We decided to visit this pub as we had heard some very good reviews, reasonable priced beers & great food. Lovely Village pub atmosphere, food was very good, staff very friendly. The food was superbly presented & to a high standard, we have found cheaper elsewhere, however this was good value for money and worth paying the extra for. Landlord... More

I recently shared a treat with my Wife and walked down to our local Pub - The Rising Sun where we both had a very pleasant meal and I can recommend the Scallops for the starter course and not just for their aphrodisiac qualities. The Pub has always been a friendly place and it is nice to see it doing... More

I rarely respond to a review unless something needs sorting but being seen as the oldest landlord in the UK is a title that I cannot yet claim. The man that has the Muddled Man near Yeovil is many years my senior. And anyone customer that mentions Muttley is in for a serious talking to......!!! Glad you enjoyed eating at... More

Probably one of the best Sunday lunches I have ever had. Food was delicious, my only qualm would be that there wasn't enough of it- particularly the vegetables, but maybe we were just enjoying them too much! Will definitely return.

Dined here a few times and although the menu is small the food is excellent as it is cooked fresh. The presentation is much better than the usual pub fare.

We walked into the pub and received the warmest of welcomes from the pub host Giles Wareham. The pub was beginning to fill up as we entered and Giles introduced us to the other regular pub guests. The food was delicious and Louise and her son Pierre, the chef cook, really do go out of their way to produce a... More

I rarely order a traditional Sunday roast when eating at a pub as I usually find them disappointing, but Sunday lunch at the Rising Sun is superb and we all agreed that it was the best we have ever tasted. The wide variety of vegetables served with a generous portion of beef were beautifully cooked and flavoursome. Excellent beer and... More

Been to this lovely pub three times to eat,never yet been disappointed. The food is really first rate. The welcome is friendly, even the lovely black scotty dog (Angus) remembers who you are and wags his tail on arrival. The menu is always eclectic and that great as my hubby prefers ham egg and chips to my lamb koftas. Its... More

Sadly we had our last Sunday Lunch this week at The Rising Sun, it was excellent, definitely the best roast lunch I have ever had, always consistent, the gravy was superb, sorry to be leaving. Angus as usual greeted us with a wag of his tail, great atmosphere and wonderful staff.
