5 stars

The destination dining pub well worth travelling for

The Rising Sun, Church Street, Pensford, near Bristol, BS39 4AQ. Tel: 01761 490006. www.risingsunpensford.com



The Rising Sun pub

What Mark said: “With dogs asleep under tables on the tartan carpet, a dart board next to the television and old bank notes pinned to the timber ceiling beams, The Rising Sun is one of those unpretentious and unspoilt village pubs you assume no longer exist.

“The Rising Sun is the local we all dream of having on the doorstep but with food this good, it’s now a destination dining pub well worth travelling across the city for.”

The informal Japanese restaurant hidden in plain sight

What Mark said: “Informal, tapas-style Japanese dishes at fair prices, Izakaya may not occupy the most noticeable spot but it is a welcome addition to the city centre dining scene and a healthy alternative to many pre-theatre pitstops.”
