Additional information:

The Rising Sun Inn is believed to have been first licensed in 1573, and Michelle & Paul Fabian are delighted to take their part in history as the new custodians of West Bagboroughs famous pub. Its new Latin slogan is “Vivamus Libero Tempus”, translated “Time to Live Free”.

The couple’s vision is to return The Rising Sun Inn to a quintessentially classic British country pub by taking traditional pub cuisine to new levels of culinary excellence, taste and value for money.

Whilst the new classic menu will be complemented and paired with a fresh selection of local and international wines, Michelle and Paul are fully committed to maintaining and delivering a warm and welcoming level of service to each and every patron and will continue to serve the popular local ales, lagers and ciders that The Rising Sun has become famous for.
