The Rising Sun Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Pound Lane End, Umberleigh, EX37 9DU
At this traditional country pub you can be sure of a warm welcome from the landlords and their friendly team. The bedrooms are cosy and well appointed, wood-burners blaze in the bar in winter, and there’s a glorious outdoor terrace for the summer months. Located on the Tarka Line Rail Ale Trail, The Rising Sun is surrounded by lovely rambling and dog-walking country, and dogs are welcome in the bar and even most of the bedrooms. It is also only a stone’s throw from the beautiful River Taw and is renowned as a fishing pub. Rainbow trout may feature on the seasonal menu, along with appetising variations on traditional British favourites, such as corned beef hash and poached egg served with the modern addition of Hollandaise sauce and watercress. If you’re a fan of Sunday roasts, you might start with delicious mini Yorkshire puddings served with slices of beef fillet, homemade horseradish sauce, pickled cucumber and beetroot. For the genuine article, visit on a Sunday for a freshly cooked roast and a choice of mouthwatering desserts, which might include homemade apple pie, white chocolate cheesecake, or chocolate profiteroles with dark chocolate sauce. Local real ale, spirits and soft drinks are available in the bar, as is a wide selection of fine wine – including Champagne and Prosecco. A children’s menu is available and there are also regular special offers and events; please check their website for details.
