Set in the natural beauty of the South Downs National Park at the end of the commuter route, and surrounded by woods, ﬁelds and byways, The Rising Sun is a proper country pub with roaring ﬁres in winter and a vast beer garden for the summer. While they place ﬁrm emphasis on food, serving delicious home-cooked, seasonal dishes sourced from local suppliers, they also offer superb wine and beer and delightful, friendly service.
Pub classics are available all year round, while other menu items change regularly. A seasonal specials board showcases local game and fresh ﬁsh from the south coast. In autumn, you might be offered partridge and pear terrine with damson jelly, or pan-roasted fresh brill with wild mushrooms, trufﬂed gnocchi, cavolo nero and lemon butter sauce. There are plenty of vegetarian options, a children’s menu, and popular two-course lunch and early-bird specials. To drink, choose from Fuller’s real ales on tap, a good selection of draught lagers and an extensive list of wine, with 16 available by the glass.
Regular events include quiz and curry nights, an Old English lunch club, monthly live music and an annual beer and music festival held at the end of July each year. The Rising Sun even offers bespoke outside catering for your own events and celebrations.
