About our Beer...
Looking for unusual beers?
You'll find them at The Rising Sun.
Being part of a microbrewery business, we are able to get hold of microbrewery beers which don't appear in the free trade very often, if at all. Some micros only brew for their own outlets and don't sell their beer much at all. But they will often swap beer with another micro to put guest beers into their pub or pubs. So look out for rare and unusual beers alongside old favourites. If you have a favourite beer from a micro you would like to see on the bar, let Robert know and we'll see what we can do.
And if you can't find something to your taste on the handpumps, check out the bottled beers menu!
The Rising Sun is well known for the impressive array of hand pumps which can be found located across the entire length of the not exactly short main bar, 13 in all, with additional space taken up by a further 9 draught taps. It's not uncommon for customers to find themselves a little bewildered by the selection, and indeed 'window shopping ' is encouraged! Each pump boasts a miniature blackboard bearing a description of the ale, usually starting with the colour and aroma before moving on to taste and texture to assist you and if your still unsure our staff will be more than happy to offer a sample of your chosen ale before you commit yourself to a full pint- after all, taste is a matter of personal opinion!
The beers comprise of 5 permanant Abbeydale ales which are always available (Deception, Brimstone, Moonshine, Absolution & Daily Bread), along with a pump dedicated to the seasonal 'guest' Abbeydale (or Doctor Mortons or very occaisional Beer Works) brew PLUS a further 7 pumps rotating guest ales from near & far! We try for a range of colours, flavours & strengths where ever possible to cater for all tastes.

Also a 'crack the safe' snowballing raffle which is not unknown to reach a jackpot of over £300! Well worth a £1 a shot.
Our 9th Annual Beer Festival
We will have over 100 real ales from across the country plus a selection of real ciders and perries available in our beer tent (situated in the car park) plus our Belgium Beer selection and a range of Abbeydale ales on handpumps available in the pub itself. As always there will be a range of food available all day with a hog roast by Whirlow Hall Farm trust on Saturday afternoon, plenty of seating areas and live music & entertainment in the evenings and at the weekend.
Keep an eye out for this years charity beer where 10p from every pint sold will be donated and you can also donate cash and any unspent beer tokens into buckets located at the bars during the festival. Please drink generously!
We are also looking for volunteers to work short shifts on the outside bar, each one will be roughly 1.5 hours and payment will be in beer tokens. No experience is necessary. If you're interested you can either drop in and ask for the volunteer form behind the bar or email us with dates and times you are available at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively give us a ring on 0114 230 3855 and someone will take your details.
Food at The Rising Sun
While we are refurbing the pub and building a kitchen our food offering is limited, but do try the excellent Pork Pies! You are welcome to bring in a sandwich from our local bakery or Tesco's to enjoy at this time.
On Friday's freshly made to order pizza is available outside the pub from Proove mobile pizza oven. This is available from 3:30pm until 9pm and is proving to be very popular!
Rising Sun News
Rob & Julie, who have been the Managers of the Rising Sun for over 8 years retired at the beginning of April and we welcomed our new managers Ryan & Nicole Tissington to the The Rising Sun. They both have a wealth of pub experience behind them and are already beginning to make the pub their own.
They have joined us at an exciting time as we are currently into our second month of major building work. This work is not currently impacting on the pub itself but can be seen externally in the car park ( which is still usable to customers). Our hope is to provide a more comfortable space with additional seating to offer our customers on busier nights, when it can be difficult to get a table. We will also be getting new toilets with more cubicles available and a much bigger and better equipped kitchen to enable us to offer a good selection of quality food to accompany your pint.
The Rising Sun has continued to maintain a presence in the Good Pub Guide and was once again listed in 2015, why not pick up a copy and take a peek.
We have been Sheffield Pub of the Month winners in June 2010 & October 2007 and hope to continue to add to our collection of these titles this year.
We are also Cask Marque accredited, as another testiment to our excellent cellar & ale management standards. We also have some staff training events planned for this year to help educate and improve our new staff members understanding of real ale.
We've recently taken on a few staff members after a few of our old faces left for pastures new at the beginning of the year. Some are brand new to the pub trade and some are old hands, but after just a few weeks it's already a challenge to tell them apart.
We occasionally hold live music on Monday nights so be sure to keep checking the website & the in pub entertainment board for updates. We hope to make this more regular once the building work and renovations are complete.
