We made our second visit to the Rising Sun for a large family lunch, that is 20+ of us including children. The service, food and cost were excellent (as they were previously). We had three courses and each chose their own option. All were served on hot plates, as required, and we all agreed the food was really tasty and quantities just right. (We had pre-ordered as requested for a large group). The drinks were also reasonably priced. We had the upstairs room to ourselves, which was ideal as we had young children / babies in the group.

We had a super Sunday roast here. The slow cooked lamb as melt in your mouth. We also had the beef which was delicious. The puddings were yummy too, sticky toffee pudding and crumble. Visiting Mum
from Cornwall and decided to give here a try. So glad we did. We are sure to return. The service and warm welcome was fantastic.
Highly recommended. Thank you for a lovely meal.

We are so lucky to have a pub like the Rising Sun in our village. Jo and Mike, the owners, are warm and friendly and create a heart at the centre of the village, with events and entertainment.

The chef is fantastic ... we are never disappointed... especially with the Sunday roasts! The prices are reasonable too, for the quality and choice of food served.

Everyone is friendly and welcoming and service is always fabulous. Children, especially, are always made welcome and are never an inconvenience.

Both large and small groups are well catered for, with an upstairs room away from the bar for flexibility.

The garden is welcoming and river gives children a great play area in the Summer. Plus there are plenty of fabulous walks, starting from the impressive Pensford viaduct, literally on the pub doorstep.

If you are in the Pensford area, this pub is definitely worth a visit...
