This is a lovely place in a beautiful part of the UK. The food is excellent and very well presented. The staff are really friendly and we had a brilliant evening. It may be a little bit more expensive than an average pub but this is above average and would not hesitate to visit again as felt it was well... More

Found this pub/restaurant through AA pub finder. The decor needs updating but the quality of food and service is excellent. We had been staying nearby in a cottage and booked a table on the Thursday eve. We were so impressed with the friendliness of staff, excellent service and quality of food, we booked again on the Friday eve. Thank you... More

When I went to the rising sun, I had a very appetising meal. The people that worked there are very nice they make sure you are satisfied with what you have ordered. But most of all its a lovely place to take your family to for a treat in the week or even for a birthday party. I would suggest... More

Last week, after a long absence, we returned to eat at an old haunt, The Rising Sun near Woodland. This Inn is quite a long way from our home and on our previous visit we decided that under the (then) new ownership, although quite good, it was no longer worth the journey. This time we were travelling nearby and decided... More

Fantastic location for exploring the area. Superb food with a good choice on the menu. Rooms clean and comfortable and the owners are friendly and always willing to help, advise and for a chat without being intrusive. I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Rising Sun, would definitely stay again and would be happy to recommend.

Only stayed for 1 night but were given a lovely warm welcome and the staff looked after us really well. The evening menu was absolutely fantastic and all of our meals were cooked to perfection. If we lived in the area it would be our first choice of places to eat. The rooms are a little dated hence 4 stars... More

I have stayed at this pub many years now and I love the hearty atmosphere around. The rooms are a little tired but still have their main function. I'd recommend an upstairs room. The dining is great, they have tasty main courses and desserts alike. In the mornings they do toast or an English breakfast. The staff are competent and... More

Called in for Sunday Lunch and was quite pleasantly surprised. OK, the food is pub fayre but the veggies in particular were beautifully prepared and presented. Rarely do you see fennel on the menu. The lamb was nicely roayed, if cut a tad to thick for my wife's taste; each to their own... Finally, the bar staff were attentive and... More

Am still on a high from my delicious Dinner at The Rising Sun Inn, Woodland this evening. Was made very welcome from the moment I arrived and was very impressed with the menu choices available. I chose Chicken and Bacon Carbonara served with homemade bread and can honestly say such was the even more delicious than any I have eaten... More
