user reviews of Rising Sun, Brentwood

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

My 1st visit to the only Brentwood pub that features in the 2016 GBG and obviously one I had to tick.

3 of us arrived just before 6.45pm and with only an hour before kick off down the road we forced 3 quick pints down. The pub is almost open plan with no doors between the bars but 2 separate serving areas at the bar, the larger side was pretty busy while the smaller side that houses a tv and dart board was empty.

5 hand pumps with 5 ales on, I opted for Brentwood Breweries Marvellous Maple Mid @ 4.2%, a fairly potent drop even though it’s only at session abv.

Lots of chatter at the bar area between the barman and regulars, the interior is a bit tired looking but it works and gives the pub a homely feel to it.

I liked the Rising Sun but I have to mention the strange smell in the smaller bar area, smelled like a cross between blocked drains & stale beer.

Not a bad little pub. Friendly, quick service and the pint of Brentwood Mild was satisfactory if nothing special. A few stares from what I assume to be the regulars at the bar, but in a curious rather than an aggressive way.

This pub is a real intimate little place, it is like drinking in someone's living room. Fairly welcoming though I guess it is dominated by regulars. Real ale range is quiet good, though I am not entirely convinced on the quality which sometimes seems to be lacking. I noticed it is in the Good Beer Guide, but for my money they need to improve a bit. The pub is worth the 5-min walk from the high st though.
