“Enormous menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The menu is enormous. I can guarantee there will be something you like. The portions are very reasonable as are the prices!

“Food order declined by jobsworth after being one minute late”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

The menu looked great, but sadly I wasn't able to order any food. The kitchen apparently closed at 2pm. Despite arriving at the bar ready to order at 2.01pm, I was told in no uncertain terms that I would not be able to order food. Of course I could understand if I was 10 minutes late, but one? There I was, starving, ready to spend around £40 on three meals with drinks, yet was turned away because I was seconds past the kitchen closing time. I would have expected a bit of flexibility in the name of customer service, but sadly this was found to be lacking at the Rising Sun. Nonetheless I took my custom down the road to The Swan Hotel where we enjoyed three delicious meals. So if you're thinking of eating at the Rising Sun, make sure it's at a convenient time for the staff.

“Super Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Very busy little restaurant that is well worth a try. Menu is jam packed with mouth watering dishes. The deserts looked fantastic, unfortunately we didn't make it that far due to being so full from the main.

Lovely place to eat.

“Wonderful traditional pub - the same as its always been”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

What a lovely cosy pub - the same as its always been. Not sawdust and spittle type but cosy, warm and lovely with old fashioned bar. Apparently its the only pub in England that occassionally still has a queue at 5.30 of people wanting to get a seat in its lovely cosy atmosphere.
