It’s Official!! We’re re-opening!!


From Saturday the 4th of July we are opening our doors for business once more.. and not a day to soon!


We’ve missed each and every one of you and we are looking forward to welcoming you back after what seems like an eternity.


We have worked long and hard to put in place all the necessary requirements so that we can open and safely meet the Government guidelines to protect us all, customers and staff alike. We know that you will respect and follow these guidelines and we have provided signs and guidance throughout the pub, inside and out to help you.


We will be operating a table service for all areas, inside and out so that you don’t need to approach the bar so please avoid standing around in that area. You can seat yourselves outside in our new covered garden bar area or if you wish to sit inside please ask a member of staff and when an inside table becomes available they will seat you.


From the 5th of July you can reserve a table in the restaurant and our new interim menus will be posted soon.

Food will be available 12.00-8.00 pm Saturdays and Sundays.


Our revised opening times are as follows:


Monday-Thursday 12.00-2.00 pm and 5.00-11.00 pm

Fridays 12.00-11.00 pm with a Happy Hour from 3.00-7.00 pm

Saturdays 12.00-11.30 pm

Sundays 11.30 am-10.30 pm


Looking forward to seeing everyone, from Simon, Anna and all the staff at the Rising Sun

The Rising Sun Freehouse


We look forward to welcoming you to our family-run freehouse country Pub Restaurant set in the heart of the pretty village of Shackerstone in rural Leicestershire near to the Ashby Canal.


Our establishment is children and pet friendly and we have a large conservatory overlooking our children's play area where you can enjoy a relaxing meal and a drink while your charges burn off some energy! Fancy a more cosy meal? Then eat in our Tudor Barn Grill restaurant and enjoy our delicious range of home cooked food.


Fancy a home stone baked pizza cooked freshly from our own ovens? What could beat sitting out on a summers evening with a pint of best beer...or a speciality G&T with a freshly cooked pizza with all your toppings!! Check out the pizza menu above...


We keep a full cellar with a wide range of quality ales, stouts and lagers along with a great selection of wines and spirits and we feature guest ales most weeks. We've been CAMRA listed for over 9 years and are renowned for the quality of our beers. So, with Sky Sports in our pool and games room, there's something for all tastes and ages...


With lots of local attractions, why not make The Rising Sun your next port of call?…
