We have had a relaxed lunch here several times, but had always wanted to sample the dinner menu. So we decided to book ourselves a night away and stay there to have dinner. We received a lovely warm welcome on arrival and taken to our room. We had a standard double with sea views and it was completely as advertised.... More

Best place to eat in the area. Interesting menu and beautifully cooked fish. The crab risotto starter was just delicious and the turbot even better. Couldn't manage dessert but there were a few things I fancied on the menu. Decent wine by the glass selection and friendly staff. The building is great and well worth going in for a drink.... More

The only place open when I visited, beautiful 14th century black and white beamed pub on the front of the harbour. If you're a vegetarian you will be disappointed with the 2 options on offer, a risotto and a mushroom dish. I went for the risotto which was delicious but quite a small helping, the bowl looks big but isn't... More

Food, atmosphere, hospitality and staff were all amazing, I would strongly recommend the Sea Bass which was the freshest and most delicious I have ever had! The staff were so lovely and even though they were fully booked (in January) they helped as much they could find us a table in the bar area. Wonderful pub!

A group of us tried out this seafood restaurant at the start of 2017. We all enjoyed our food. I chose the crab parpadelle and it was full of taste. The flavour of the crab shone through the perfectly done parpadelle (a thick, flat and wider than usual type of pasta) and the samphire just served to add that extra... More

Wonderful service from staff. Very patient and attentive. Good price for good food. Seafood was well worth it. Portions are full mains so did struggle to finish all the mains. Make space before you go!

The Rising Sun has a nice appeal from first sight. The exterior is an Olde World Seaside Pub. Inside is equally as quaint. A good choice of beers and a quality menu are on offer. Dining can be had in the restaurant or bar area. Menu is good but relatively limited. I have visited here when extremely busy in summer... More
