lined with oak, situated right on the dock side with beautiful views of far off cliffs of Foreland Point. We wished we were staying a week. Lovely breakfast in a perfect picturesque fishing village. Loved it.
