Hi, Thanks for your nice review, we are glad you enjoyed your visit en-route! Also Just as a note, I agree the Big Lock is also a fine local establishment but is not affiliated with the rising sun Inn More

Visited here early evening with 9 in the party including a 3year old. Fantastic steak, mixed grill and children's meal. No complaints from the whole party. Very nice atmosphere, greeted by the owner manager when we arrived and left great touch. Will be returning soon

We have had several meals at this pub and have always been pleased with the choice of food on offer and the quality. The staff are always pleasant and friendly. A cut above your standard pub meal. The pub is always busy - at peak times you may need to book in advance. Well worth visiting.

My wife and I tend to eat here at least once a week, and find that it has improved immensely over the last few years. At one time it was like Russian roulette, but now it is consistently good. I do however strongly dislike the system of finding a table, and having to go to the bar to order food,... More

The food was good! The Portions were generous and the price was competitive but the tables needed cleaning and the floor was full of dropped food.........it just was not up to standard. The staff were working hard and were polite and considerate, but it was far from good having to ask for tables to be wiped. Perhaps they are short... More

Thank you for brining the table and floor issue to our attention, during busy times, the informal nature of the dining it sometimes happens that a guest leaves and another takes the table before we have refreshed the table and the area, I have discussed this with the team and we have I believe found a solution that services tables...
