Called in for Sunday lunch and was told its a 45 minute wait for food, which turned out to be only 20 minutes so we felt we were on a winner. The Pork Belly Roast was a stand out, lots of pork and lovely vegetables....More

Been to Rising Sun many times for food and always ok but popped in today for lunch and what a difference! Apparently they have appointed a new head chef. The food was outstanding. Certainly the most delicious Sunday lunch I've had in a long time....More

Picturesque quaint riverside pub setting & serving tasty food. The place gets busy @ weekend & in the evening when parking can be awkward. The drive to the pub from the Norfolk Broads where there are boats moored & other riverside restaurants is beautiful.
