History of the Rising Sun
The first part of the building was erected in 1372 during the reign of Edward the Third. It was originally a bakery owned and worked by the Monks of the Diocese of Canterbury.

The building continued as a bakery, passing through different owners until it came into the hands of Edgar Rake, baker and brewer, in 1682.

Edgar Rake applied for, and was granted, an ale and cider licence on the 4th April 1695. In 1708 and 1709, building work was carried out and a much more modern structure was erected, but unfortunately, Edgar Rake died before it was completed. In 1709 Jeremiah Bedley, baker and common beer seller took over the new premises. He was granted a licence to sell liquor and named the premises “The Rising Sun.”

From the date of registration in 1709 until 1865, all the Rising Sun Keepers were bakers, who worked the old bakery as well as running the Inn. This had one exception, Keeper Thomas Lucke who came here in 1776 is described as a beer seller, baker and ferryman.
