Nestled deep in the Bournemouth countryside in South Downs National Park, you’ll find The Rising Sun on Iping Road, just south of Liphook. Offering traditional British fare you’ll find everything from fish and chips to juicy steaks, and every other pub classic in between. With stunning gardens and terraces surrounding - it’s the perfect location for an al fresco lunch with some antipasti or mezze boards in the sun. Alternatively, you can check out their sumptuous Sunday roast if you fancy catching up with some friends or family in the Milland area. With a great kids menu to boot -The Rising Sun is well worth a visit!
Love it here, our favourite local pub. Perfect Sunday, nice family walk then a Sunday roast. The lamb was lovely and tender served with tasty veg, huge Yorkshire pudding and delicious gravy.
Delicious food..... arrived at the same time as a large party...... difficult for the kitchen, we were a little late eating but lots of apologies. Very friendly... definitely return.
Lovely country pub with friendly punters and welcoming staff. Highly recommend the roast beef on Sunday if any tables available. Very popular place. We will return for sure!
It was very busy but our table was ready on time, the food and the service was very good we would definitely eat here again.
The most delicious pub Sunday lunch ever - the pub was packed, every table full with huge groups of people, so I thought we'd be in for quite a wait service-wise, but they did a brilliant job The roast beef was incredible, the sides were delicious (best roast potatoes ever), and there is a very tempting note on the menu saying that if you want seconds of any of the veg etc., to ask - which we did! To start with, we had a sharing plate which was beautifully presented; the beers were good, as was the wine list with a very good choice including some really decent wines by the carafe Really pleased to have found this
Love this pub for its vibe, friendly staff & open fire but whilst our meal was tasty enough it felt as though my husbands £28 sirloin steak meal was just plonked on plate with no thought for presentation & they even forgot to add the vine tomatoes advertised which we had to ask for ...I think it is important to remember that £28 is a lot for a plate of food and the value needs to be reflected in the meal you receive...i.e. When it arrives you want to think 'wow..looks fab..can't wait to get stuck into that!'. When food is presented with no pizazz it makes us feel like we should buy the same sirloin from our local butchers at a quarter of the price and stay in....which we don't want to do but this is what a lot of people do do hence the closure of loads of pubs. Our message is don't get lazy ...make us feel like it was worth the money and that it is was a proper treat....
We really enjoyed our meal - huge portions which we couldn't finish. A few of us had the wild boar scotch eggs which we all agreed were delicious and cooked to perfection. My son had the ham, eggs and chips as part of the Early Bird meal and he devoured it quickly saying it was the best ham he had tasted. The waiting staff were really friendly and helpful which is always a plus. Only downside was the open fire was creating a lot of smoke which made our eyes water a little and our clothes smell (we were sat in the bar area) so to avoid this in the winter months I recommend you book to go in the restaurant.
One of my fave local pubs, excellent food if a little over priced, friendly service and warm atmosphere. However on this occasion completely ruined eating experience by the live band, which had it been made clear when I booked that there was a band on I would have chosen to go elsewhere. I was meeting old friends for some food and a catch up and basically we couldn't talk to each other throughout the meal due to the noise. Now I love to go to gigs, recently seen Future Islands at Brixton and shortly Arcade Fire at Wembley but I make a conscious decision to go to see live music and when I book a meal in a pub I expect to be able to make conversation. We had no choice but to settle the bill and move on to continue our evening. Very disappointing.
The lunch menu is good and the prices very reasonable. Staff are welcoming, friendly and efficient (tap water was offered and promptly delivered - something I watch out for as many restaurants fail on this point). The rump steak was particularly good a great piece of meat expertly cooked. I also really liked the Choc and Caramel tart. My wife liked the fish cake starter and the (very large) chicken and ham pie. Also one of my favourite wines (Cloudy Bay Sauvignon) was available at a price I could afford! Meal finished off with a well made Latte, altogether a very pleasant lunch.
Service was a little slow to begin with and we had to chase them up to take us to our pre-booked table and then to take our order. We had asked for a quiet table, but I suppose in a pub that;s a difficult thing to find!, Our table location was a little lacking in atmosphere. The starters were excellent- really fresh tasting and the main was tasty but I would have liked more jus to moisten the partridge. A good range of imaginative dishes on the menu. Friendly host- Ben.
