Good Beer Guide Entry 2019.

Popular canal side location with very scruffy tables outside. Could do with a good clean.

Inside, its wooden interior with a central bar and rather small. The bar is fiercely guarded by bar hoggers who obviously lost their space once, as they won't give up an inch.

Meant it was tricky for me to fully review the beers on handpull. I didn't recognise any of the pump clips but always prepared to try - if only I could have seen what was on offer.

Instead, and as it was a red hot day - I went for a Camden Hells Lager - served in a unique glass from the brewery.

Would certainly revisit....

Excellent locals pub, tho perhaps a bit too twee for some. Excellent pint of Tring Risers Bitter. Good and friendly service. They get it right, while the Boat a few yards down the canal get it so wrong.

Always on the lookout for a new pub, our original plan before a Tuesday night visit to the MK Arena was a trip to the Red Lion in Fenny Stratford. But we received reports that it was closed for a funeral. So instead we paid an impromptu return to the Rising Sun. Rather disappointingly (at first), nearly all the ciders appeared to have sold out. But one guy returned from a stock take to find 20 boxes in the cellar. The evening suddenly got better. The 6 I tried were Millwhites Riser Cider (on handpull), Ventons Sweet, Lyme Bay Chapel Rock, Wrights Scrumpy & Tutts Clump Blackberry & Jazz. Amongst others on were Tutts Clump Perry, Nempnetts Piglets Choice, Westcroft Dry & Westons Family Reserve. The 5 ales were Red Willow Wreckless, Whitstable East India Pale Ale, By The Horns Stiff Upper Lip & Tring Riser Bitter & Drop Bar. There is also an impressive array of craft beers in the fridges, many in cans. The Rising Sun has knowledgeable staff and is a very pleasant place to spend a summer's evening either in the airy bar area or outside watching canal boat owners and pedestrians navigating the locks. I'm glad I've finally made a return visit. Improving my rating to 9/10.

Great pub by the canal. When we visited there was a beer festival in the back garden with 20 ales on offer - my Colchester ale was perfectly quaffable. The clientele is well-heeled and young and a bit noisy. But this is a deservedly busy pub.
Definitely worth a visit.

A good traditional pub. Well run by Nigel and Mark and easily the best pub in Berkhamsted. A great place to spend summer evenings watching the barges go by. In the winter this tiny pub gets very crowded and can be quite uncomfortable. This is not helped by people bringing their children there, often on Fridays when it it extra-crowded - and there is free food. This is not a 'family pub'...if there is such a thing. Otherwise, faultless.
