We stopped in on a bike ride for lunch. The pub was very quiet but we were given a friendly welcome by the barman. The menu is standard pub grub but our order was promptly supplied and the portions were plentiful.

We visited the pub last night for dinner. It was fairly busy and we were warned we might have to wait a while for our food however the food arrived promptly, hot and tasty. Very good value.

There is indeed a garden behind the Rising Sun with several more tables. The 'boules' court has been renovated and there is a mini children's play area. Hope that you are tempted to visit - the sun is still shining!
