Family meal

Really enjoyed the food here. Lovely night out with family. Good service. I wish patrons would park properly though, getting out was very difficult as cars are just left where they should not be blocking everyone else in. Could do with addressing.

On an extremely wet Wednesday eight of us decided we needed cheering up and ended up in Christchurch in this restaurant. What a treat, food fabulous, staff and atmosphere great. And really great value.

There were about eight of us for an after work Friday night get together. We were shown to our table exactly at the right time. They were very busy but the waitresses were extremely attentive and helpful even though we were a bit of an awkward group and could not make up our minds. The food was excellent and I... More

So you die and go to Heaven. There is a long waiting queue for the pearly gates and god says to you "Fancy a Thai and a pint?" He's take you to the Rising Sun. The greeting is friendly and they balance the pub atmosphere and restaurant perfectly. We have never had a poor meal and the food is perfectly... More

£9.50 for a 2 course lunch with a choice of 7 starters and 8 mains, they will also make most of the dishes veggie, plus a good quality Sauvignon Blanc for £9.50.

Food as always was excellent. I like the fact that you can specify the spicy heat (or not) that you want, leave an ingredient out etc. as it is all cooked to order and not bought in, as with some restaurants. As it was a celebration we dropped off balloons, banners and a cake mid day knowing the table would... More

Having read the reviews on here and been told it was really good we were a bit disappointed. The pub is really nicely decorated and cosy. Atmosphere was good. We ordered one of the banquets and the amount of food was large. Some of it was tasty but some were very average. The fish cakes were great, the pork belly... More
