OUR PUB

Warm comfortable bar, with real ales and local drinks

The Rising Sun is a quintessentially English Inn, nestled in the Somerset Moors just a stones throw from Taunton; waiting for you whether you are hankering after a pint of well-kept local ale, an Espresso martini or to chat wine.

 

The bar is open from 10.30am Wednesday to Saturday, for morning coffee, a refreshing drink after a walk or an afternoon with friends; no obligation to dine - but you might not be able to resist.

"Wine cheers the sad, revives the old, inspires the young, makes weariness forget his toil." --- Lord Byron

We have a number of trusted wine suppliers, who understand our ethos and style; they provide us with both classic and unusual wines - most of which we have tried. We are sure that the classic wines are all shining examples of what you have come to expect from your favourite grape varieties.
