A fantastic waterside pub, renowned in yachting circles, The Rising Sun consists of a large main bar on the ground floor, with a dining area on the first floor reached by means of a spiral staircase. Floor-boarded and atmospheric, the pub has an extensive menu which represents good value for money but doesn't do your waistline any good - portions are enormous. Staff were charming and made us feel very welcome even though we were a bit scruffy. Three ales on, GK IPA, Speckled Hen and Abbott, tried them all and found them all in very good condition. Highly recommended if you're sailing in the Solent, but I haven't a clue how to get here by land.

The picture at the top must be at night? Not the best of evenings to go to the 'Sun' with the 'Lads' on a wet Wednesday for our 'Sportman's' lunch. Started off with a well served Speckled hen. The pub had reasonable trade. As it was 'Spice night' we went for the: "A delicious Curry served with a drink for £7.45 Choose from a Becks Vier, Stella Artois or Kreene King IPA, 175 mm Glass of Chardonnay or Merlot or a standard sized soft drink". Now with a pint of IPA at just over £3 a £4.45 meal can't be bad. A selection of 4 'Ruby's' and we went for the strongest that would certainly light up 'the rings around Uranus' for most punters. All served on a bed of wild rice. We had a sighting of what looked like a real chef (not a microwave jockey). Another table had a monster 'steak and kidney' being served. We all checked and the plates were hot (a must in my old mans book). Some how looking a bit tatty after the re-furb but still tidy. The service was good and pleasant and the meal served up nice and sharp. All round, a good boozer and best in the Summer when you can watch the yachts sail by on the way to the Solent.
