We're looking for a nice place to call our 'local' as we're moving back to the area. Used to love this place a few years ago, visited a lot, but what a change in attitude now... The pub was 3/4 empty when we arrived, but it still took 10 mins+ for any bar staff to look our way. Food was... More

I recently visited with my 2 children. The beer garden is good with a park for the kids but to be honest the attitude of the staff left alot to be desired. The children had a little game of pool & we kept getting funny looks from one of the bar staff. I wont be coming here again.

Called into this restaurant and pub and was greeted with the most friendly of welcomes Mark the owner was very friendly and as someone who lives in the area and visited other pubs/restaurants I think they need to call in and see what customer service is all about he could definitely teach them

My Parents stayed here for 4nights and really enjoyed their stay. They had a large double room room, very quiet at night time. Really attentive hosts and rooms were lovely. Food was excellent when they dined in the restaurant. Really big portions.They will certainly stay again.

We had a twin room, double aspect view, so it was light and airy. tea, coffee, biscuits etc were provided, also free wi fi. We dined in the restaurant on the Friday evening and the food was delicious, a decent amount of... More

I stayed at the Rising Sun for Two nights. The room (No 2) was light bright and airy, the facilities were adequate and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was very tasty & hot. We had one evening meal, I chose the Chicken Curry & rice, which was nice but not authentic. Overall I enjoyed my stay and if I was... More

I've eaten at The Rising Sun before and been relatively pleased but the service I had on Sunday convinced me never to visit again. I phoned in advance to make a booking for a party of 6, I was told that wasn't required and to just turn up. So that's exactly what we did. On arrival we were shown to... More

I'm a bit biased because I used to live in this area many years ago. The pub is across the road from the canal which you can walk or cycle for miles. The accommodation is clean and simple and the pub downstairs is good with friendly owners. Breakfasts were good, nice and fresh and generous portions. If you need to... More

We have been going to the Rising Sun as a family for many years and we have in fact booked many group parties for family occasions. My eldest son is rather fussy so he normally just has chips, so it was a real surprise to find out tonight that this was refused and unless he had something off the £8.25... More

Recently visited the Rising Sun for the first time in years for food with a large group of friends. Everything was great up until we had to pay for our meals. As a group we had spent well over £150 on various meals and drinks for all and were splitting the bill. Due to certain members of our group paying... More
