The Rising Sun is a free house, dating from the 19th century, located in the small village of Christian Malford in Wiltshire, just outside Chippenham and 4 miles from Junction 17 of the M4.
On 6th March 2017, The Rising Sun was taken over by a group of local villagers whose sole aim was to keep their much loved village pub ‘open’ for the community. We pride ourselves on our expertly kept real ales, an interesting wine list plus a range of traditional ciders and continental lagers.
Our menus, which comprise quality food at affordable prices, ensure you’ll find something to suit all tastes and ages. We are a truly ‘traditional old-fashioned family-friendly country village pub, where you are always guaranteed a warm welcome.
We offer baby changing facilities (located within the disabled toilet area), a large beer garden with a children’s play area and a boules pitch, and free wifi.
The local countryside is full of public footpaths, so why not use The Rising Sun as a start and finish for some great local walks? Stop for a refreshing drink after your exercise or fully restore your energy and join us for a meal. Well-behaved dogs are most welcome in the bar and beer garden.
Our Christmas menu includes some festive dishes, some old favourites and some of James’ specialities. Read more …

With its rising popularity, we recommend pre-booking to guarantee your table and the time that you would like to eat. However, we will always try to accommodate those who suddenly decide that they want to join us and look forward to welcoming you to The Rising Sun. Pre-booking is however essential for our “special” events.
Please call 01249 721 571 to book your table or leave a message and we will get back to you.
