Lovely setting and vibe. Had the share plates and they were delicious, however the service was very slow while friendly.

“Does the simple things best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

I think the trick to the Rising Sun is to stick to the basics-burgers, fish and chips, etc. Our meals were tasty and filling. Drinks were well priced and the atmosphere was buzzing. Good for a casual meal and a few drinks with family and friends.
