Visited in February 2017. Approx 8 hand pumps at the bar including at least one cider. I had a pint of McConnell's by Thornbridge which is a 5% stout and set me back £3. A crowd of workmen types were round the bar. Very traditional and old school looking inside. Bare board floors and banquette seating with some pews and mix of tables and wooden chairs. Main bar seems to be split into two sections and there is a further back room. I also noted a wood burning stove.

I love The Rising Sun. The views of the valley are beautiful, the selection and variation of Real Ale is exceptional, always well kept and served with a smile by the (more often than not) friendly and informed bar staff.
Sadly, on my last two visits I've felt uncomfortable about the extra curricular activities quite openly happening in and around the premises. I'm an open minded man with a "Do whatever you want" attitude to others and life, however, I'm not sure the smells of the "specialist tobacco" quite fitted with the families bringing their children in for a Sunday afternoon (wonderful, by the way) pizza. I'm a smoker and it was even happening in the covered smoking area to the rear.
I believe the landlord is a popular chap and has always been amiable on my visits, as has his wife (who makes the stunning pizzas) they keep a wonderfully clean and inviting local. I just hope for the old fuddy-duddies like me, this doesnt and hasn't become the norm.
I will be back for the views and the beers, but I won't be rushing.

Can't believe it! I've only just read the former reviews and discovered others have experienced similar problems. So I'm not being paranoid, phew! If the landlord and landlady ever read this, it might help for them to know because otherwise, you have a wonderful pub and have done a fabulous job since taking it on. I also enjoy the Railway, my friends are locals and would even consider myself a local.

I loved this pub until recently. It has a fantastic range of really good beers including two from Millstone. They also have folk nights and various other things on and I've enjoyed many a night there. However my last two visits have really put me off. The time before last, the barmaid served me a pint which I relaxed at the bar with. There was a man in the corner of the bar who the barmaid was obviously well acquainted with. It wasn't a particularly busy night but when I'd finished my drink and wanted another, the barmaid ignored me, served others and whispered things to her friend at the bar who gave continuous shifty looks at me. I wondered if it was me being paranoid and thought perhaps she hadn't realised I was waiting to be served but after virtually shouting for attention, I realised she was ignoring me. I had no alternative but to leave. As the pub is on my travels, after a couple of weeks of contemplation, I came to the decision that perhaps I had been paranoid and that the barmaid and man at the bar who I had never met couldn't possibly be behaving to me like that so I went in again (hoping that there would be someone different behind the bar). However, unfortunately she was there again and the man at the bar behaving in exactly the same way to me except no pint at all this time! Don't think I'll be going in again.

This pub has loads going for it, cracking range of well kept ales and good pizzas. Its also far enough away from the village centre to keep most of the idiots away. It falls down with the music which is often turned up to stupid volumes-so you can't have a conversation. This is even worse when the young bar staffs boyfriends come in and the place turns into a youth club. Shame as it spoils the place.
