“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

My husband and I are in the area on holiday and decided on dinner in this lovely gastropub. The staff were really friendly and service good and I cannot rave highly enough about how delicious my steak and ale pie and gravy was. Not to mention the amazing sticky toffee pudding we shared! Really great evening, so much so that we plan another visit later this week before we go home from holiday!

“Great pub, lovely food and very friendly staff”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

I had my wedding reception at the Rising Sun in April this year, we had an amazing day, the staff were very friendly and helpful to all the guests, the wedding breakfast and the evening Buffett was incredible. There were lots of bar staff working all day so no one had to wait long for a drink!! The venue is lovely and lends itself to a great atmosphere. Food and drinks are also reasonably priced. I would highly recommend people to check this pub out for a meal or to hire it for a special event.

“Another Superb Meal”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We visited this restaurant again on the spur of the moment- what a wise decision this was. Our table wasn't until 9pm by which time a few of the specials had run out but this was not a problem as the chef quickly created some new specials. I chose one of these as my starter- goats' cheese and walnut salad. It was delicious. My husband equally enjoyed his risotto too. For main I had fillet steak - medium rare. In truth my steak was more like rare but it didn't matter as its quality was so good. The forestiere sauce to accompany it was beautiful. My husband had moules frites as good as any he has eaten in France. Our puddings were equally delicious. It was not a problem that I wanted vanilla ice cream to go with my chocolate fondant rather than the peanut butter ice cream on the menu nor was it a problem that my husband wanted his coffee with pudding and I wanted mine after.
All in all we had a beautiful meal in great surroundings with attentive, professional service. I cannot wait for another excuse to return
