The Rising Sun
Ranked #1 of 1 Rogerstone B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 13, 2012

A group of friends and myself meet regularly at The Rising Sun where we enjoy good food and a friendly atmosphere. The menu is good, with something for everyone. The meal is substantial, appetizing and always enjoyable. The staff are friendly and happy to accomodate everyone's needs and the prices affordable. What more can one ask. I would certainly recommend it to anyone. The Landlady has a lovely personality, is extremely kind and helpful.

Room Tip: I have not actually stayed in the hotel as I live locally.

Went out for luch for the first time in ages yesterday, even though i live in Newport its the first time i've been to the Rising Sun Rogerstone.
I would just like to say what a very pleasant place it is, the smell of the fresh home cooked food on display made it almost impossible to choose what to have for lunch, because it all looked and smelt delicious.You could see just by looking at the food on display that it was of a very high quality. The portions were plentiful and it was very good value for money.
The staff were very friendly, we had a very warm welcome. We ate our lunch in the conservatory over looking the channel, it was absolutely perfect.
We will certainly be visting there more regular. Highly recommended.

In years gone by, pub meals at the Rising Sun have been first rate, very good value for money and the pub has always been packed, but no more! Eating there yesterday afternoon, we found the pub half empty and the food expensive and of a very low standard. Contrary to what is claimed on the pub's Web site menu, the average cost of a meal on the bar menu was about £15. Maybe the pub's Web menu has not been updated for 10 years? We ordered two meals (1) a steak and mushroom meal and (2) what was described on the menu as a "meat eater's delight" - pork spare ribs and steak. Both meals were inedible. The mushrooms with the steak meal definitely tasted "gone off". We both tasted them to confirm this. The steak component of the "meat eater's delight" meal was , as thin as shoe leather and tasted like it too! Also, the spare ribs had hardly any meat on them. When we complained, the staff that had served the meal refused to taste the mushrooms (wise move!) and the meals were hurriedly taken away. We were told that the proprietress would come to deal with our complaint. She did eventually appear - some 15 to 20 minutes later! She was rude and abrasive, did not apologise for keeping us waiting and refused to give her name. She was completely dismissive of our complaints. We were both ill the next day, which we put down to the mushrooms. Needless to say, we have made our last visit to the Rising Sun, which is a great pity because this used to be a excellent pub that served first-class meals at reasonable prices. Not any more!

Room Tip: We did not stay at the pub so we cannot comment on the rooms. If you stay there, eat somewhere else...

We've enjoyed a few great meals in thus local Hotel although we've never stayed here. The food is great, home cooked food and generous portions. Well worth a visit for a nice meal.
