what's gone wrong

Have used this restaurant before when staying at the Premier Inn next door. Never perfect but always acceptable and always busy. Friday evening between 6 and 9pm it was almost empty. Met friends for a drink - 3 choices of draught beer were unavailable. Ordered a coffee for one friend and each... read more

Yep this pub really does have a tasting menu...there's food all stuck to it so you can just simply scrape some off and "try before you buy". The table had (egg based) mayo and salad cream left out at room temperatures. The food was without doubt the worst I've ever tasted. I chanced the sharing platter - everything was cold,... More

We recently went here for a family meal, all I can say is, if you don't want to be scarred for life don't go there! The place was filthy, food and sticky stuff all over the chairs, floor and menus. We decided to play it safe and just have a sharing platter while other members of our party ordered meals.... More

Went to this pub (not fit to be called a restaurant) reluctantly as our last experience here was a bad one. However it was able to accommodate our party of 13 for a family meal without spending too much money so we agreed to go. Our table was sticky, menus were dirty and sticky. The food was beyond appalling -... More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon for a family meal with ages ranging from 1 to 76 in the group. The fact that only one person out of the group was actually happy with the food speaks volumes. The food on offer ranged from cold and greasy to nuclear and bland, if you are go to offer cheap and cheerful food... More

I've reported on the Rising Sun before. The food has almost always been reasonably well prepared, albeit on occasions not too hot. If you're not a meat eater, then the menu may not suit as most is off the grill. Not a great choice of fish, vegetarian or salads. On this occasion I have marked it down as my last... More

My food was cold so I asked for manager, he was on his break so I had to wait 10 minutes He then told me the food wasn't cold and that it wasn't supposed to be hot, just warm... He was rude and very snobby Won't return

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
