The rising sun is a typical old Inn. The room we had was small but nicely decorated and clean. The position right on the front made sitting outside for a drink a very pleasant, relaxing experience. The food was typical pub food, service was friendly. Mevagissey was a reasonable walk away over the hill, this is a nice little old... More

As this is the only place to eat in Portmellon it is great that the food, beer, and service is so good. This lovely unspoilt pub is just across a narrow road from the sea. In fact, in blowy weather, the waves splash over the road at high tide. The Rising Sun reminds me of the pub of the Cornwall... More

Just spent a long weekend at this pub. I loved it! Cant wait to go back again. Superb location. Damn hilly though. Legs still ache. If you love cornwall visit this pub. True cornish hospitality. Brilliant.

We stopped here for lunch on the way into Mevagissey. On first appearances you might think, keep going on to Mevagissey! Having no car park and having to pay for the one you do park in is a bit rich, especially, although it was a blustery day and whilst a nice beach, there was no one on it and the... More

This Hotel(pub), is located right on the edge of a lovely bay. It's located within 12 meters from the sea. With the sun shining it was amazing. We were greeted by a friendly landlady, and we were happy with our rooms. Both had sea views. At breakfast the next morning, we had to ask for the milk to be changed... More

Nice beach at low tide, which is hidden... More

We stayed in Portmellon for a week October 2013 and because of it's proximity to where we were, we decided to go to the Rising Sun for a Sunday lunch. When we arrived, the place was quiet, but we got a really warm and kind welcome from the landlady. She even went to the trouble of bringing biscuits for our... More
