Visited during a Beer Festival

After a 45-minute trip from Plymouth station along the picturesque river Tamar line the pub is roughly a 10-minute walk from the train station (well-signposted) - beware - the shortest route does involve going down (and back up) a steep hill....though I am also informed there is also a bus route... read more

Five friends together for a birthday meal. Brilliant. Warrens steak and burgers cooked to perfection. Steaks all cooked as ordered! Home made onions rings and meals beautifully presented. What's not to like?

How good to see the Rising Sun back to its former glory. It's warm and welcoming, with professional staff who are both friendly and quick. You cannot put a price on good bar staff who remember your name, your drink and the glass you like to drink it from and manage to serve you within minutes of your arrival and... More

This has been our (walking distance) local since moving to the village over 7 years ago. It has had its ups and downs, but we are so pleased it has been bought by professionals who have maintained the popular fixtures, brought in an infusion of youth and enthusiasm and have a wide range of real ales and excellent, simple pub...

My family and i have been to the Rising Sun now on numerous occasions since the new owners have taken over, i thought the food was fantastic. I had the Riser chicken which is a must have, and my husband had the ultimate burger with sweet potato fries which he said was delicious. All staff seemed very friendly, nothing was... More

This is a great village pub oozing great atmosphere. Owners are very friendly and the welcome is very warm. However - the food is disappointing. Just the usual 'pub food' - frozen everything. Even what's on the "Specials Boards" are not special just more frozen food. (And the steak is very over-priced) Be nice if there was just a couple... More

Great food with an excellent choice. Four of us all had different items off the menu, no one was disappointed and the quality of the fayre was excellent. Will be back for more. The 'Riser' is a 16th c pub in an area of outstanding natural beauty (Tamar Valley) and is full of character and 'olde worlde' charm.
