The Rising Sun
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Natalie and Nigel have a simple ethos at their quintessentially English pub – to serve simple British classics well. I’m happy to report that they more than deliver. Before tucking in, we relaxed in the magnificent conservatory-style extension, but noted the beautiful gardens for return summer visits. The homemade crab and lobster fishcake melted in the mouth and the deep-fried Brie oozed gooey goodness and was served with tart cranberry sauce. Next, we enjoyed mouth-watering rib-eye steak with peppercorn sauce and all the trimmings and traditional steak and kidney pudding accompanied by al dente vegetables. The crème brûlée was complemented by beautifully fresh fruit and clotted cream ice cream. The extensive wine list suits every palate and budget. Older patrons should take advantage of the weekly bargain Golden Years menu, and Sunday lunch is incredibly popular, so booking early is advised.
