Revisited yesterday and their range of beers is expanding and included a stout and German Altbier. Food is basic pub grub and very good.

Now a Brewhouse and Kitchen where the food is excellent and the beers are brewed on the premises and are superb. It opened February 2015. Only 5 minutes walk of the station.

ABSOLUTLY FANTASTIC This is a great pub/restaurant, wether your just drinking or eating, the choice of drinks is second to none, and the quality of the food is exemplary. Since stopping the Thai menu (which was great) the pub now delivers a gastro menu, focusing on using locally sourced fish/meat etc. They have a 'specials' menu, and a standard one, both changing regularly, depending on the seasonal produce available, all of which, is to an extremely high standard. I have eaten there on a regular basis, and the food is some of the best in the area (compliments to the chef), the bar staff are all very attentive, giving you a very enjoyable dining experience (well done) there are so many places out there where the staff don't know what half the stuff is that they're selling you!!! THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM! Wether you go for lunch or diner, I cannot recommend The Rising Sun enough, well worth a visit. I hope you read my review and take my advice, to try it soon! I'm off there for lunch tomorrow, can't wait...

Excellent Thai food; great range of draught lagers -Hoegaarden; Leffe; Vier; Amstel; Grolsch; Heineken Export. Staff really friendly.

Reserve a table, hI ave turned up on a couple of occassions on the spur of the moment and it has been fully booked.

Well worth a visit.

I found the food excellent albeit a bit pricey, but they are happy for you to just go in there and have drinks. Nice feel to the place, friendly bar staff and sufficiently off the beaten track to not get the nutters in there. Think they had 49er on when I was last in there and very nice it was too

No longer a pub but a Thai restaurant with a licence.

The Rising Sun is a small, cosy pub with subdued lighting and small alcoves. Serves very good Thai food all day and evening. Book in advance, though, for later in the week/weekend.
