Lovely atmosphere and great food .I had the chicken and chorizo burger and my friend had the chicken and mushroom pie , my husband had the lamb pie and the flavour and presentation was lovely. The staff are very welcoming and friendly will return when we are in the area again .

Walking in the Peaks leads you to some lovely pubs, we thought this was one, but appearances are deceptive. Inside looked OK, with a nice selection of cask ales which suited us as we are Camra members. We were greeted by a very grouchy member of bar staff who seemed to be in charge, very unhelpful, obviously preferred her regulars.... More

Ordered fish finger sandwich, the fish was painfully thin......the batter was very thick and greasy and I didnt expect tortilla chips with this dish! Pie crust was burnt and dry, panini was overcooked to the point of being inedible and when did chips have skins on? They were more like hard stodgy potato wedges. Look at why chip shops and... More

Swede and peas were fine but but carrots were old and woody. Warm welcome, not so expensive and a good atmosphere. So all in all its... More

Nice pub, friendly staff and good beer (Black Sheep and Doom Bar), near walks etc. Food we had not so good; pie was overcooked, fish was watery, chips underdone and batter not cooked. Did I say the beer was good?

Having had many a bad time trying to find somewhere to eat in South Derbyshire at the weekend, so I was very pleased to find the Rising Sun really accommodating to our large party. The food was good quality, the service was fabulous and the redecoration is really nicely done. Highly recommended and I'll definitely return next time I'm in... More
