The Rising Sun in Bashley reopens

Fuller’s is delighted to announce The Rising Sun in Bashley, in the heart of the New Forest, has reopened following a beautiful refurbishment.

In the picturesque New Forest, The Rising Sun has been transformed while keeping the country pub feel that has made the pub a long-term favourite with locals and visitors. Traditional colours, wood panelled walls and a fireplace are complimented by modern features and large windows – overlooking the beautiful countryside.

Outside, new wooden seating and huts make the garden perfect for year-round enjoyment – whether it’s for golden-hour pints when summertime rolls around, or to stay warm in the colder months. With its outdoor play area and large garden, The Rising Sun is a place for all the family to enjoy.

The delicious menu features pub classics, elevated by fresh food and seasonal ingredients – alongside a kids’ menu and bar snacks. Also to come in time for summer is a pizza oven, so customers can enjoy a wood-fired pizza in the gorgeous garden.

A full calendar of events has been planned for the forthcoming months – including wine tasting events, cider fest, a steam rally and Opera in the Garden. For family entertainment, Trivial Pursuit game cards will also be available on the tables for free play.

Manager Sasha Greenshield said: “I’m over the moon about the reopening of our lovely pub. We have put a lot of investment and dedication into making The Rising Sun the best it can be.”

Although The Rising Sun has been refurbished, Sasha still recognises a humorous familiarity: “However, I doubt the number of horses that wander our car park will decrease. But I think they add to the tranquil location that really makes this pub a wonderful experience for the customer. My team and I are really looking forward to welcoming you all.”
