A seaside pub with lovely outlook from our room of the tiny cove. Excellent for walking the coastal track in either direction. Not luxury but good for the price. Meals OK. Staff youthful but helpful. Tricky road access for those with cars and not used to Cornwall!

We both had sausage and mash which was more than acceptable as pub food and we stayed for a pub quiz which was good fun. The staff were very friendly and it is set in a very quiet location and only a short, albeit precipitous, walk from Mevagissey.

Friendly welcome & friendly staff. Molly the house dog is also welcoming, being elderly & gentle! We chose this pub for 2 nights as it is dog friendly, ask Sharon when booking. We ate in the bar; husband had large fish & chips & I had a mushroom curry with poppadoms. But the best was the ice cream sundaes!! Fascinating... More

Friendly local pub nothing more. We only saw one member of staff who was very friendly, pleasant, and helpful. Basic bar food available which was reasonably priced but nothing special. Lovely location on a sunny day for a drink outside. Main negative was there was a distinct doggie oudor which is fine if you are a dog lover.

Lovely old pub with views across the bay. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was okay but not a lot of choice. My steak was okay and cooked well but seem to go cold quick. Nice place to eat outside on a sunny day watching the tide come in.

We have just returned from our 3 night stay at the rising sun inn. Before we arrived we were a little anxious as we had read a few of the previous reviews. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome & were helped by the landlady who showed us to our room and helped with our bags. First... More

We only came here a couple of drinks after a long day walking. The staff and locals were very welcoming to us and our dog (who even got a little treat) The pub is in a beautiful setting and makes a nice alternative to the more commercial places in Mevagissey (its only a short walk between the two)
