This was the first time my wife and I have visited Lynmouth and we absolutely loved this quirky, traditional hotel. The rooms are contemporary and very well appointed. The beds are top of the range and extremely comfortable. Even the TVs are great. It's obvious a lot of time, care and expense has gone into the room refurbishments and it's...

Visited this pub/restaurant on Boxing day. The bar was packed and restaurant busy yet we received a warm welcome and promise of good food. With only a reasonable delay we were served with traditional fish, chips and mushy peas for me and wild mushroom risotto for my wife - a great lunchtime treat. Mainly fish dishes on the menu but...

We popped into the establishment for a beautifully kept pint of ale after a long cold day of dog walking. We were so impressed with the menu and fabulous atmosphere we returned that evening for dinner. The restaurant wasn't open that evening, being off peak, so we sat in the pub area looking out to the sea, by the window....

Whilst regular visitors to Exmoor we usually pop into the Sun for a pint but had not stayed in the hotel for some time so decided we should revisit it as part of my birthday celebration. We booked in advance and took advantage of the no cancellation rate. On emailing the inn to check bookings we were a little disappointed...

Excellent food and service in both bar and restaurant. comfortable rooms. The bar was very cosy with a good selection of local beers and spirits and there was a log fire for the cold evenings. Location perfect for lots of great walks.

We were on our way to a 2 night stay in North Cornwall and wanted to find a good stop off en route. After a great, late afternoon trot round Heddon's Mouth & Peter's Rock (recommended) we made the short drive to the Rising Sun. The location is great, opposite the harbour and the facade is typical of a historic...

Friendly Hostelry with excellent real ales, and superb food. The young staff were friendly efficient and knowledgeable about their beers.

After spotting the rising sun early on arrival the subsequent visit was a great dissapointment. Both ourselves and another family were left feeling rather policed by the lady behind the bar (possibly the landlady) who seems to have forgotten what good hospitality entails. A real shame.
