A very good pub, with very good staff, with a very bad beer selection. If it's trendy they sell it, if it's popular they don't, which means you tend to run out of enthusiasm after 1 or 2 pints.

When you walk into a old fashioned London pub you expect to be greeted by an old fashioned Landlord. Someone who is cheerful and welcomes you into the pub. Unfortunately this is not the case when it comes to The Rising Sun. The Landlord was abusive and rude to us (a group of 12 people) and due to this we landed up leaving the pub and looking for an alternative venue. It saddens me to realise that a pub with a great selection of ales and beer in such a great location can be ruined by such a bad attitude.

Miserable bar staff and foul mouthed customers. A somewhat bland interior.

Never again.

Despite having worked nearby for about seven years, I hadn't visited this pub until very recently. The interior is fairly unremarkable, although the large windows give quite a pleasant, airy feel. For some reason I'd always thought it was a Shepherd Neame house, but actually I think it's probably a freehouse. Three ales when I visited: Spitfire, Pride and Young's Bitter. Thai food. Not sure I'd return in a hurry with somewhere as nice as the Cockpit round the corner, but this pub is OK.

Visited recently - not a bad pub - decent pint of Spitfire, good location.
