We ordered a fish plate to share and three dishes of crab and one of mussels. The fish plate was okay but we really enjoyed the crabs, very fresh. There was a lot to eat and to pick! The only criticism was that the crab was a little too cold at the beginning, I guess it came straight from the... More

The food is excellent here and great atmosphere. Staff are very happy and helpful and very switched on remembering things said in passing and your round of drinks. This is a popular place and limited table space in the pub, but worth persevering to get a table.

We chose from the bar menu and the food was delicious. The portions were quite large. The staff also bring a couple of freebies! We had a small white bean soup and a lovely baby dessert. Nice touch!

Do go, it really is a lovely pub and location. But compared to food of similar if not better quality at other pubs and restaurants we went to during our holiday in the area it was slightly over priced for dinner.

We booked for dinner at the Rising Sun and were surprised to find a high quality restaurant rather than simple pub food. We had vegetarian dishes as well as crab and Dover sole. The taste and presentation were both superb. There was a nice buzz in the place and the service was faultless. With wine and 3 courses, you should... More

We went here to grab a quick lunch. We both went for the ploughman's. this consisted of pork pie, ham, cheese, pickle, apple, lettuce, pickled onions, white bread and brown bread and spread. The bread was fresh and delicious and the cheese and ham were very tasty. My only criticism would be to have proper butter and more cheese! Busy... More

A beautiful thatched roofed pub/restaurant/hotel, full of atmosphere and old world charm. Our first night in Lynmouth was a birthday celebration and we booked a table for 4. The table was set beautifully and the meal was every bit as good. So good in fact that we went back on our second night too. Good service, first rate!

Popped in here for lunch after a long hike down the Lynn valley. My wife and I ordered a beer and crab sandwich each and we're expecting the usual overpriced seaside pub grub that is sadly found in too many tourist venues. We were however pleasantly surprised. The local real ales was excellent and the crab sandwiches were probably the... More

Called in for bar lunch during a walk in the East Lyn Valley. Sandwiches were excellent with chunky granary bread and generous and tasty fillings. Good beer too! But why do pubs persist is serving those tasteless leathery vegetable crisps on the side?? A few nice Kettle crisps would be far more acceptable! But all in all a very good... More
