Brilliant Burgers

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... read more

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

I'm sorry to hear you had a bad experience, does this mean you won't be returning with the rest of your party who have booked again. Our pie is not frozen, and yes it is rich as its slow cooked in our own beef and ale gravy. Yes kellys do some of there ice cream in individual tubs, as do... More

The chilli was spot on and just the right amount of heat and the pate was equally delicious...especially loved the chutney. All in all I would thoroughly recommend the Rising Sun for its good and most importantly, unpretentious menu. So many pubs try to reinvent themselves as poncy restaurants....hopefully this one will remember what it is and continue to serve... More

We stayed elsewhere. However, we ate at the Rising Sun. The meal we had was very nice. I had a (very 70s) turkey vindaloo. It came with a poppadom, raisins and desiccated coconut. Very tasty. I had a steamed sponge pudding with clotted cream, which was also nice. The evening we were there, it was an open mic night, which... More

Great small village pub. Friendly. Unfortunately doesn't do food. Garden would be lovely to sit out in when the weather is good.

Thank you for your comments, there must have been some miss understanding with food, as we serve food all day 12.00-21.00 apart from Sunday evening's. Please pop back soon for some of our homemade food. Craig Howe More

We hadn't visited the Rising Sun for a few years and got a pleasant surprise. We stopped here for lunch last week and were impressed by the changes made by the new owners. The restaurant has been refurbed as has the bar, the food was very good with a good choice. We will be returning.

I reviewed the Rising Sun Inn shortly after it's new owners took over, in the middle of last year. At the time, I stumbled upon a mess. There were hardly any beers on tap, the food was poor, frozen produce, and the staff weren't welcoming at all. I returned, hoping for better, in March and was pleasantly surprised. The new... More

Thank you for popping in again, I do believe there is some confusion, we have never sold San Miguel...! We sell kronenbourg and fosters on draught and a variety of bottle lagers, We have always had a good selection of Ales and Ciders and yes we have had a staff change over, as we inherited some when buying the pub....

Visited the restaurant on 3rd April 2015 for a special birthday celebration and was not disappointed. We stayed in Calstock and a local said that he did not recommend the restaurant - I strongly disagree! The staff were so friendly and the menu was really varied and reasonable. The food was absolutely fantastic, great presentation and the cost very reasonable.... More
