good little country pub

This is a great little country pub between Crewe & Nantwich serving good food at a reasonable price. To top that they also have a good selection of real ales which you can sit outside in their garden weathering permitting

I've driven past many times, but never before called in to the Rising Sun. We stopped more or less on impulse. The layout and decor is genuine country pub. The sort of place you could happily enjoy a pint without having to eat. But what about the food. We've been dissapointed by pub food recently, but what a pleasant surprise... More

we stopped off for some lunch mid week, it was a lovely day but outside was very busy so we opted to dine inside. I had a bbq pulled pork burger which was delicious, the only thing that refrains me from giving max stars is the rather miserable waitress. Apart from that would highly recommend.

So I went to the Rising Sun on Middlewich Road after reading some of the poor reviews about the food, call me strange, but I like a good risk! Even after my visit I saw one reviewer who named a Staff Member (who, I might add, I personally witnessed the person and her companion reviewing being obnoxious to, it's amazing... More

Hadn't been back here in some time but had a brilliant dinner. The food was excellent with a perfectly cooked, tender Ribeye steak - by far the best steak I've had in ages. The atmosphere was good, service prompt and very friendly. What more could you ask for. Will definitely be going back.

Enjoyed very good food. Size of portion very good, service very good. Excellent range of beers. Being within walking distance from our home is a definite factor as it means we can enjoy a few drinks. The ambience is very good, and the fact that it was full is testament to its popularity.

A good local pub restaurant with a decent range of food and excellent variety of drinks. Recent change of management had not altered the service. Great for families in summer or winter.

There were three of us going as a quick meal on our way home, and I was the only person who hasn't been so it was different for me. On arrival, there is quite a lot of parking, and there is outside seating (probably not used as much as it could be due to British weather) Inside, it is pretty... More

Had plenty of steaks in these typical pub food restaurants but was well impressed with the steak I was served. Asked for rare and it was cooked to perfection. Will definitely be returning!!!!!
