At the heart of Frampton Cotterell, is, of course, The Rising Sun. It has been the heart of Frampton Cotterell for decades and welcomes all, including our four-legged friends.


It is one of the few rare independent Real Alehouses left in Bristol.“A superb free house that has been the mainstay of the CAMRA GOOD BEER GUIDE for as long as anyone can remember. A former CAMRA pub of the year, renowned for conversation and conviviality.” (taken from The Good Beer Guide ). 


The Rising Sun has now become the Brewery Tap, showcasing our own ales brewed at The Great Western Brewing Company (GWB) just down the road in Hambrook.
