    This was a last minute booking for us as we decided we wanted to go out for dinner for the evening, we were not left disappointed. We had such a lovely evening and was fully accommodated and well looked after. The food was so delicious and the attention to detail and presentation of the food was brilliant. The food tasted so fresh and was served warm and contained lots of flavour. I cannot fault our evening at The Rising Sun as the whole experience was so lovely and we left with our tummy’s being full of delicious, warm , flavoured food. We will be returning very soon as we are excited to try many other dishes of the very long menu.

    Very busy Friday night but everything was well organised, with good quality of service and excellent food. Live in hope that one day there will be a house red wine that’s better value for money but that’s the same wherever you go!

    I went for a vegan option with tofu that had been fried. Tofu has a very mild flavour that relies on spices or sauce to gee it up. Unfortunately the flavour of this tofu was of old cooking oil, not even fresh oil! I didn't eat much so rather an expensive dish and when mentioned the waiter didn't seem too concerned.

    We had dinner here and it was a lovely venue with a cosy atmosphere. We chose the set banquet menu and the food was delicious and plentiful! It was excellent value. The mocktails were delicious too. This was our first visit but we would definitely return. Highly recommended.

    Great Thai food. Booked an inside table, but they called to say they only had a garden one left. However, the covered garden dining area is now very pleasant, and it was probably for the best.

    Staff very non descript and not seemed bothered about guest service . Food quality was very poor , no flavour and dishes lacked many Thai ingredient like Thai basil , when we asked waitress she said she didnt know ! 3 chillis hot was very mild and bland . Wrong starters brought out . No follow through to ask if everything ok. Even when we left most of the dishes , as inedible ,we were not asked if everything was ok ? This is 3rd time we have been to Pad Thai , hoping it would improve , but that will be the last time ! Very disappointed as it was a special treat birthday for my kids. We live in Thailand part yearly , so know that this food does not represent Thai cuisine !
