We had a family Sunday Lunch. The food was excellent. Roast Beef/Roast Pork. We couldn't remember when we last had such a good Sunday lunch. The vegetables were delicious. A wide selection. Not overcooked.

We went out for supper last night after a long day at work. We thought we would try this pub and we were very pleasantly surprised. On arrival the landlord gave us a very friendly welcome and his sense of humour was great. The beer was good. The menus was short in selection but the food was very good. I... More

We went here after a long working day when I couldn't be bothered to cook. We fancied taking Mutley with us and found the Rising Sun on 'DoggiePubs' so off we went. This is a small pub, well attended by friendly and characterful locals, all of whom took an instant shine to our dog who was barely seen for the... More

We were tempted by the fulsome reviews of this pub to visit on a Monday night. We were greeted by the erudite landlord who wanted to discuss Maeterlinck after noticing my BEE registration plate. He wasn't impressed that I used " Beekeeping for Dummies" I can tell you, and he's not even a beekeeper! Not your average pub then, you... More

Our first visit with friends to this most interesting establishment and just what the Doctor ordered! Our hosts Giles, Louise and their team managed to squeeze us in at quite short notice on a very busy Sunday lunchtime and we're so glad they did. The ambience, ample well-cooked food, and sensibly selected wine-list were all just perfect for our tastes,... More
