firstly the staff here are helpful. The decor is tired, this place is in need of a refurbishment. I ate from the snack menu, it was terrible, dry beans, over microwaved potato, and cheese melted to hide the evidence.

As a regular patron of The Rising Sun, I decided to book myself and three friends in for an entertainment evening they were putting on. Michael Buble tribute act to be exact. WOW! I am so happy we went. As usual the food and service were amazing, but this was an exceptional night. Everything had been well planned and organised.... More

Have eaten here a few times but the place seems to have gone down hill slightly. The food is good value but not fantastic. My wife had a meal that wasn't brilliant and said we wouldn't go again. To be fair every restaurant has a bad day from time to time. Good luck to them and I hope they have... More

Used to eat at this establisment often. Not been for several months and, oh boy, has it nose dived? We watched as the one young waitress did her best to do everything, from clearing tables to cleaning the loo's, whilst the lazy and idle bar staff stood around chatting. Want to get served at the bar, yes, when they're ready... More

My husband and I have been regulars for many years, but over the last few months it's really gone downhill. The staff are all very pleasant but they always seem to be short staffed, tonight there was one member of staff running the bar, taking food orders, clearing tables and serving food! The poor girl was run off her feet.... More

Served by very friendly staff and didn't have to wait long for the food to arrive. Our 2 year old son enjoyed the play area which kept him... More

The Rising Sun advertises budget meals and that’s what its deliver. The food is fair for a commercial kitchen, the service was pleasant and efficient. Two well-kept beers, but drinks are disproportionately expensive compared to the food. The restaurant itself has seen better days and is in need of an “update”. It offer the advantage of early meals, and may... More
