The Way Inn closed its doors in late January 2014, courtesy of Enterprise Inns who fell out with the licensee because he had the temerity to stand up to them. During his tenure Enterprise refused to honour their obligation to maintain the exterior of the pub. Odd, then, that since his departure the pub has been given a complete makeover. What is even more odd is the decision to revert to the original name - the Rising Sun - especially considering the terrible reputation the pub had under that name. Still closed at the time of writing (early May 2014).

Looks a bit rough but don’t let that put you off. It’s a large, unpretentious, pub with various seating areas. I had a couple of excellent pints of Oakleaf Hole Hearted (a new barrel had just been put on so good timing on my part). It has a large seating area outside, the tables were in a bit of a state but pleasant enough on a warm evening. The locals may seem a bit scary but all seemed friendly enough to me.

A juke box, wow.

Excellent choice of real ales here. There is a jukebox as well.

Much extended from the old long thin place I remember from years ago. The front bar has been opened out and is quite a pleasant and comfortable place for a pint or three while persuring the old film posters, although there is continual music from an admittedly impressive jukebox. The back room appears to be largely given over to food and there is a garden out the back. Four pumps with two mainstreams, one going that way and one smaller brewers ware, that is Abbot, Deuchars, Landlord and Palmers, in pretty good condition. Close to the station and thankfully a bit away from the desolate town centre. Mixed bunch of customers ranging from Popley chavs to middle class diners.
