Reviewed April 19, 2013

When I visited in April 2013 new owner-managers had just taken over, so all the previous reviews don't hold much weight anymore. There were definitely no families of dogs to be seen anywhere. And no bad dog smells.

Other reviewers claim it was empty/quiet - yes, but it is on the outskirts of a tiny countryside village so what kind of crowds were you expecting? We liked that it was quiet - service was prompt and food arrived quickly.

The owners of this establishment seem to consider dog breeding as being more important than customers.On entering the bar/restaurant we were confronted by a dog crate containing puppies and the mother standing by.We might have considered eating here had the whole place not smelt like the back rooms at Crufts.It was bad enough trying to enjoy a pint. Aside from this,the place was gloomy and grubby and the staff cool.Avoid.

The food was good, the desert was expensive and average. It was cold and the bar had a few customers, no atmosphere. We had a meal there a few years ago and were disappointed with our visit. I think the management has changed. Go to the Bell at Chittlehampton instead.

We arrived at the Rising Sun just as they finished lunchtime shift but they went out of the way to make sure we could still get something to eat. They were such a friendly bunch. Really interested where we came from and the area we were visiting. Nothing was too much trouble. We can't comment on the evening meals but the snack we had at lunchtime was first class. I would have no hesitation in recommending this pub.

Went here for a meal one evening with friends. Food was good. Not particularly welcoming though. Loo was plastered with mildew. Probably wouldn't bother to go there again although the food was quite decent and good value for money.
