About us

Newly refurbished and under new ownership, The Rising Sun is set in the countryside. This relaxed family-run pub is only 1 and a 1/4 miles from Dartmoor National Park. As a family we have years of experience in hospitality and retail, therefore we are hugely passionate about providing high quality food, customer service and most importantly a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Another family passion of ours is animals. We are entirely dog friendly throughout the pub with water and treats available for your pups. And it doesn't end there - we also have a grass area with a post and rail, complete with haynets and water, for safely tethering your horses so you can enjoy a mid hack refreshment. For those of you who prefer car as your mode of transport we have a large free car park right outside.

It's an absolutely lovely pub. The service was friendly, and the food was amazing. The pub is really well laid out, plenty of space, and very inviting. We will definitely be visiting again!

Staying at the local campsite and decided to walk here for Sunday lunch. Well worth the walk (approx a mile along the lanes with a few steep inclines!) The pub is immaculately clean and has instant curb appeal. Lovely beer garden, a little shop selling dog related stuff. Staff are really friendly and the pub has a lovely feel about modern meets traditional. Decent beers and great food. Sunday roast was excellent and good value £13-50 for quality food. Sweet was great too. So good we booked to go again.

Lovely place! We come here when we can. Very welcoming and friendly staff with great service and great food and drink. We had our Christmas dinner here and absolutely loved it. The gardens lovely, it's a vast outdoor area, theres even somewhere to park your horse (post and rail with hay nets on the grass). If this place was closer to newton abbot town it would be packed all the time but it's in the beautiful countryside and makes a great stop for running, cycling, riding, car or motorbike clubs. The family have put alot of work into making an amazing pub, well worth a visit! The menu's changed since covid but the food is still spot on. Its been great seeing this pub get more popular as people discover it but its surprisingly spacious inside and never feels overcrowded even when it's busy. Highly recommended 👌

First visit in over 5 year, and what a magnificent change. The Rising Sun is now a modern light and airy Pub selling unpretentious great food. With 7 people eating we had a good range of the menu from traditional gammon to Mediterranean chicken flatbread, each plate of food was plentiful and delicious. We will be coming back again.
