About Rising Sun

 

This pub was established in 1730 and most recently re-built in 1897. An imposing four-storey structure with classical pilasters framing the second floor windows, a high parapet and a three-bayed return facade to windmill street is illustrated in 'Tallis's street views of 1838-40'. The Rising Sun changed its name to Presleys in the late 80's/ early 90's and was an Elvis Presley theme bar. The Rising Sun is now arguably the most outstanding Treadwell & Martin designed pub to have survived to the present day. You cannot help but be taken aback by this impressive Victorian pub.
