Cheap and cheerful

Visited here yesterday for lunch and when entering we was given a table and asked what we would like to drink, seemed like an eternity before they arrived, then the food arrived soon after, but if your thinking of dining here don't expect gourmet food, it's exactly what you pay for, cheap and... read more

Been long standing customers for years but visited last week 7pm and was shocked. Changed to table serve but although staff were very pleasant we waited 50 minutes after drinks brought before food came which I can't understand as there were only 12 customers! Food not impressive. My lasagne was hard (overlooked) with a long strip of baked on cling... More

Myself and three friends visited the Rising Sun on Monday 29th at around 7pm. We noticed that the format has changed, and they are now providing table service. We were seated in the conservatory very quickly, and a lady took our drinks order and delivered them before taking our food order. The food arrived after 15 minutes and tasted amazing.... More

We went here on 6th June 2015 with 2 of our children for the very first time. We ordered drinks at the table (not advised), yet 30 minutes later STILL haven't arrived! So we got fed up of waiting, got up and asked at the bar where they were. They handed the drinks to us there and then and ended... More

Why change serving format - previously the restaurant worked on the basis that you ordered food at the Bar. For some reason, it has now changed to waitress service at the table except they haven't factored in the need for additional staff. We are regular visitors to the pub and have always had acceptable prompt service but last night we... 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
