A Reason To Visit England

Together with my daughter and her boyfriend we went on spec and had a great evening. Informal, friendly and with a great ambience. The food was very good. I enjoyed my scallops (although one or two extra would have been good) and we all had steaks that were cooked to meet our tastes. The staff... read more

We happened across this place by pure accident (sat nav issues)..... and im glad we did. I have a fond childhood memory of a ploughmans lunch in a country pub with my grandparents.... and ever since then i have been trying to find a pub that does one as good. I have to say... this place comes very very close....... More

We stopped here for lunch while driving along the M4 as it is only a couple of miles from the Chippenham junction and were thrilled we had as the food was outstanding! Home made crisps, home made Scotch egg, fabulous Rogan Josh curry and then delicious home made chocolates and shortbread biscuits with the cafetière of coffee afterwards. My husband... More

Myself and my partner went here today for our Easter roast. Fantastic food and a great atmosphere. The landlord is a great character and Angus is very cute! All freshly cooked food, the Veg were possibly the best I have ever had. I am very happy to be able to call this my local and will be frequenting the pub... More

We revisited The Rising Sun after many previous haphazard visits to find a real buzz about the place. Under new ownership, and clearly a popular spot for locals to pop into for a drink at the bar, The Rising Sun is now offering a great menu, excellent service and good food. Lovely scallops, pink duck and chocolate mousse were all... More

An absolute gem. Roast beef cooked to perfection (we were asked how we wanted it cooked which doesn't happen often enough), massive yorkshire puddings, a myriad selection of perfectly cooked veg and not a frozen roast potato in sight. A great choice of delicious desserts and also a good choice of beers. Angus the very friendly pub dog made the... More

Perfectly cooked roast beef (as per your choice) crisp roast potatoes, parsnips and a lovely selection of fresh vegetables (carrots, leaks, red cabbage and cauliflower cheese). A small Yorkshire (tasty, but I prefer mine a little more lightly done) and the gravy came in a separate jug which was a nice touch (just enough gravy - perhaps a little more... More

What a pleasant surprise to find this gem of a place & must be the best food around Chippenham. It's a drinkers pub & even so I was shocked to be offered a choice of three ciders, Stowfords, Thatchers Gold & Black Rat rather than the usual choice of one. Black Rat was an obvious selection as I've never had... More
