I visited the Rising Sun with friends as we were in the area and had heard that it had a good reputation. Looking forward to a nice meal we ordered two of the specials and one main from the menu. However, it was actually the specials that really let the side down. The pork and apple burger hadn't been near an apple in it's lifetime and was ridiculously small for the size of the burger bun, which I hasten to add, must have been the cheapest bun they could have purchased when they went to their local Bookers! The accompanying potato wedges were overcooked and on the edge of being burnt. The second special was marginally better, but again overcooked and the side salad was swimming in a shop-bought dressing. I consider myself a fairly competent cook, and making a salad dressing isn't beyond even my means, so I would hope that even a simple homemade dressing would have been better that a shop-bought one. So, here is where the meal gets a little better, the fish and chips were very good; the portion size was generous, the chips well cooked and the peas had a little bite left to them. All in all the location is a great as it overlooks the broads and on a summer's day this would be perfect, however the food on this occasion really let them down.
