Friday night was steak night with a free drink. Excellent ! A busy place, best to book ahead. Saturday we were out at the contest but had a Sunday roast on the Sunday evening, with a good choice of meats.Good value too. There is usually a musician on the Sunday evenings.

Polite, friendly welcome as soon as we approached the bar. Varied lunch menu, sensibly priced, order taken & food served within 15/20 minutes which is very good considering how busy they were. No complaints with the standard of food served at all. Fantastic views. Would certainly recommend a visit.

I often go to the riding sub for a meal and drinks with Friends it's a nice place to go with some great views on a clear day. They also let you have your dog with you outside which is nice. The new menu is OK but they have taken some of my favorite's off. But still a great place... More

Stayed here with my daughters and partner as part of my birthday surprise. Had a great time. We stayed one night but didn't have the evening meal as we were booked in elsewhere. However, we found the staff to be polite and helpful, the beer to be well kept and well served, rooms were perfectly adequate as was the breakfast.... More

The Rising Sun has to have THE best view of the Cotswolds. I've never seen any better. The hotel accommodation is pretty good, the food and drink is fair and you're always sure of a warm welcome. Would recommend a visit.

Great views, we had to book and nothing was available till 3pm. Sunday roast was great, even the veggie roast option was good, very surprising but worth a try. Overall great place to spend a couple hours with the family. The staff weren't exceptional, just ok.

Had been looking forward to visiting the hotel for lunch for some time. When we arrived we sat at a vacant table and started to look at the menu. Within moments the barman came over and told us we couldn't sit at the table as somebody was about to use it. There was no reserved sign and no belongings to... More

Yes it has a fabulous view, and the service is ok. Actually probably one of the best places in Gloucestershire to watch the sun go down. However that's literally all it has going for it. The food is absolutely the worst I've ever had. We were a group of 10, and as the food arrived we all just looked at... More
