Fantastic, proper pub. If you find yourself in Gunnislake and need cheering up, if for instance it has been raining for 6 days and you are camping, ir you are camping and the family are driving you round the twist, worry no more. Escape to the Rising Sun where fine ales and ciders are served with lively banter from the... More

Wednesday night is Burger Night at the Rising Sun and brilliant it is too. Lots of choice of "add-ons" to make your burger even scrummier and at minimal prices too. The choice is yours. Hand cut, triple cooked chips are awesome, likewise the onion rings. A great burger and drinks at very modest prices, a real winner.

Decidedly average grub, steak and ale pie was incredibly rich, perhaps been revitalised a few times , who knows, service a bit slow due to an influx of customers, . Still not up to scratch, don't know why, beer a bit pricy at £ 3.40 a pint? Not good for a back street pub. Ice cream options seemed a bit... More
