You might think that a little pub on the edge of a small village in West Sussex with a name like the Rising Sun would be a cosy reasonably priced place to enjoy a little local ale before pottering home to bed. Sadly, in my experience, this was not the case. From the outside the Rising Sun looks like a picturesque little local, despite the fact that it overlooks a roundabout, it has a small area of decking and the building its self is rather pretty. Once within though it's difficult to know what to make of the place. The layout is more restaurant than pub with wooden tables to seat four and arches of exposed brick work in a late 1980s faux rustic style. There is a pool table in a seprate space to the left of the bar and a small fire place set a little way back from the bar to the right. The decor on the whole is inoffensive but has clearly been set up on a tight budget with cheep cast vases filled with plastic flowers and the odd horse brass here and there. If it were a busy pub, with a good selection at the bar and reasonable prices, it would be easy to overlook these short comings but alas this is not so. On the whole I find myself unable to justify a trip to this place especially for those of us coming from a little further afield.
