It's wonderful to have a pub where you can go for a drink, eat and chat. At long last, under new ownership with people who obviously care, the Rising Sun is back to how it was years ago - a friendly warm and welcoming village pub, which is open all day every day. BRILLIANT

Craig, Phil and Rob have done the business, The Rising Sun now offers what they promised - real ales which change weekly and good traditonal pub food ( for under a tenner) supplemented by innovative and imginative "specials" on the blackboard. If you get the chance sample Rob's Blackpudding "Scotch Eggs" or for something simple but delicious "Fish and Chips"... More

We had high hopes with the new owners and pleased to show off one of our local pubs to visiting family but were very disappointed. Nearly a 2 hour wait for our food, and we were told they had run out of spuds. The meal was poor, and the atmosphere was not as it used to be. Sadly we won't... More

Visited with a group of friends on the rail ale trail and pleased that we went here first after being put off by some recent reviews. Our last visit was three years ago and we enjoyed it then. An excellent choice of ales were well kept. My fellow trailers ate here and enjoyed their meal.

We weren't expecting to eat at this pub so we're delighted to discover that it has recently changed hands and now does food. We had a lovely lunch from an interesting menu and thought the pub was the perfect country hostelry!

This is a GREAT friendly pub, now with the owner at the helm it has still got the atmosphere from all the music lovers and locals, we were all disappointed when we were told buy tenants for 3 yrs, Venny and Dave that the owner was not going to carry on with live music, that turn out to be incorrect,...

Its a great shame to read some recent unkind reviews about the new situation at the Rising Sun, its true to say they have stopped doing food and that the previous tenants who were in situe for three years have left. It is now back to being run by the very friendly landlord Dave, who has owned the pub for... More

Shame. For a couple of years this pub did quite good food. Not now though. Reverted back to what is was a few years ago - a pub with no atmosphere and no food.
