It's a Harvester restaurant, so as HTM69 has pointed out - it shouldn't really be on BITE. However, as Harvesters go, it's a pretty good example and I've never had a bad meal in here. The staff are always efficient and the place is always busy.

I doubt I'd ever pop in just for a drink though.

split in two halfs,pub one side, restaurant the other, had to meet some one in here last night, I've been in worse places, still seems to have retained a decent pub vibe, although the beer selection is pretty basic you could spend an evening in here as long as you dont mind lager

As this is a Harvester restaurant, is it still known as The Rising Sun? Baring what this place exactly is now, does it even warrant a listing on this site? I don�t mean to nit pick to much though as I did actually pay a visit here with girlfriend one time and remember thinking how much better it was than the other couple of restaurants in the chain I have visited in recent years. From what I vaguely recall, the place was seemingly well-run and was quite tidy and as is nearly always the case, my meal was tasty and good value for money, it just seemed that this particular establishment had a little extra going for it. Recommended if ever passing by and hungry.

Since becoming part of the Harvester chain, every element of the pub's original guise has been eroded to the point that there is now not even a sign declaring the pub name. The interior has been extensively refurbished and will satisfy the demands of designer decor fans but traditionalists will rue the lack of any original features or character. The pub is divided by sevral wooden screens that look like they have come straight from the B&Q timber yard and the overall colour scheme and modern prints lean more towards a trendy art gallery than a cosy pub. The beer selection is disappointing with no Real Ales on offer. Food is obviously the usual Harvester restaurant range which geneally means good value and plentiful portions. Being a family orientated restaurant, you an expect hordes of children running around the bar or screaming because they don't like carrots. The bottom line is that it is OK for a meal and Harvester regulars will know what to expect. As a pub though, I wouldn't pay it too much attention.
