A great family run village pub/restaurant. The hosts are extremely friendly and the food was excellent. A small select menu but the quality and taste was first class.

We weren't expecting such beautifully presented plates of food from a village pub. If I'm honest o thought the sophisticated menu and descriptions of the meals couldn't be backed up by what actually came out of the kitchen but we weren't disappointed. It was delicious. We had mussels with chorizo and also the scallops and black pudding fritters and pea... More

After hearing so many good reviews about the Sunday lunch here, we booked and was not disappointed. Food was lovely, so many flavours. You get so much veg here, and a mixed variety (very different to the basics other pubs give you). You can tell this is all fresh/home-made. Desserts are amazing too!! Never had a bad meal here. Will... More

Lunch with friends very enjoyable, a second visit. Scallops, fish and burger all very fresh , well cooked and delicious. Relatively short but interesting menu and a different, but yummy, take on chips. Pleasant, friendly landlord/lady and reasonable prices for the quality. Shame we don't live a bit closer.

Went here for lunch with friends and was very impressed with the quality of the food for a rural village pub! Very reasonably priced - mine came to £7.50 for a baguette, drink and sharing a side of chips. All food was served on a slate so looked very appealing, and tasted amazing too! Great village pub.

I just wanted to say that we had a wonderful lunch here last Tuesday and the landlord made us feel so welcome. We ordered a cheese ploughman's and I have to say it was one of the best I'd eaten in years. The food was really fresh and delicious, and the presentation was impressive; so such attention to detail went... More

A really lovely Saturday lunchtime at the Rising Sun with my Maltese friend. We shared the pork & chicken liver terrine as a starter & then I had the pork, sage & apple burger & my friend had the smoked haddock fish cakes. Everything was delicious. The hosts were their usual charming selves and it was the meal we enjoyed... More

What can I say, this was a lovely afternoon. I came with my Sister, Niece and Dad after picking him up from hospital after a major operation. First of all we didn't know what to expect, but we were greeted by a very friendly landlord who was so welcoming. There is a lovely garden with a play area for little... More
