This pub is lovely inside with a great atmosphere. The food looks great (we only popped in for pre curry drinks). Our friends recommended this pub as it has an extensive gin menu (see photo) Unfortunately the gin didn't quite live up to expectations as it was served without any of the accompaniments that the menu suggested. Very disappointing as... More

Found The Rising Sun purely by chance whilst looking for a light late lunch on Easter Sunday. Everything was perfect. The food we had was very good, exactly what we wanted, the pub was lovely and the staff were friendly. Exactly what a village pub should be. If we ever find ourselves in the area again we will definitely revisit... More

Lovely food, friendly staff and it's a dog friendly pub too. Nice range of food and good children's menu. Comfortable seating and a nice patio area outside.

Since my last review, what a turnaround. The owner's father, Owen, came up and shook hands with me. The staff, Alice, Ben and Phoebe were polite, smiling and on the ball for service. It was nice to see they had enough staff on to serve the people who just wanted to drink as well as serving the people for meals.... More

Very friendly staff, beautiful building and great food.... What more could you want? Only went in for a pint but after seeing other people's food decided lunch was a must. Service was fairly quick, although it was getting fairly busy by the time ours came out. Would highly recommend.

This pub has recently changed hands, I have been there twice and both times the service was nonchalant and not customer focused. They ran out of change, a couple of different drinks requested and had a limited range of other drinks and snacks. The guy behind the bar was busy having a conversation with other people he obviously knew whilst... More

Quite quiet on Tuesday lunchtime but the welcome was lovely. Food excellent and there was a good choice of wines as well as the Gin menu ! Well worth the drive out into the countryside

Since the closure of the pub we hadn't been down and thought to pop in last night to see how it was all going. And oh what a change! The new layout of the pub was very welcoming, the food menu looks delicious and the new wine menu has a very good variety! The pub was quite quiet last night... More

For two weeks running I have received appalling service in this pub. I would love to say that the pub has turned a corner but it is getting worse. Matt, you promised better service and someone behind the bar or when they came from the back they would ask who was next instead of going to first person they see.... More
