Having read a number of reviews on this site, I had high expectations of the Rising Sun. However, I was slightly disappointed. Yes, the staff are very friendly, environment is nice and the food is good, but not exceptional. Nevertheless, I have a problem with value when comparing with other establishments such as the Tollgate Inn & Northey Arms. These... More

Booked a family of eight yesterday. Friendly and helpful staff. Amazing pub bar and restaurant menu. Best chips ever. Very good value. Will definitely look forward to a return visit soon. Highly recommended.

Based on trip advisor, stopped here for a long lunch on way back from Somerset to London. Amazing food, ambience and hosts. Longhorn rump was on a par with Goodmans but half the price, with fantastically crispy triple cooked chips. Giles is a complete old school west London character who does not abide by metric measures so beware! Highly recommend... More

Lovely traditional pub, friendly staff and great choice of Ales (so the husband said!). Watch your head on the beams which are a beautiful feature and present throughout. I would definitely recommend a visit in the area!

This is now the family favourite to go and eat. the welcome is warm friendly and genuine. It is almost like going to a friends house to eat and nothing seems too much trouble. The food and drink are excellent, and they are flexible if you want something slightly different to the menu. We will be back again and again.

Could not fault the food, service was a bit slow understandably as it was very busy, but when the meal was served it was hot and very tasty, we were not rushed to finish our meal, even though people were waiting for tables, have had many meals in this place, and will continue to do so.

Best meal out we have had for years, all three of our main courses were equally delicious. Deserves to be busier.

When we first arrived the place struck me as a bit odd, but husband convinced me that it was worth staying for lunch. He was right, the service was a bit on the slow side, very friendly though and it led to a nice relaxing Sunday lunch. The food was excellent. There was just the one vegetarian option, but I...

Often when hunting for a new place to eat you have to visit alot, most which you cannot leave fast enough, however this was not one of those. While trying to decide if we were going to stay, were made to feel very welcome, and stayed because of the menu. While catering well for meat eaters it also had a... More
