Description: At the Rising Sun we strived to develop an environment in which all ages would feel at home. So from lounge seating to bar stools and beautiful wooden tables in the dining area we hope you too will feel at home with us! From the kitchen we serve traditional and innovative dishes with the menu changing with the seasons. So come and see us for a quick sandwich or bowl of mussels at lunch or a three course gastro delight in the evening, the choice is up to you, just remember to book to avoid those disappointments!

Our table was booked for 20:30 and although our table was not ready until 20:45 our waitress gave us menus whilst sitting in the bar, explained the specials and then took our order. Within minutes we... More

Firstly, I believe in 'people' before everything else. If food is so-so, service makes it a feast. The food at the Rising Sun has a good reputation in Poole. We both enjoyed our meal - the home made mushroom and goats' cheese soup was nothing short of stunning. My partner has the vegetarian risotto while had the filet of beef... More

Usually use here for pre-theatre dinner. Returned for a more leisurely meal with friends. Great choice, excellent service, lovely food and reasonably priced and the place was buzzing. Just great.

Visited whilst staying in Poole on Saturday night, we had no reservation when we tried to book we were offered a table for 2130. Got there for a drink at 9 and sitting at our table by 9:15. Great ambience, very nice menu. Attentive and knowledgable staff and very good food. A very very enjoyable evening- hope to return.

Dropped in this lunchtime for a bite on the insistence of my stepdaughter. I had an astonishingly good fish finger sandwich!. Fresh home made cod fish fingers with salad and home made tartare sauce. Outstanding!. She had a pulled pork and barbecue sauce sandwich. We were both so impressed we booked a table for this evening. Myself, wife, two stepdaughters.... More

We go to the Rising Sun several times a year and it never disappoints and have recommended it to several friends who now also enjoy going there. Last Saturday there were 8 of us in our group and after having a relaxed drink up at the bar, we were led to our table. The food is always good, but both... More
