Welcometo The Rising Sun, Sheffield

A warm welcome from Garry & The Rising Sun Team

The winner of the 2022 Sheffield & District CAMRA Pub of the Year Award, The Rising Sun is a community pub and dining room based in the leafy Sheffield suburb of Fulwood. We have been operated by Abbeydale Brewery since 2005, and always feature a wide range of their beers on our bar as well as a number of rotating guest specials across both cask and keg. In addition, we have an ever-changing cider selection, a carefully curated wine list, a large range of quality spirits and plenty of non-alcoholic options too.

Our large beer garden is perfect for drinks in the sunshine - with covered, heated areas for rainier days too! The pub is also both child friendly and dog friendly.

We have a creative, seasonal food menu that showcases the best of British produce and sees us working with a whole host of local suppliers. Online reservations are recommended for those who wish to dine with us and our menu can be viewed here

See below for our current opening times, please be aware we do not currently serve food on a Monday (unless it is a Bank Holiday).

We look forward to welcoming you!

Our History a long-standing part of the community

A pub has been sited here since the 19th century, with its first appearance being in the 1859 General Directory of Sheffield. The name is said to have been chosen for pubs facing east and receiving the early-morning sun, which the original building did. The current pub opened when the then owners, the Sheffield Town Trustees, agreed to provide land for the widening of Fulwood Road free of charge to Sheffield Corporation in return for the demolition and reconstruction of the original pub - which the widened road (to fit electric tram lines in the early twentieth century) was built right through the middle of! Scroll down to see a photo of the original pub, with a much more familiar looking Rising Sun in the process of being built almost at a right angle to it!

The existing building opened in July 1904, operated by the Sheffield Public House Trust Company and with J. Rowbotham as the first manager (Warr, P. (2009), The Growth of Ranmoor, Hangingwater and Nether Green).

Mid-century, the license was taken over by the Courage group – and fun fact: until the 1950s, the car park behind the pub was a bowling green! 

In July 1992, the University of Sheffield Students’ Union took over the pub, with Abbeydale Brewery taking ownership just in time for Christmas 2005!

An extensive refurbishment took place in 2014, with the addition of a full kitchen and a feature glass-roofed extension creating the wonderful, welcoming and spacious venue we have today.
