The Rising Sun is a charming country in based in the delightful village of Middleton, Matlock. Set in the Derbyshire hills, The “Sun” as we are known offers a warm and cheery welcome. We welcome families, dog walkers, locals and tourists alike. Our menu is second to none and our Sunday lunches are more than worth the walk up the hill!!! Sky sports, and attractive offer of entertainment and STUNNING views of the peaks makes a visit to The Sun and event rather than “just the one”.
