The Rising Sun was established in 2005 by two people who live in Thame, and offers the mix of a warm English welcome with quality drinks, and fresh authentic Thai food. In 2018 they opened two further restaurants locally – The Churchill in Long Crendon and The Chequers in Watlington.
Pad Thai, Restaurant and Takeaway serve a wide variety of Authentic Thai food, that you can choose to eat your food in the traditional pub restaurant with it’s oak beams, stone floors, and great beers – or order to takeaway.
Thai food is internationally famous. Whether chilli-hot or comparatively bland, harmony is the guiding principle behind each dish. Thai cuisine is essentially a marriage of centuries-old Eastern and Western influences harmoniously combined into something uniquely Thai. Characteristics of Thai food depend on who cooks it, for whom it is cooked, for what occasion, and where it is cooked. Dishes can be refined and adjusted to suit all palates. Originally, Thai cooking reflected the characteristics of a waterborne lifestyle. Aquatic animals, plants and herbs were major ingredients.
All three restaurants work with a local butcher in Princess Risbourgh to source their meat, and whilst the agreement that The Rising Sun has with their brewery limits their ability to buy locally, at The Churchill they work with a wine merchant based in Thame, buy local spirts from start-ups and have a strong relationship with XT brewery.
