The Rising Sun is a decidedly mixed bag, as we discovered on a visit one late Saturday afternoon in August. The exterior is neat and tidy with hanging baskets, which was promising. The interior is spacious, in a mock Tudor style (we suspect the building is in fact pretty old, certainly the ceiling and beams suggest so), but despite attractive appearances, the Rising Sun feels somewhat bland and unatmospheric. This may well be due to the fact that it was virtually empty inside on our visit, the spacious feeling of the place (and lack of music) accentuating this. However, the beer garden was also pretty much empty, save for a couple of families with young children which, given the lovely weather, was surprising. The screening of cricket on a large screen inside seemed to add to the soporific atmosphere. As for the beer, the selection was disappointingly unimaginative. This pub is superficially very attractive, and what's more, easily accessible from both Bromley and Croydon due to good bus links - but in truth, it could do a whole lot better. It's also never especially good for morale when you see notices about the banning for life of those caught in possession of drugs.
