My partner and I ate at the rising sun last week at the recommendation of our hotel, the Rothesay. The owner didn't hesitate to recommend the restaurant and I can see why. The food was delicious, full of flavour and beautifully presented. We couldn't decide what to have, the menu all looks amazing, so we opted for one of the... More

This bar and restaurant is exceptional. The bar creates a super feel good factor. The staff are great and very attentive with a marvellous ability to get it right - and they do. I live locally and this bar/restaurant is easily the best in the east of Dorset - probably anywhere! Richard S

We had a table booked on Saturday evening for my wife's birthday and decided to re-visit the rising sun after a fantastic visit 2 years ago. We arrived at 7.30 and were shown to our seat and was told someone would be along to take our drinks order straight away. 15 mins later we were still sat there waiting for... More

Overall service very quick and staff polite, when our meal was served it looked appetising but was over killed by the amount of black bean sauce used in the preparation, tasted awful. Maybe we were just unlucky as we have been before and had a very good meal. Would be a bit more choosy if we came again!!

Have just had a great lunch at The Rising Sun. Such good value, terrific food, first class caring service..can't wait to go again. Understand that the evening meals are excellent too. It was a really hot day, and we had our lunch outside under covers, wonderful atmosphere, and can't praise the quality of the food enough
