Probably one of the best Sunday lunches I have ever had. Food was delicious, my only qualm would be that there wasn't enough of it- particularly the vegetables, but maybe we were just enjoying them too much! Will definitely return.

Dined here a few times and although the menu is small the food is excellent as it is cooked fresh. The presentation is much better than the usual pub fare.

We walked into the pub and received the warmest of welcomes from the pub host Giles Wareham. The pub was beginning to fill up as we entered and Giles introduced us to the other regular pub guests. The food was delicious and Louise and her son Pierre, the chef cook, really do go out of their way to produce a... More

I rarely order a traditional Sunday roast when eating at a pub as I usually find them disappointing, but Sunday lunch at the Rising Sun is superb and we all agreed that it was the best we have ever tasted. The wide variety of vegetables served with a generous portion of beef were beautifully cooked and flavoursome. Excellent beer and... More

Been to this lovely pub three times to eat,never yet been disappointed. The food is really first rate. The welcome is friendly, even the lovely black scotty dog (Angus) remembers who you are and wags his tail on arrival. The menu is always eclectic and that great as my hubby prefers ham egg and chips to my lamb koftas. Its... More

Sadly we had our last Sunday Lunch this week at The Rising Sun, it was excellent, definitely the best roast lunch I have ever had, always consistent, the gravy was superb, sorry to be leaving. Angus as usual greeted us with a wag of his tail, great atmosphere and wonderful staff.

I have just come back from having a lunch with my family at the Rising Sun. I have to say this was the best roast dinner I have ever had in a pub. Everything about it was excellent, not a frozen vegetable in sight! Top quality and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be returning

It starts with the friendly welcome into a pub with such a warm atmosphere. The pub dog, a Scottie, runs up to say hello and then disappears at the rustle of a crisp packet (but everyone's very good and they don't give in to the wholly insincere 'I'm starving' look he gives you). I don't normally go for vegetarian dishes... More

I have eaten twice at the Rising Sun and been very happy with everything on both occasions. The Landlord and his Wife provide a very friendly atmosphere which is supported by the great Bar Staff. When you have a Sunday Lunch here, the vegetables lift the meal from very good to great. There are a wide variety of well cooked... More

The pub should be renamed as above forthwith. Simply the best service and the best food in the area. The most delicious burger(venison),the most delicious roast beef with all the trimmings,the most delicious scollops with chorizo… Can't wait to try the rest. And by far the most welcoming and entertaining hosts in Wiltshire. 50 stars all round!
