Excellent pub - doesn't have the oldie world charm of a lot of nearby establishments - but beer, food and service is first class. Normal Fullers range, well kept plus guest ales. We have been here for a 'Valentine special' meal for two as well as with a group of 14 for Sunday lunch - which was well cooked and reasonably priced.

Fullers pub, but the beer was well kept...Food was good and certainly reasonable (taking the ealry bird option 8)...big garden...if in the area, worth a visit...

Yet another overpriced Fullers pub with the usual beer selection, over priced food and yuppie clientele.
Pub is quite basic with a billiards table and restaurant. Much prefer the Black Fox up the road

A party of us went there for lunch, a month or so ago. We had a good friendly welcome, which was at varience to the unfriendly telephone manner, when we booked.
The food and beer were excellent.

What a refreshing sight! A fantastic veggie roast dinner! To be precise, Gartin Field Mushroom with Caramelised Onions & Peppers and Stilton, Yorkshire Pudding, Roast Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables and Pan Gravy !! 100% vegetarian! I have been here twice before and this is my third visit. When I contacted Ben, the landlord, I got an immediate and super friendly response regarding my veggie requirements. It is always a pleasure to visit this pub and I highly, highly recommend it. To veggies, carnivores and fish eaters alike!

Had a great pint of HSB, there were also two other Fullers ales on the handles. We had two excellent sandwiches with some chips and salad included, we thought they were some of the best we'd tasted. Service was both friendly and efficient, nothing was too much trouble. Enjoyed our table outside in the sun too.

I recently arrived at the Rising Suns Doors owing to a recommendation from a friend. Even though we have been having some lovely weather it was pretty miserable on this day. I walked through the doors to be greeted with two things, a warm welcome and a hot fire (It was needed.) The pint of Pride I had was very good, there seemed to be a good wine selection and the Sausages and Mash was lovely.

Having lived locally for some years, but never really entered milland i was told about this new fantastic energy that had been given to the Rising Sun, or the Damp as it seems to be called by some locals Better take a look then. Started by having a few drinks which i must say there seems to be a great selection of wines both red and white and also very well priced. A change of beers once a month is also a good idea. The staff are very helpful and the overall welcome is second to none. We have now eaten there several times from a simple bar snack to a three course meal all of which i can say was excellent. What a great find and would love to live in Milland even if it was just for the Pub, keep up the good work Ben.

Have been to this pub 3 times & have endured loud rock bands in the garden, the landlord's taste(?) in music over the hi-fi, and obscenities from the (obviously not local) clientele. If you are looking for a nice quiet country pub, forget it,

Had a burger here once after the Black Fox (between here and Liphook on the old A3) told us that it would be a 45 minute wait before we would get our food. How honest is that?
Anyway came here as we were hungry..the food took 90 minutes to arrive!! Well you live and learn.
BTW although the waiting time here was too long by far, and not being told it would take so long is way out of order, the burger was very nice. Won't be going again though.

Clearly every good pub has a bad day. We went on a Friday evening and there was a party of 16 in the restaurant. It was so noisy that we had to be asked to be moved after the main course as we couldn't hear ourselves think! The staff moved us efficiently and immediateley but... The bread basket had fur pieces of bread for four of us, the outside was warm but the middle was very cold (Microwaived out of the freezer I would guess) The starters we ordered never arrived, apologies were prefuse and we were given free sweets as an apology. It took us nearly an hour to get our main course, one of the orders had been misheard amid the noise and was wrong and had to be returned. The pheasant was not cooked. We sent it back to the kitchen and the chef sent it back to the table saying that he could cook it some more but it was supposed to be wasn't pink it was translucent and raw. The home made burger was overcooked and dry. Loads of chips and bread but not many 'fresh home sourced vegatables!' The pub was clearly popular and I think we just got them on a bad day. There were too many customers and not enough staff. Everyone was really apologetic about the mistakes but whilst we understood - it is no excuse. They said they hoped we would come again....Sadly I think not. They need more staff if they are going to remain ahead of the game

What a transformation! I live near by in Godalming and last came to the Rising Sun a couple of years ago to receive an average bit of food and an even more average welcome. This time I received a fantastic welcome and food which will certainly be worth travelling back for in the future.

Found this pub purely by chance and it's excellent - good beer, great food and very friendly - just wish it wasn't 120 miles away!

The Rising Sun was such a good find for us. We stopped for lunch while touring the area and ended up staying for dinner too.
The food and menu was superb - all freshly homemade to order with excellent service. The pub itself has recently been aquired by brothers Ben and Sam Burston who judging by the locals we talked to, have brought many improvements and an air of excitement.
The pub has good sized secure gardens with plenty of tables and is suitable for families with younger children. We would definitely recommend a visit to this pub with an empty stomach for some good atmosphere and quality dining.

I have visited this pub a few times recently and think the land lords have got everything just right. The food is really very good indeed, the menu is varied but has all your old favorites, they use mainly local produce and even have a kitchen garden where they grow their veg! The atmosphere is very friendly and you seem to get a very warm welcome whether you are a local or complete stranger. Top marks! If only all pubs were this good.
