This is a GREAT friendly pub, now with the owner at the helm it has still got the atmosphere from all the music lovers and locals, we were all disappointed when we were told buy tenants for 3 yrs, Venny and Dave that the owner was not going to carry on with live music, that turn out to be incorrect,...

Its a great shame to read some recent unkind reviews about the new situation at the Rising Sun, its true to say they have stopped doing food and that the previous tenants who were in situe for three years have left. It is now back to being run by the very friendly landlord Dave, who has owned the pub for... More

Shame. For a couple of years this pub did quite good food. Not now though. Reverted back to what is was a few years ago - a pub with no atmosphere and no food.

We stopped by the Rising Sun Inn whilst on route to Penzance for Christmas. The pub dates from the early modern period, and it was lovely to see that so many of the traditional features have been preserved. The selection of beer was fairly broad, and included ales such as Tribute, Otter, Legend and Jail Ale (all priced between £2.80-£3.30).... More

Just 100% A 1 but I hear that the owner of the pub is kicking out the tenant that has dragged up this pup to A1 status in Jan 2014, I suspect it will now go down hill back to the way it was awfull!!!!!!! In 2104 Some owner do not know when they ahve a great tenant Land Lord.

Occassionly we go to the rising sun for a meal and were quite devasted to hear that Vinny and dave were leaving at the end of january. The food has always been first class and the atmosphere extremely friendly it is so sad, good luck to you both in your next venture where ever it may be.

Yet again a great evening with great ale, hospitality and jolly good fooooooood. Such a shame the current landlord is having to leave AT END OF JANUARY 2014. Dont think any grub will be on offer after january, so best to phone beforehand to check if you want to eat. I suspect the nice music bands will dissapear also. I... More

Visited this recently. My husband had the mixed grill which in his opinion is the best he has ever had (and he has had a lot). Very good portion sizes and indeed all homecooked, There was a band on the night we was there and they do have regular live music. Its very cosy and the owners was so nice.... More

We've been here a few times now and upset that we didn't discover it previously, living reasonably close by! The restaurant isn't about fine dining but good, home made, tasty and hearty pub grub. It wins over other pubs in the area as it does a wide selection of dishes properly. So, no "cheat" puff pastry lidded pies but ones... More
