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

When we arrived the pub wasn't very busy and our expectations weren't too high. All that changed when the food arrived it was fantastic, blimey I even took some photos it was so well presented. Very good value as well. We will definitely be back. I strongly recommend.

The rising sun is located in gunnislake and is typical of an olde english (cornish) pub, with oak beams and good selection of real ales. We visited in the week, and the pub was crowded and busy, but not noisy. Its good to visit a traditional pub, and see no slot machines and tv screens. What a welcome change. The... More

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 connecting the station and pub, however this may need...

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?
