The Rising Sun is always a must when we are visiting the New Forest from Hertfordshire. We are been visiting this pub for the last 25 years and in all that time have never experienced a bad meal - good menu choice, superb food & presentation, lovely staff and excellent value for money! This pub really does have it all... More

We visited here with family members for dinner on a Saturday night and had a perfectly enjoyable experience all round. The location is lovely, with an excellent play area for the children. The menu was fairly varied with a number of specials available as well. I noticed some gluten-free options on the specials board, but didn't look too closely at... More

Quite a few of the children's meals are deep fried: chicken nuggets, fish fingers, sausages and cheesy vegetable cake. Although they do also have breast of chicken, pizza, lasagne, spag bol, mac cheese and 3 children's salads (Gammon, cheddar & apple, chicken & bacon). All reasonably priced. Fish fingers £3.95, spag bol £4.45.

Very disappointed with a lunch with my partner. We ordered the chicken burgers as we were having a casual lunch before picking up our child from childcare. The menu describes a succulent crispy coated chicken breast. It resembled the chicken that can be found in a 99p McDonald's burger. The coleslaw is also brought in and was absolute budget.

The gammon steak was great and huge, the Chicken and gammon pie very tasty as were the chicken dishes the girls ordered. The kids meals were both a very good sized portion, as were the... More

Visited here today for family lunch. Menu offered lots of choice and the food was fresh and excellent quality. Staff were friendly and efficient. The younger family members thought the play area was great too. Would definitely recommend this place.

We visited after a tiring cycle ride day out add a family and were pleasantly surprised by this place. The service was courteous and friendly, there was a great kids play area and the food was good. To be clear: this was not haute cuisine but good solid pub grub and decent size portions too. Pleased we stopped here!
