Previously owned by the Woodward family for nearly 100 years, the pub was known throughout Cheshire as one of the county’s leading saddlers making it popular with both travellers and locals.
“We’ve worked hard to capture the atmosphere and spirit of the old Rising Sun whilst giving it a fresh and up-to-date look,” said new landlord Stuart Wraith (pictured centre with his team). “It’s been a busy couple of months and we can’t wait to serve the Tarporley community once more.”
The refurbished pub retains its original fireplaces, along with a mix of old and new furnishings while a new courtyard garden provides an al fresco dining area.
A new menu features a range of British pub classics including Robinsons ale battered cod with triple cooked chips, Welsh lamb and fresh seasonal salads like smoked mackerel and horseradish alongside delicious locally sourced asparagus with poached eggs and spicy chorizo scotch eggs.
William Robinson, Managing Director (Pubs Division) for Robinsons, said: “We are delighted to be giving the Rising Sun back to the Tarporley community. It is a classic example of a pub at the heart of its community which has evolved at each point in its rich history to reflect the needs and requirements of its customers.”
