We are local and took some friends as they were on holiday, the staff were very friendly but the service was terrible. We had to wait ten minutes for a pint as the lady forgot to pour it!!! The burger at £13.95 was frozen and not worth the cost, it was advertised as steak night but I am sorry I... More

We stopped here having alighted the train at Umberleigh station on the "Otter Line". It was early evening but food was being served so we stayed for an excellent meal. Not a very long or complicated menu, but perfectly cooked and presented.

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

We stopped in Umberleigh for a day out and found this wonderful pub.The hosts made us feel very welcome and despite the kitchen being almost closed for lunch , they still managed to make us baguettes and chips.

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.
