Living within a half mile, the Rising Sun is our local & has seen a succession of Landlords some of which have been a disaster. However having eaten there three times in the last month I can honestly say it is like a breath of fresh air. There is a greater range of beers including the famous Jail Ale &... More

We stopped here on way home from camping in South Hams and can highly recommend as a Sunday Roast stop! The pub doesn't look particularly special outside and inside its 1980's decor with red velvet booths and pink carpet in the ladies loos. Don't let that put you off though as the food is amazing. We had the roast beef... More

Checked out of the Rising Sun today and in high spirits. Great service, pristine accommodation with comfy beds and crisp linen. Breakfast scrumptious with a choice of menu. The sausages were exceptionally exquisite. Owners very helpful and friendly. Thank you Gaynor and Nigel for making our very first stay in Devon pleasantly memorable. We look forward to meeting you both... More

Would highly recommend here to anyone who is looking for great locally produced food. I love my pies and I'd say my steak pie and mash was probably the best pie ever! The mash and veg were also top notch. Unfortunately, it's a bit bland inside. Clean, but a bit 1970's. Hence not 5 stars. Anyway, the food and drink... More
