We had previously stayed in the area and eaten at the Rising Sun and had fond memories. On check in we were shown to our room by a pleasant and efficient receptionist. We walked through a very tired looking corridor and sitting room (grubby sofa and whole room looked unloved and in need of a clean) which all smelt of stale fish cooking. Our room was OK but looked quite dated and the bathroom and net curtains could have done with a deep clean. Toiletries provided smelled cheap and horrible. Downstairs the bar looked clean enough but was filled with flies and sweaty walkers. The bar staff were somewhat stony faced and unwelcoming. The restaurant staff were pleasant enough but English not being their first language led to a couple of misunderstandings plus a less than top class service ("what do you want" being a common question). Supervision and advice would have prevented this. The food was quite nice but for the price not really that superb and the wines were wincingly expensive for the quality. All in all the Rising Sun is living off its past reputation in a town that is very down at heel and feels quite expensive because of it. The reception staff were very pleasant.
