The Rising Sun Hotel
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Lynmouth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 November 2017 via mobile

We popped in for a beer and lunch. As you enter the bar , you are thinking simply how typically seaside , olde style , the Rising sun is. We felt immediately relaxed, found a cosy spot and soaked up the atmosphere, even on a wet windy November lunchtime. The drinks and service were first class , but the food, I can still taste it now , simply excelled. We chose off the bar menu, sandwiches , snacks , it was simply wow. ( we heard similar comments from surrounding diners too) Never had a better sandwich. Very thick homemade bread , could not have been fresher , filled to overflowing with Brie and bacon, on the side , crisps and salad . Why oh why oh why, can other pubs not take a leaf out of the Rising Suns book, and do the simple, brilliantly. When we visit again we will def try out the full restaurant menu. Outstanding, thank you.

Great location right on the harbour with fantastic views of the sea and river mouth. Our room was small but we chose this knowing we would wake up to the best views. We were not disappointed. It was very clean, tidy and very comfortable. Now to the food. Ridiculously good. Chef came to our table to explain how he smoked the pork belly when we enquired how it was made to taste so fabulous. I can't say enough how impressive it was. An absolute must if you're in Lynmouth.

Room Tip: Small room better view. Bigger rooms not so.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night break in this gorgeous quayside pub/hotel. Buzzing, even on a chilly November evening, with a good mix of locals and 'out of towners' alike.

Our room (5), though quite small, was absolutely charming, and had a lovely view over the harbour. Bathroom was again small (shower/no bath) but had plenty of everything one might need for a weekend stay, with plentiful hot water in the shower. Mind your head as you negotiate the stairs/hallway to the rooms, this is a very old building, built for little people like me, not my 6ft 3" tall husband !

What really makes this place stand out from the rest is the incredible seafood they offer on their bar menu. We ate oysters, whitebait, calamari, fish and chips, and the most amazing roasted shellfish platter.....not all in one evening I hasten to add ! As a pescatarian, this menu was a dream for me, I was so spoilt for choice. It's a shame we only stayed 2 nights, I could happily have eaten my way through almost the whole menu ! There is also plenty of choice for those of you who aren't quite so enamoured by the spoils of the sea ! Our compliments to the chef and kitchen staff.

Great breakfasts too, 'Full English', smoked haddock, choice of eggs etc, with a 'family sized' portion of smoked salmon for me one morning....delicious !

And finally the staff, from the excellent barman (Tim ?), all the girls at breakfast and in the evening, to the lovely Helen in Reception, whose service was exemplary. You guys are a shining example of how an establishment like this should be run.

I so hope we get the chance to visit again soon, and would absolutely recommend it for it's excellent position in lovely Lynmouth and it's excellent service.

Myself and my wife stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The atmosphere was perfect and food was very tasty, the place is also dog friendly and had no issues bringing the dog in and out of the hotel regardless of time. Would highly recommend staying here for a nice get away as a couple, there are plenty of local amenities, walking routes (some are a short drive in the car) and other small towns in the surrounding areas to visit. The valley of rocks is also well worth a visit there are some stunning views and the walk isn't too strenuous.
