In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Originally only licensed as a beerhouse, the Rising Sun got a full license in 1962 (February 5th).

It's reported as having closed on December 20th 1965, when the license was transferred to Tudor House (which was a licensed restaurant rather than a pub).

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
