The Rising Sun
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The village of Lacock is the perfect place to get lost in. From its array of quaint gift shops and emporiums, to the fact that it has been the setting for some major Hollywood productions, this is a place that deserves an exceptional public house to serve as its crowning glory. Thankfully, this comes in the form of The Rising Sun, a pub that sits delicately atop Bowden Hill, overlooking the village and some beautiful surrounding countryside. We visited The Rising Sun on a weekday evening, and upon arrival were greeted by a roaring fire and some friendly staff. Feeling hungry, I indulged in a starter of chicken liver paté and followed this with the pan-fried chicken breast, which arrived stuffed with Brie and wrapped in tasty smoked bacon. My associate enjoyed her Greek salad starter and had nothing but praise for her main course - Moroccan lamb burger served with a generous helping of chips and a side salad. I was also impressed by the house ales that were on offer, and I can highly recommend my pint of Moles Best. Once we had finished our delicious meals we sat back by the fire, soaked up the ambience, and took in the unique surroundings of this delightful country pub.
