I wish I had read more reviews of this place before booking two nights and am writing this review to steer as many people as possible from this lousy over priced dump. On the plus side the location is great, a pleasant walk away from Mevagissey. However, that is where the good news ends. It is shabby, with tired decor,... More

The Rising Sun Inn is beautifully situated overlooking the sea, a pleasant walk from Mevagissey, some of the staff are also pleasant enough, however that is where the good news stops. This is a poorly maintained, shabby, badly run over priced dump. Our room was grubby with tired furnishings. There is no sound proofing and had to kind of wiggle... More

Not sure what was a reasonable expectation for what is a pub with some rooms, however, clean rooms and quiet late at night are fairly basic requirements, which were not met. The wall are paper thin so you will believe other guests are sharing your room and the noise from the bathroom extractor in the next room sounds like a... More

We arrived mid afternoon and was shown to our room. The stairwell was dark and dingy with a dirty rope bannister. Our room overlooked the front of the pub from very narrow small windows. The first thing I noticed was that the room opposite ours had the door ajar. I could see the room had no mattress on it and... More

Lovely no nonsense food, good selection of beer and authentic atmosphere that we couldn't find in mevagissey. Highly recommended - great value, freshly cooked food in relaxed environment overlooking the sea. Watch the boats go out eating super fresh fish and chips and drinking doom bar.

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
