The Rising Sun is pretty spacious but a bit run down. During the day it's reasonably family-friendly and there are quite a few decent places to sit, a few nooks and crannies you could relax in. In the evenings it all turns a bit intimidating- there's no escaping the DJ playing cheese, which gets louder and louder as the evening goes on. As it gets much later I can imagine it gets quite a lot rougher as well, but I'm well out of there by then. Not somewhere I'd spend a Saturday night but for an afternoon pint it's alright, if a bit drab.
The Rising Sun is a family and dog friendly pub, specialising in Live Music, Live Sport, Good Food and Drink in a relaxed atmosphere.
