A Queen Street pub that has been closed for over a year is now back in business. And owner Dawn Appleyard, who has 15 years experience, is hoping to bring it back to its former, busier glory.
Rising Sun officially opened its doors on March 25 and already has a popular karaoke night taking place every Thursday night from 8pm.
Ms Appleyard explained: “This pub used to be really busy a few years ago and I am hoping to bring it back to its former glory - but with some exciting new additions.
“I must stress that The Rising Sun is very much a family pub, where everyone is welcome, especially now, as we have started serving food in the evening from Monday-Saturday, 5-8.30pm, with something on the menu for all to enjoy.”
Alongside their food offer, there is also a pool table, a slush machine for children to enjoy and, for the adults, the pub now serves alcoholic slush, which Dawn says the punters cannot get enough of.
There is also a disco on Friday and Saturday nights, Happy Hour every day from 4-pm, apart from Sundays, and various drinks offers throughout the week.
