The Rising Sun Pub at the top of Windmill Hill has now reopened, under new management from the man behind The Golden Guinea in Redcliffe and The Steam Crane on North Street. You can expect an electic interior, think ornate mirrors, flock wallpaper and upcycled or furniture made from recycled materials. The venue has had an extensive refit, including brand new cellar and rear terrace. A additional rear garden is nearing completion as we go to press. The new venue will be very much community focused.
Now serving three lagers on draught including Angelo Poretti and San Miguel and three ciders, Mortimers, Stans Big Apple and the ubiquitous Thatchers Gold. Like The Golden Guinea and The Steam Crane, there is a great line up of guest beer, currently including Arbor Shangri La, Electric Bear Werrd!, Lervig House Party and Tiny Rebel Clwb Tropicana, all on keg, with Anarchy Citra Star, Tiny Rebel Cwtch and Bath Ales Anthem on cask. Also on draft are Grimbergen Blond, Bath Ales Dark Side Stout and Shed Head American Pale Ale from Sweden. There is also a large range of spirits, especialy Rums and Gins, as well as eight wines by the glass and ever growing range of craft cans in the fridge.
Billed as Community Pub and nested in amongst the terraced housing at the top of Windmill Hill, they offer a wide range of events for parents and pre schoolers during the day, as well as an afterschool club and already have a line up of live bands at the weekend, as well as a monthly Jazz/Blues jam and a very popular Open Mic.
Open all day from 9.30am during the week and offering a range of coffees and teas etc to have in or takeaway with an accompanying range of homemade cakes and savouries.
Keep an eye on their Facebook page to keep up to date with events and beer lineup.
