What our Customers are Saying

“Food and service were top notch. Atmosphere and decor also very pleasant. Well worth a detour if you’re anywhere near this place.”

“This is a wonderful pub run by wonderful people. The location, management, food and everything about the Rising Sun are deserving of 5 stars.”

“The dining atmosphere was great, with a feel of a locals’ genuine watering hole blended sensitively with the features of a quality dining venue.”

“Food consistently excellent, ale likewise and service delightful. Must leave the dog behind next time so that we can sit in the even posher parts! I never give 10/10 for food – but with the fillet steak cooked at the table on a hot stone with peppercorn sauce it’s a definite full marks. Chef is gorgeous too!”
