Welcome to the Rising Sun

An award winning village local in the heart of unspoilt South Downs National Park countryside renowned for its outstanding atmosphere, great food, well kept ales, long and varied wine list and charming staff. Stylishly refurbished, spacious and light and with vast gardens and terraces adorned with teak tables and parasols, this is a pub for all seasons and all occasions.

Booking a Table

You can book a table online or by phone in any of three zones (click Book A Table, select table size and then select the zone from the drop down): the heated and now semi open Marquee, the (uncovered, unheated) Front Terrace Area or Indoors/the pub. The online system allows for bookings of up to 13 people but Rule of Six applies inside until 19th July. Larger tables of 14+ plus must be booked over the phone and will be offered a bespoke menu.

You can move or an existing booking from one area to an another or amend the table size (subject to availability in that area) by clicking on the confirmation email. We aim to allocate a minimum of two hours for tables of 4+ persons but feel free to request longer if you think it will be required. Reservations will be held for a maximum of 15 minutes, so please stay in touch if you’re running late. No shows are an increasing problem in the industry and we may not accept future bookings if you fail to show up without warning.

Please note the lawns are now open for drinks only and we have two covered areas.

  • Please do not make online bookings for drinks. There is ample space so no need to book. If you would like to hold a large drinks party call us to make arrangements.
  • The marquee clubhouse will be hosting TV sport this summer so please tell us if you are looking for or strictly trying to avoid a sporty atmosphere!
  • Dogs are welcome.
  • I am sorry we are not offering our two course lunch, sandwiches or some of our hot bar snacks at this time.

I have been meaning to reach out ever since New Years Day to congratulate you on the STUNNING food delivered on New Years Eve. I struggle to find the words that might serve justice to the bone marrow gravy – absolutely the best I’ve ever had. The potatoes were outstanding – what on earth do you do to them to give them that depth of flavour? The beef was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth. Whilst we snaffled it all up in no time at all, I thought the portions were super-generous.
We gluttonously ordered four portions hoping our two teenage children wouldn’t be able to finish theirs, leaving more for us, but unfortunately, they cleared their plates informing us it was the best meal they’ve ever eaten.
Thank you for making a potentially disastrous NYE really enjoyable – we will definitely be ordering again soon.

I am not prone to gushing emails, but hell, last night’s date night dinner was top drawer. Can’t quite see how you’re making any money on it – and would have happily paid more for delicious beef – really well cooked. Dauphinoise so good my wife wants you guys to make trays of the stuff for the freezer. Your pepper sauce was the crowning glory in my humble opinion. Rocket salad is the Riser tour de force – what can I say – the tomatoes (I can live without!) and the ’shroom – earthy and delicious. Drinkable Malbec, criminally rich pudding – it was all completely delicious, made very easy and exceptional value.
