Will Larter left this review about The Rising Sun

A back street corner pub with a central bar (footrail and hooks) but no sign of the original multi-roomed layout. It was quite busy with an after work crowd, and the changing of TV channels to pick up the Chelsea game indicated that it might well stay that way for some time. There are three hand pumps with Sharps Doom Bar, Wainwright and Woodforde's Wherry available. The Wherry was in very good condition, as indeed it should be at approaching £5 a pint.

A first in here (as far as I can remember) and if it was rundown, it's clearly had a makeover as it was pleasantly maintained, including decent lavs.
There's a central bar with peripheral pot shelf and attractive bar back. The floor appears to be clad with lacquered rough stone along with some black and white mosaic tiling, including to the attractive rear fireplace.
The interior is indeed geared towards vertical drinking with some high stools to the windows with beer shelves and a little conventional bench seating to the rear. The walls are clad with brewgalia advertising prints, which look attractive. Music was muted.
The three young barmaids were friendly enough though a bit inefficient. Ales: one unused pump, thereafter Sharp's Doom Bar and Bombardier Gold which was fine.
With a mixed crown, this is more a traditional boozer which is a rarity in these parts and I'd certainly come again but only if in the area. A wider choice and more imaginative ales would raise the score at least one extra point, though the pub is rammed early evening so best visit after the 9.00 pm watershed.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Rising Sun

Pretty basic for a City pub, with little in the way of furniture and very sparse decor around the 'U'-shaped bar area. Some basic food from something called B.O.B.'s & Co was available on my last visit, but that seems to have gone now (and the atmosphere is hardly conducive to eating anyway). Three handpumps on the counter, offering Rising Sun. Black Sheep, Doom Bar and Wherry (£4.50) on my latest visit.
