Fast building it's reputation for excellent home cooked food using fantastic Local Produce whilst still providing 'Good Traditional Pub Fayre' This is a Must try place. Offering Great choice of Real Ales from the Popular and Local 'Moles' Brewery in Melksham and with those magnificent views you really must give us a go! Roger & Kay look forward to Looking after you!

We recently stopped by for friday lunch.
The pub is nicely decorated, country style.
The staff were very warm, friendly and professional, dressed smartly.
We sat outside in beautifu surroundings and really enjoyed our platters one ploughmans and one fish.
Very good portions and delicious.

Would highly recommend and will go back with family to enjoy as the childrens menu was inventive and refreshing offering 'proper' food for children much more than the usual nuggets/burger and chips sadly offered on most pub menus!

Decided to have a cream tea with a friend. The board outside advertised cream teas, so we went in. Lovely staff. The cream tea not so good. Cream tasted as though it was from a squirty can and the tea tasted funny. I can't be certain that it was the cream tea, but I was very sick in the evening and felt quite ill. Can't recommend.

We love the Rising Sun, it is set in a lovely area called Lacock, Wiltshire. It has stunning views from the garden and has a large grassed area with tables also an other area with outside seating. Food is delicious and freshly cooked and also homemade desserts. Full bar with local ales. Good car park. We can't rate highly enough!

We love this place. The view is spectacular and on a warm evening there is plenty of space outside to wind down and watch the world go buy with a glass or 2 of Sangiovese. Or in the winter sit by the warm log fire.
I have to say the Fowey Mussels are just amazing (my favourite). I've never had Samphire before and it works perfectly with the rather large Cornish Mussels. They're so popular that they occasionally run out. But that's not a problem because there are other delights on the menu too. I do know the kitchen is very small but I can also say the food is all home made fresh on the day and tastes superb.
The Rising sun has such a character and a warmth to it, you feel so relaxed. There is no pressure. Simon and Nichola are wonderful hosts and the staff are efficient and polite.
I don't know what all the negative reviews are about at all. We love this place... Did I mention the Mussels.
