About the Riser

The heart of Frampton Cotterell is, of course, The Rising Sun, or as the locals call it, "The Riser". There is even a song about it... It has been the heart of Frampton Cotterell for decades and welcomes all, including our four-legged friends. There is even a song about it...

It is one of the few rare independent Real Alehouses left in Bristol.“A superb free house that has been the mainstay of the CAMRA GOOD BEER GUIDE for as long as anyone can remember. A former CAMRA pub of the year, renowned for conversation and conviviality.” (taken from The Good Beer Guide ). 

The Rising Sun is part of Hop Union Brewery, which is located in Brislington, Bristol and features its own on-site taproom.

Skittle Alley

The Skittle Alley, which was refurbished in 2017, is used throughout the year for a Winter and Summer League. The Skittle Alley can be covered and hired for Events and Functions. For more info contact us.

Beer Garden

The beer garden is located at the back of the garden and is accessed from the car park or through the skittle alley. An order to table service will be available.

About the Food

At The Rising Sun, we take great pride in creating the ambience, service and menu to suit our customers.


We aim to create a pleasurable dining experience and believe a menu should be a thing of balanced flavours. When creating our menus we carefully consider what’s in season and how we can incorporate these ingredients into our dishes.


Our exceptional flagship Sunday lunch uses only the freshest vegetables and the best cuts of meat, including Slow Roasted Rump steak. (“ The Best Around”, so you tell us).

We have a wide array of dishes with influences from all over the world, alongside our pub classics and a good selection of vegan options. Our menus change Seanonally and sometimes monthly. Please check back here to see what's new.
