About the Pub

The Rising Sun is an attractive property located in the village of Crawcrook between Prudhoe to the West and Ryton to the East. The Sun is a traditional one room pub separated into distinct areas, with a pool table at one end making up a games area, and the main drinking space situated around the bar servery. The attractive conservatory is mainly used for dining and can accommodate 30 covers with another raised area also used for dining and overlooks the beer garden. With a mixture of fixed and loosed seating, the pub is spacious with approximately 90 covers throughout, accompanied by a well-equipped trade kitchen capable of producing a quality food offer. In 2017, the pub was refurbished and is in excellent condition, with a cream and beige colour scheme throughout that conveys a comfortable but refined atmosphere with a more modern, sleek feel. To the rear of the pub is an attractive beer garden with a separate patio and barbecue facilities on different levels, providing an excellent space for the community to enjoy al fresco dining during the warmer months. There are picnic benches in place that provide approximately 40 covers and with lovely views over the Tyne Valley that make this an enjoyable spot to enjoy a drink. Stonegate Pub Partners are seeking an experienced food operator who can develop on existing trade.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Rising Sun requires and experienced publican with catering skills and a flair to develop a great homecooked food offer to complement the local wet trade. The new publican will also need to successfully build and develop ties with the local community. The pub has historically had a strong wet trade alongside the food offering, which needs some care and development to reposition it as a hub of the community and a drive to pub for those further afield.
