Description: Clean, warm, cosy, friendly, relaxing , set in the beautiful old village of Hurley. The village dates back to 700 ad and is recorded in the Domesday, the old church is still standing which was once the nave to the old Priory until 1536 when Henry Vlll dissolved the Monasteries. The River Thames is just 4 min walk from the Rising Sun. Built around 1830 the pub is a big favorite with walkers, ramblers, boating people alike. There is a fantastic caravan and camping site just down the road, which is among the top 5 sites in the UK for static, mobile and camping.We have a village shop, a church and a small B&B. The village is heaving in the summer months with tourists enjoying the camping and picnic areas right on the River Thames.Soft comfortable chairs and settees, log fire for the cold winter months. Home cooked and prepared traditional pub food plus specials, 4 ever changing real ales from local brewer's and a selection of lagers.

“Excellent lunch in pleasant garden sun-trap”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

There is one public house and one hotel on the high street of this delightful village. The 'sun' has an ample car park and some limited on street parking. A traditional building with a small beer garden to the rear. The lunch time menu gave a good variety of choices. We chose the chicken burger which was presented on a wooden platter with salad and home made chips. The portions were generous, plenty for lunch time. Service was quick, the staff very pleasant, generally a very nice lunch!

“Very welcoming and friendly”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

We popped into the Rising Sun for a drink whilst staying in Hurley. We usually make a visit to this pub whilst in Hurley, over the years there have been several different landlords and there are new landlords now. They are very welcoming and friendly, the pub itself was more appealing
and the atmosphere friendly and warm. We even had a game of bingo( unfortunately didn't win though. The next time we are in the area we will try the food as we were told that the food was great. Looking forward to the next visit.

“Excellent food and beer”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 via mobile

Stopped here while walking along the Thames Path and very glad we did. After eating my wife said "that was the best pub lunch I've had in a long time" - she had the homemade Guiness cottage pie, I had a sizzling steak - very good, cooked as ordered and the chips were excellent. Our friends both had the Cajun chicken quesadilla and said it was lovely. Beer is Rebellion which is up the road in Marlow and tasted as good as that from the brewery shop. All in all highly recommended.
