This pub has reopened as the Rising Sun/Marble Hill a ‘food led pub’ under new management which is ‘open all day offering freshly cooked food, great ales/beers and specially selected wines’. The new tenant is Jamie McCarthy of Marble Hill [UK] Ltd, which is said to be backed by Chinese restaurateurs. I have a report of a friendly welcome the other day but have not yet been in myself. The website has not yet been updated. The pub has lost its entertainments licence so it is no longer a music venue.
Residents, including children, are invited to a drinks evening at 6 pm on Sunday July 26. RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org or just turn up. They say that ‘this drinks evening will be a great opportunity to voice any previous concerns and how can work closely together into the future’.

I've only ever had negative issues with the Rising Sun, so fingers crossed this positive will finally outweigh them!
Looking forward to seeing it all in actionRobyn on 2009-07-16 13:04:41 +0000
The pub will be renamed The Marble Hill 'from 6 pm' today, Friday August 28.
The old website is defunct and there is no sign of a new one yet; there is a menu outside. I have taken lunch there once and can report that it is definitely a gastropub [i.e. cooked meals cooked to order] and doesn't do 'pub grub'.
The naff decor created by Youngs' refurbishment only a year ago remains unchanged.Chris Squire on 2009-08-28 09:38:03 +0000
