good food and very friendly atmosphere. A very peaceful place, the ham, egg and chips were extremely good as was the crime brûlée, the price was very reasonable.

I have tried a few real English Sunday Roasts since been in this country and this is by far the best one and I think it will be hard to beat.

Yesterday was our first visit to The Rising Sun and we are so pleased to have found it. We went there for lunch to celebrate a family birthday. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals - they were delicious and beautifully served and we definitely hope to visit again as soon as possible!
