Location was amazing , food was good and the sunday evening entertainment was brilliant . We would certainly return even if solely to watch the sun setting from such a viewpoint.

I will keep this one nice and short - we dined in the pub here on a Tuesday night and were kept waiting for 2 hours and 40 mins for our food to arrive. This is something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

Nice atmosphere, accomodated our family with 8 month old. The food was good (fish and chips) and the hard cider cold. Friendly crowd! It is always nice to see the manage behind the bar helping out and keeping an eye on things. First rate!

The Rising Sun is not the typical neighborhood pub; it is somewhat larger, and has more focus on the restaurant. But it was friendly, with good food and the kind of neighborly buzz that one associates with people enjoying themselves. Very close to the Cotswold Way, making it a fine place for drinks and an evening meal for walkers. Certainly... More

This place is what it is ,an Old English outlet. Yes the menu is the same as many ,but the two course for £7.95 is simply wonderful value and the service from the young chaps is a credit to the management for smart hiring. Just watch how your table is cleared ,these lads are professional waiters and would not be... More

Prices of meals and wine was very reasonable. We all enjoyed the lunch , and all commentated on the service. It was far superior to any pub dining I... More

Visiting Cheltenham for the day, we chose to find a restaurant outside the town centre for dinner. Very nice location with lovely views from the restaurant windows. Meal fine, although main course portions were slightly smaller than other Old English Inns, where we regularly eat. Pleasant server - Janos.

I'd read the reviews for this place so I went in with low expectations. I was still disappointed. The room and bed were clean enough but the carpet was worn and stained (and really ugly). There was a double socket loose from the wall. The bathroom had mould on the walls and the lino was peeling away from the bath... More

Good service but you get the same fairly generic menu as at other members of the Old English Inns chain. The evening we were there the mashed potato tasted stale and my pheasant and lentil stew could have been any kind of red meat, it did not taste of anything. And they don't serve many vegetables. Maybe better to stick... More

We have eaten here on the many occasions we have stayed here and it was up to its usual standard. It is a pub serving good food at sensible prices. They are not trying to be something they are not. They give good value along with pleasant service.
