Welcome to The Rising Sun at Lacock

Nestled in the beautiful English village of Lacock, is this quintessential beautiful English pub

The Rising Sun really is that beautiful British pub that provides fantastic hospitality from the moment you pull into the car park.

As you leave your car you will enjoy expansive views across the Avon Plains, a view that can be enjoyed from our conservatory dining room and the large garden with decked area as well. You can even do a spot of work whilst enjoying the views as we have oodles of free Wi-Fi.

Step into The Rising Sun and you will be reminded of what makes a pub so great. A number of real ales on tap, including many from Wiltshire’s  Moles Brewery, a range of world lagers and a wine list to satisfy every palate and every pocket!

This is as beautiful a pub in the summer months as you sit outside and enjoy the view as it is on a cold wintery day when the fire is as welcoming as the staff and rest of the customers are. Join us for a big warming red wine or a pint of well kept real ale on the way home or for a lunch time bite or lazy Sunday roast – whatever excuse you need – we just recommend you use it!

Excellent Food

The Rising Sun’s reputation for serving excellent food has been earned after years of serving some of the best food in the area. Using locally sourced produce our chefs produce first class dishes that will please even the most foodie of foodies!

Great Beer

Our three ales are from Melksham’s very own Moles Brewery! Moles Best, Tap, Gold or Landlord supported by one of their latest seasonal releases ensures that if you want a well kept real ale (craft beer!) that you’ll be happy at our excellent selection.

Warm welcome

Simon, Nicola and the team are on hand to make your visit to The Rising Sun as enjoyable as can be and whilst they say a smile costs nothing Kerry is very happy to keep smiling but he would quite like you to have a drink or bite to eat whilst you are there!

Coming Events & Specials

Do you remember the day when pub entertainment involved a pack of cards behind the bar? We do! You will be very pleased to know at Lacock’s Rising Sun pub it has moved on a fair bit with a selection of activities to keep you coming back time and time again!

What our customers think

  • We turned up to this picturesque pub quite late in the afternoon. They were busy and the sun was shining so we didn't hold out much hope of getting some lunch. How wrong we were. The landlord couldn't have been more welcoming and the food was delicious. A full traditional Sunday Lunch. Gorgeous

  • Welcoming banter and advice about various dishes on special menu. We chatted with the lady chef and her husband who explained where they sourced the wild boar burgers, fresh mussels and baby squid we chose! He knew his ales and ciders which helped us make our decision! Thoroughly enjoyed the whole dining experience!

  • We used to visit this pub for the view now it's excellent food, service then the view! The mussels were the best I have ever tasted! Both meals were spot on and very reasonably priced.
