Covid safe Excellent food and beer
Great place. Love it. Will eat there next time.
The pub is handling this difficult time very well and the service,, food and beer continues to be excellent. It feels a safe and secure environment
Great service and even better beer. Food very good.
Excellent, keep up the good work
Fantastic customer service, great food & very COVID secure.
Excellent service, great good and drink. Well thought through health/distancing measures. Super easy ordering and paying through app/mobile web.
I think the way everything has been organised to keep everyone Covid safe is excellent. We didn’t eat on this visit, just a couple of drinks in the beer garden. Add a few more lights and planters to make it perfect.
Very good service, in fact everything about the visit was good, thank you
Every thing was really good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Tables spacing good
Top notch experience!
Beer and cider 10 too.
A simple menu on offer at the moment coming out of lockdown, but all good hearty and tasty meals. The chips were superb - worth mentioning because pub chips are ususally useless. The range of starters on offer were so good, my girlfriend and I decided to go Tapas style and have all ten as our meal. This was a great decision, as they were really, really tasty!
Love the Rising Sun and in this mad world we're living in at the moment I think they are managing to do the best they can. My only criticism is that the food could have been hotter but otherwise an overall 10 out of 10
Food was 0 as we didn’t eat
Really enjoyed our meal and drink can’t wait for things to get back to normal but the Rising Sun is doing its best in this debacle Thanks
Everything was good staff were friendly and helpful food was lovely the layout felt very safe
The staff are lovely at this pub. Nothing is too much trouble. It was a quiet day and all provisions to combat this awful virus were in place. We all need to be patient, things take a little longer than the norm but that's fine. The food was excellent even though a reduced menu. My congratulations and thanks to everyone who did their utmost to provide a safe, yet convivial atmosphere under these strange times which we are living in.
Great service and food as always !
First meal back after lockdown - great experience all round. 'Limited' menu worked a treat for us. Environment felt safe. Good social distancing achieved and lots of cleaning and hand sanitisers.
Beers , Food , Service all excellent a lovely evening all round
Well looked after by the staff.
Really well thought out in the beer garden. Haven’t sat inside yet. I know the beer garden is actually the car park,but why not consider turning into a proper presented beer garden? I am a regular customer and instead of having to go through quite a laborious process each time why not have an app like the bookmakers do. You put an amount onto your tab and then add on as required. Would be much easier
This was our first return to a pub in >3 months and it exceeded all our expectations, thanks for great welcome, service, food and beer.
The Rising Sun has done an outstanding job in making adjustments for reopening after the coronavirus pandemic measures were eased iin England. Their use of 'apps' like TableAgent and other adjustments make for a slightly unusual, but overall brilliant pub experience that I have missed so much during COVID-19 lockdown.
Well organised and good controls.
Great food, fantastic home cooked pie, melt in the mouth meat. Roast dinner really nice and fresh. Slight improvement - Kids meal of fish fingers needed more fish, less chips.
We had a great time, thank you. One suggestion about the veggie burger - less paneer (about half of it) and a larger onion bhajee would be great.
As we did not eat I was unable to rate food, so resorted to a o. I love the Sun but rating a cold night in the car park makes a 10 difficult!
Felt safe and well-served - good covid security. Will be back for quiz again next week.
First time visitor to this pub / restaurant. The range of food on offer was not huge, but catered for all tastes and the quality was excellent. Very friendly service. Very impressed with the great range of beers. Will definitely return.
Unfortunately not all the wines on the menu were available
It was nice to be back in our local. We just had drinks - no food. The ordering process is long winded having to enter the same details each time we ordered. Table service would be so much easier which could then be paid for by Switch so no contact. Service was very efficient. I’m not sure of the rationale for placing the drinks on a separate table when the staff member wasn’t wearing gloves - we picked them up as soon as he put them down. He could just as easily placed them at the end of our table still maintaining social distancing. It felt great to be back.
Very good. Staff helpful with new ordering system & clearly a genuine effort from staff & management to make it a safe environment & pleasant, enjoyable experience. Good to be back :-) On a personal note, it was a much better atmosphere without kids running around unsupervised & climbing up onto the bar.
Good to get out. Food very good and an interesting tapas menu. Friendly, helpful staff in these covid times. Ambience was hard only because of 2m rules . Otherwise enjoyable.
The manager and staff are generally very helpful and managing the COVID issues well .. we enjoyed using the pub on Sunday afternoon.. we would probably have liked to have stayed beyond our 3 hour slot , we were a small local family of 4 , to have a couple more drinks after eating our meals. We were told 3 times during our meal that we would need to leave at 5.00pm and asked to leave at 5.00pm , therefore we made plans to leave... upon asking the manager what the procedure was for staying beyond our allotted time He informed us that it’s at his discretion and we could have indeed stayed longer ! We understand that there is a nervousness about the organising at present But this was a little disappointing as we would have liked to have extended our visit and the pub was virtually empty as we were leaving ... this could be addressed for locals in quiet times ?? One other point that we commented on was the delivery and collection stations ...in practice these Stations seemed to add to the double handling and passing backwards and forwards of glasses plates cutlery condiments etc and I am sure that this is under review ... overall an enjoyable visit to the pub and we look forwards to our next visit ...
Staff need to be more aware of customers’ needs. You have to wait too long for someone to check you in.
Great meal out with three generations. Everyone felt safe and comfortable. Sadly limited choice for vegans and also one main was forgotten so a delay. However overall great food and meal thank you!
Delicious food. The staff worked hard to offer a good service. I only rated the ambiance at 8 because the room was cold- but the temperature had dropped that evening
We were outside, tables nicely spaced and so much easier now with a bar to go to at the back as opposed to struggling with the app. Good atmosphere also :)
Slow entry when pub was quiet - waitress wiping empty tables rather than allowing us in. No white wine selection apart from 1 bottle ! Not heard of Tesco - next door or they could have made an emergency visit to Majestic Wines. Don’t understand. Otherwise enjoyed-we like the pubs atmosphere and being dog friendly. Going elsewhere tonight because of wine situation. John & Anna Columbine
Good organisation in respect of coronavirus and very good service.
Under the current circumstances, the limited selection of food and drinks was totally understandable and didn’t detract from an enjoyable visit. Booking a table was easy (online), the staff on the day were organised and the food, drinks and service couldn’t be faulted.
Our first trip to the pub since lockdown. Booked a table outside. Everything was great, socially distanced & the staff were excellent, prompt service & safe delivery. We didn’t eat. Looked like the car park it normally is but that’s no one’s fault. We’ve booked to go with frOe Xs again.
Excellent organisation and service. Bit quiet inside which lessened the atmosphere slightly, but overall thoroughly enjoyed being back in the pub! Well done.
Better than I thought it would be given the new system we have to get used to. Worked well and enjoyed the evening
liked perspex round bar but would have looked better with wickes backing taken off
Beer excellent Padron peppers, fish goujons, chips all fine Whitebait and caesar salad very disappointing
Missed your nice crisps. Our group was fine as we were 3 couples, but it may be good to explain that with the tables outside if you sitting 8 you have to sit very very close to the person sharing your seat. We enjoyed the evening thank you
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation the menu was limited but tasty. Atmosphere in the pub was lacking due to only a few guests been allowed in at any time.
