A great night at The Rising Sun recently - amazing hosts who shared their knowledge of the local area freely and openly, and spent the quiet periods gladly talking to us antipodeans. Warm and welcoming location, and a treat to get to through winding country lanes. Try the cheesy fries and Jail Ale combination. A must.

We had a three course meal at The Rising Sun, Woodland this evening and the food, wines/ales and service were tip top! Absolutely brilliant, highly recommend it to anybody! Nice and local to home, beautiful countryside and perfect for any occasion or function. The best meal we have had in years :-)

There are so few good places to eat these days. Many pubs & restaurants offer 'home-cooked' meals which sound tempting but turn out to be yet another over-priced, factory-produced & reheated clump of cheap ingredients with additives. The Rising Sun at Woodland is a rarity ... the meals are actually created by their chef, and it shows. I had one... More

They have a really good menu plus specials and were still serving roast three choices we went for the beef... More

Went to the Rising Sun Inn with a mate of mine as it was a beautiful day and the views are outstanding. I had a Tiger Prawn salad which was very tasty. My friend had Roast Pork Chop which he said was cooked to perfection.

We stayed here for 3 nights as a family of 5, with three small children (2, 4, and 7). The family room was just about large enough for us all which was ideal as the kids had a double bunk bed. The pub itself had a fantastic menu with a good selection of specials on the board. Pricewise, it was... More

We only stayed one night but had a lovely experience, the room was lovely and clean. Breakfast was delicious, we did have to wait but that was due to power cuts. The owner's are very friendly would definitely recommend and stay again.
