“Very good , we will be back :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Went for a walk on Sunday for lunch. We did have a long wait but we were pre warned and we really didn't mind. The service was fantastic and the food was lovely. I'm a veggie and had 3 choices which is ok. Hubby had steak pie which looked huge and definitely home made. Friends chose Sunday lunch and a pasta dish. All portions large and home cooked. The good thing is they don't use frozen or oven chips! Proper home cooked chips...you can't beat them :)

“Great service, atmosphere and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

My mum, dad and I decided to go here to eat after we went to see a friend in a live band the night before, (Violet Sky, go see them they are awesome) we were greeted with a smile and great service, they even said they hoped to see us again when we left which added the personal touch. On top of that the food was very nice and we got very large portions, maybe it is a tad more expensive than some other family pubs but for the service and the portions, it was worth it. I would definitely recommend it.

“order the meat pie!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

We have eaten here several times recently and find the food very good value.The steaks and especially the meat pie are particually good. We would recommend giving the Rising Sun a try. Our only negative is that being non smokers ourselves its a bit off putting to have to pass through all the smokers in the enterance [some of which are the staff] something should be done about this.

“Very happy that this is my local!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

I have lived near Rising Sun for 7 years but never visited the Rising Sun.... up till a couple of months ago, and now I go in twice a week! The food here is gorgeous! They have a vast menu and quick service which is just what you want. The Sunday dinners are lovely, and really do fill you up. Great value for money. I recommend the pie too, there is that much meat in them, they are almost impossible to finish.

“Food pub grub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

The pub itself has been really well fitted out and is very appealing to the eye, there is a good selection of real ales (Marstons)
We have eaten there a couple of times now, roast lunches, fish and chips and a curry. All the food was average, leaving us a little underwhelmed, quite expensive compared to similar pubs in the area and does not appear to be as 'home made' as it could?
3 out of 5 on food hygiene from Hull City Council was a big surprise, with only 'Fair' hygiene and 'Some' confidence in management, although I would not let this put you off.
I personally would not return but I can understand the attraction to its regulars.
