Available Function Room


A much-improved, two-bar, traditional pub in the town of Stanford-le-hope. The five guest beers are mainly from independent breweries, including local beers, and up to three ciders or perries are stocked.

We hold regular monthly live music and our beer festivals are held three times a year (spring, summer & winter) with the summer festival held in the pub’s large rear garden.

Family-owned and run for the last 10 years; we pride ourselves on offering a huge variety of seasonal beers.

The pub is very well known for its ever-changing real ale selection, with gravity-fed guest beers sourced from some of the country’s finest micro-breweries sharing the bar with some more established national brands.

Steve and Kevs Rising Sun Charity Challenge!

Rising Sun regulars Steve and Kev, two recently retired drinking buddies have set themselves the challenge of having a pint (at least!!) in every single Rising Sun pub in the UK (apparently there are 129). They will be donating to each pub’s chosen charity along their travels, however, they are also hoping to raise a nice amount of money for our pub’s own charity of choice, the St. Luke’s Hospice, Basildon.

They have set up a Just Giving page and will be grateful for all donations received and all of your support along the way. If you would like to donate and support Steve and Kev’s charity challenge and support a great cause then please click on the donate link below. All donations will go directly to St Luke’s Hospice through the Just Giving Portal.

We, The Rising Sun and St Luke’s would be very grateful for your donations.

What our customers say

On the way back from work - Stopped in for a quick pint! I have to say what a great pint it was. As a lover of real ale, that pint was the most richest in taste! Well done.

The Rising Sun is a warm friendly pub serving a great selection of ales all year round.
