This pub has recently changed hands, I have been there twice and both times the service was nonchalant and not customer focused. They ran out of change, a couple of different drinks requested and had a limited range of other drinks and snacks. The guy behind the bar was busy having a conversation with other people he obviously knew whilst... More

Quite quiet on Tuesday lunchtime but the welcome was lovely. Food excellent and there was a good choice of wines as well as the Gin menu ! Well worth the drive out into the countryside

Since the closure of the pub we hadn't been down and thought to pop in last night to see how it was all going. And oh what a change! The new layout of the pub was very welcoming, the food menu looks delicious and the new wine menu has a very good variety! The pub was quite quiet last night... More

For two weeks running I have received appalling service in this pub. I would love to say that the pub has turned a corner but it is getting worse. Matt, you promised better service and someone behind the bar or when they came from the back they would ask who was next instead of going to first person they see.... More

We booked a table or last Tues night, there was a very quite atmosphere. The manager welcomed us in, we were a party of 4 one of whom is a veggie. There was only one main and not one veggie starter, my friend doesn't eat fish. There was only a veggie lasagne as a main, so she ordered garlic bread... More

Well, this place has gone down hill. No food served after 5pm on Sundays. Was told they serve food at the "Chinkies" down the road. The place is usually buzzin on a weekend. There was only a few drunk loud gutter mounts sat at the bar. The barman obviously wasn't bothered with his disgusting, offensive language about females. 2 female... More

First visit after the change of management. We were a little apprehensive as we have always enjoyed the food etc. Needn't have worried still very good if not better! Just a couple of things, my partner had the steak which was good however came with none of the trimmings you would normally associate with this type of order, looked a... More

Ate at the Rising Sun last week, the starters of smoked haddock fish cakes was really good, sea bass was good too, steak was not so good very fatty. But the manager took money of our billl due to this. The waitresses were very pleasant and continually checked everything was ok. We really went because of the gin menu, it... More

I was one of a number of walkers who visited The Rising Sun in Clanfield on a Saturday to enjoy a drink and eat. The walk leader took our food order prior to us commencing the walk over the South Downs so when we returned around midday there was little delay in our food being served. I believe that everyone...
