I very rarely get time to write reviews, but was so taken by the quality and friendliness of the hospitality at the Rising Sun that I really wanted to say thank you. We found the pub at very short notice for a large family gathering - and despite this, every accommodation was made for us. We were all really impressed... More

Our second visit for Sunday lunch and once again we were not disappointed. Beautifully cooked, well presented and reasonably priced food in a cozy country pub setting; this is the ideal formula for a relaxed Sunday lunch. Giles and Louise are the congenial hosts. Trip Advisor lists the venue as Chippenham when it is in fact in Christian Malford.

This was a special birthday lunch with a friend and my mother. Our food was beautifully presented and well cooked. My scallops served with Chorizo, tomatoes and leeks were perfectly cooked by Nick. The Tarte Tatin was light and melted in the mouth and went well with the fudge sauce and caramel ice cream. My friend and my mother went... More

What a delight to come across a pub that is the genuine article. A good range of traditional beers, impeccably kept and presented, and a thoughtful menu, all wrapped up in an unselfconscious country inn ambiance. We had a warm welcome on a quiet November Friday lunchtime. I chose the spicy pumpkin soup with warmed baguette, followed by fish and... More

Colleagues and I regularly visit The Rising Sun for lunch and are never disappointed. The food really raises the bar in comparison to the standard pub fare on offer in the locality. Quality, presentation and flavour are always exceptional. The decor is unassuming and classically country pub. Teamed with a lovely landlord and lady (and pub dog!) there is little,... More

We only occasionally visit the Rising Sun, but always with a frisson of warm anticipation. There is always a a warm welcome, especially from Giles, with his quirky sense of humour, who makes us, as with all his customers, feel welcome. On our last visit we had a light lunch, which as other reporters have said, is not the cheapest... More

No kids in tow, so went for a evening meal for 2. Since our last visit the choice on the menu has become more varied, but the favourites remain. Went for the pheasant followed by the lamb shank - best pheasant I have had and the lamb was cooked perfectly. What I really like with the food is that every... More

Fish and chips better than i've ever tasted and delicious scallops with chorizo to start. Beautifully presented. Very good choice of beers and wines. Definitely will be back again.
