The Rising Sun Information


All four of our tastefully renovated bedrooms provide unrivalled views of the beautiful River Bure and Coltishall Common, where visitors can relax and unwind by the water’s edge, watching the wildlife and boats as they pass. A contender for one of the most picturesque spots throughout Broadland, Coltishall Common is bounded by attractive properties on one side and acres of stunning marshland on the other, while we are lucky to have numerous walks and cycle routes on our doorstep. Circular walks vary from 20 minutes to a whole day spent in glorious countryside, with the option of a canoe trip or narrow-gauge steam railway ride, if you prefer. Be sure to look out for the resident kingfishers, otters, heron and deer en route, as well as the Swallowtail butterfly. Inside the pub we have ample space for drinking and dining, with a log fire to keep things cosy during the winter, while the outside features a large patio area with plenty of seating from which to relax and enjoy the river views.

Having opened in April 2017, The Rising Sun is the newest pub within the Colchester Inns group, a family business that was established in 1989 by Matthew and Nicola Colchester, and includes five pubs in the local area. Like all Colchester Inns pubs, The Rising Sun is managed by a committed team and we are proud to have built a reputation for providing great service, value for money, and quality food served in generous portions. Our extensive menu is freshly prepared using quality produce, sourced locally wherever possible and used in season for the finest results, with some of our supplier relationships dating back over 25 years. At the bar we regularly rotate a choice of three real ales, with five lagers, two ciders and Guinness also on available on tap, alongside a carefully selected wine list.
