Booked this for a 6 night stay as a base to your around. The setting is beautiful, the pub not so. Our room was very basic, very dirty, see pics. Had to ask for toilet roll, had to ask for thumping music to stop, went on till 3am the first night and past midnight on second. Checked out after 2... More

This accommodation really consists of rooms above a pub, but you wouldn't really know it: there is a separate entrance to the 6 rooms, so you don't have to walk through the bar to get to the rooms. The rooms themselves are reasonably sized, and they are thoughtfully furnished and fitted out: we had plenty of space in drawers and... More

We stayed in Portmellon for two weeks and ate as a family here three times as it's great for traditional pub food and St Austell beer. Beats the throng of Meva. Overlooks the port/beach but watch out for high tides!

As we were staying locally we decided to try the Rising Sun for an evening meal, and weren't disappointed. The staff were friendly and welcoming, though the building is old and the facilities basic. The interesting local history of boatbuilding is illustrated by pictures and photographs around the walls, and Portmellon Cove is a really nice spot to explore. The... More

Read about this place in Lonely Planet England guidebook. On arriving we almost drove away as it didn't look inviting however decided to give it a try for lunch. Food and nonalcoholic drinks for four costing less than £35. All served up promptly, piping hot, plentiful and most importantly well cooked and tasty. Parking whilst adjacent doesn't belong to the...

If you want to stay in an authentic and genuinely old English Inn, then the Rising Sun is ideal for you. The bar area is the real deal, cobbled floor and wood paneling. Exactly what you would expect from a building circa 1630! Loved by locals, so that's a good sign. The accommodation is fine. The room overlooked the harbour... More

After walking for 20 mins from Mevagissey it was lovely to stumble upon this Inn. A well stocked bar and food served from 12-2 6-8pm. Very pleasant pub with its staff and locals I enjoyed visiting, will have to try the food next time.

Popped in for lunch. Our party of 7 (including kids and dog) were made to feel very welcome. Good choice of local ales and food was nice. Cosy pub with amazing views. We walked from Gorran Haven, had lunch, then back through the valley via Gorran Churchtown. Great circular walk.

Booked a room and asked to change for a sea view....no problem. Arrived and were met with a warm welcome and asked if we needed assistance with our cases. Comfortable bed and a sea view. Had a drink on Saturday evening, again a warm welcome and good service. Always nice when the bar-staff remember your previous order. Stayed for dinner... More
