Modern British cooking in a convivial harbourside inn

The Rising Sun rocks with good vibrations with its proper bar plus an atmospheric oak-panelled dining room. The food strikes a balance between hearty generosity and contemporary combinations, with plenty of seafood dishes. Start with a modern classic seared king scallops with cauliflower cream and crisp pancetta - or an 'old favourite' such as chicken livers enriched with baby onions, pancetta and a balsamic and Madeira sauce (with brioche for the juices). Next up, a generous portion of wild sea bass with samphire and bouillabaisse sauce, or chargrilled rib-eye with field mushrooms and twice-cooked chips, and finish with a well-made crème brûlée.
