Went to The Rising Sun for tea on a Tuesday during our romantic getaway. We had a salmon starter and Cod & chips for main - both came out quickly and were lovely! Reasonably cheap and great quality with friendly staff who are up for a chat, with a gorgeous Labrador who was just as friendly. I would recommend to... More

The couple running the place (who I believe have only taken over a short while ago ) along with their very beautiful... More

Great surroundings in an idyll setting with the river running by. The owners very welcoming and friendly, as well as the locals. Food and real ale was excellent and dog friendly to. The only downside was the room, the bedding was damp, but this could be the time of year and the benefit of heating may cure that in the... More

Just spent four days at this hotel and although the rooms maybe a little tired the warmth and friendliness of Jules and the team more than made up for this. We ate at the hotel each evening and the quality was excellent. Jules was interested in making our stay comfortable and was more than happy to recommend places of interest... More

We stayed for two nights last weekend after watching our cricket team get beaten at Instow. This pub/hotel is nicely situated for visiting the surrounding area.

Check in was quick and we were given help with our cases up to our room - thank you! I'm afraid that the stairs are rather steep for someone of limited mobility - my wife needed help in both directions. The room was clean and comfortable, with a nice ensuite. However, there was a broken window, only partially covered with... More
