The Rising Sun was tucked away up a quiet country lane about a mile to the south of Hartpury. It is actually located within the parish of Maisemore. The pub was also known as the ‘Salt Box’. Landlord Tom Madden believed that this refers to a time when a building on the site was used to store salt being transported to Gloucester.
