Very welcoming

Ended up at our local whilst on a dog walk. Couldn't have been friendlier. The dog was given a bowl of fresh water and even a packet of biscuits! It was very busy but our simple baked potatoes came very promptly.... Not the best but very reasonably priced.

I have frequented this restaurant on many occasion, normally for the views rather than the food, but in fairness the food has been adequate. However on this occasion, early evening on a Sunday, having to wait an hour for a roast, after asking the waitress twice about the delay, was just not acceptable. When it came it was poor, meat...

Perfect sunny bank holiday Monday so decided to visit for a quick bite to eat in glorious sunshine. However they've stopped serving food outside with no explanation or signs to tell you until you try and order (tables still have numbers on them), ruins such a nice place. Won't be coming here all summer now.

We chose The Rising Sun to be able to offer everyone who attended my Mum's funeral some refreshments. I really don't think that we could have found a more suitable place! From the beginning of the booking and talking to the staff, they made sure that the venue and the food was right for us, pricing it within our budget... More

We visited as a family and booked a table for 7 pm, we eventually sat down at 7.45 pm. We ordered drinks and had to wait for twenty minutes and ordered food and were served our food at 9.15.pm. Service was appalling food was very average and we will not be returning

This hotel has fantastic views, good parking, fantastic views, great food, fantastic views, friendly staff and fantastic views. But what really sells the place is the fantastic views (and the friendly staff).

What a change since my last visit in October and not for the better!!! Visited the pub on Tuesday for my birthday as enjoyed our last meal here, but have now vowed NEVER TO RETURN. I ordered Hunters Chicken, the chicken arrived swimming in Barbecue sauce and no cheese or bacon so that went back, as barbecue sauce should also... More

Went for lunch one weekday with my family. I had emailed the pub a couple of days before to make a reservation, but I never received a response. We decided to go there anyway but to arrive a bit earlier. This was a good move as it got quite busy. The service was friendly and relaxed. They had some good... More

Had a family Sunday lunch last week, we were well looked after and the food was excellent. Have been here several times over many years and have always enjoyed the ambience and food. The menu changes regularly and there are always interesting things to try. You can even bring your dogs if you want to eat in the bar area!
