This is a good looking pub with a good space for a beer garden and a decent menu. It gets grubbier and grubbier though. I don't like toilets with dirty edges on the floor. Neither do I want to sit outside amongst cigarette ends, crisp packets and other people's mess. Give it a good clean. It will make such a... More

On a warm July evening we stopped here to have a family meal. The staff fetched a highchair very quickly and made us feel very welcome. The selection of drinks is good and the staff very polite. The outside drinking area in front of the pub looks ideal for supping on a hot summers day. The food we ordered arrived... More

There were nine of us in the party. We visited on a Tuesday evening, pie night. A choice of 4 pies, including a vegetarian option, very reasonably priced and it also included a free drink, excellent value. There was also a good varied menu to choose from. Everybody enjoyed there food, the staff were friendly and the service was very... More

First off this a great place for a drink - great choice of beers and lagers served by friendly staff. I positively reviewed the restaurant after the re-vamp in 2013 but since then the last two visits have been very poor. On both occasions we visited about 7pm for an evening meal rather than lunch, once a Sunday evening and... More

Lovely, comfortable surroundings, a warm welcome, delicious home cooked food and great value. The garden and little play area was an added bonus for us as we had a toddler to entertain (she loved the well behaved resident pugs too!) Looks like The Rising Sun is set to become our new favourite local!

A really friendly welcome from the bar staff in this nicely located pub with clean, fresh modern decor. Pub was fairly busy for a Thursday and if coming in the summer or in the holidays, it maybe worth thinking about booking a table. All meals were generous portions with beautiful hand cut chips. Batter on the fish was crisp and... More

The very helpful and cool Emily scores 10/10 behind the bar (as does the fish & homemade chips). Dancing Duck "22" was above average as well.

We have eaten here previously and really enjoyed. But today was very disappointing from word go. I stood at the bar for a while, no staff there, when she came she just looked at me and finished what she was doing, which wouldn't have been a problem if she had acknowledged me. I asked for menus, which were pointed out... More
