Welcome to the Rising Sun
A warm welcome from Mary and Ray to the Rising Sun, our traditional bar and restaurant.
We are located right on the edge of one of the most exclusive areas of London yet less than ten minutes walk from Victoria and Sloane Square underground stations. Despite the upmarket location we have managed to strike a happy balance between catering for the businesses in the area and becoming the 'local' for residents in the Victoria / Pimlico area.
It has been said that from the outside this Young's pub looks like a 1960s suburban family house. However, keeping in tune with the area we have an appropriately tasteful interior, subtle lighting, stained floorboards and Victorian prints on the wall.
Our evenings can often be quite lively, especially on a Thursday or Friday night, with the mixture of customers making the pub, we think, one of the better venues in the area.

The Young's range of draught and bottled beers of course and also at least one guest beer.
We have a good selection of quality wines.
A full range of spirits and soft drinks.
Tea and Coffee not a problem.
We are a Cask Marque accredited, ( that's the independent body that monitors the quality and dispense of ale in British pubs. Each pint is tested for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and all pints on sale to the consumer must pass. )

We serve a nicely balanced range of food. From bar snacks to 'lite bites' to more substantial meals. Also we feature frequent 'specials' ( see our blackboard ) to keep the menu varied. Our menu is purposely inexpensive, aimed at making it a place for visitors, employees of local businesses and residents of the area to spend their lunch times.
