We enjoyed a fantastic meal at the Rising Sun while on holiday nearby. We both had steaks which were absolutely perfectly cooked. The accompaniments were also delicious, and there was a good selection of ales and ciders. The chocolate brownie was one of the best I have had for a long time and my husband had an enormous portion of... More

Fishcakes were old rubbery and deep fried. Lasagna also unpleasant and microwaved. Expected a little more for an £8 meal. Really disappointed as other reviews raved about the food. Perhaps picked the wrong items...

Lovely meal served by friendly staff. Excellent end to our day after travelling through some very narrow lanes which our sat nav was determined to count as Major roads.

Down a narrow Cornish Lane youll find this 17th century pub, bands, musicians, phenomenal singers and a clientele thats happy to dance where there is no space for dancing. Cant say I have experienced anything quite like it before. This was a Friday night too so would love to see what a Saturday is like.

Had a meal today in the pub. Food was really good. However, had to eat this food against a back drop of staff talking about slimfast shakes and the fact that cherries made one member of staff projectile vomit. Then another member of staff who was going on holiday stating what made her feel sick. I ve never had a... More

I picked my partner up from the train station in Gunnislake and we strolled down the hill in the beautiful countryside, to a warm welcome. the Young women on duty were helpful and courteous (when not dowsing themselves in vodka!) and attentive to the needs of the customers. The food was freshly cooked and well prepared. The beer was perfect... More

Friendly staff in a clean comfortable setting. Outside Garden and parking. Great Open Mic nights with an abundance of Cornish Talent. We were taken back by the level of singing in particular a young couple called the Two Jay's. We had food at the pub and the food was good and the prices were well priced. would definitely visit again.
