There’s no need to leave any of the family behind…

We are dog friendly, though we are never over-run with dogs as we only have five dog friendly rooms, so don’t worry if you’re not a dog-owner!  We also ensure some of our rooms are not occupied by guests with dogs, in case of allergies.

But your canine companion is always very welcome here at The Rising Sun in fact we think this is the perfect place to bring your dog to enjoy some of the splendid walks we have on our doorstep. Dogs are charged at £8 per night each. We have a supply of dog towels and goodies to make your four legged friend fell right at home. Dog beds and bowls are available on request. 

Your dog is welcome to join you anywhere in the pub.

If there is anything else we can help you with – detailed walking maps, an extra lead, or a bowl of water – please do ask.


For  some really great walking just take a stroll across the bridge and then follow the riverbank either downstream through the fields or upstream through the village. We have a train station in Umberliegh that stops off in many of the quaint villages we are surrounded by , we have a list of walks that go from theses stations to other great country pubs. For the more adventurous head to Exmoor.
