Looked up on the internet to find a pub in the area and decided on The Rising Sun for a quick meal and was not disappointed. Set the satnav. which at first thought was taking me the wrong way down a narrow lane but then came across the pub. The choice of food was more than one could expect with... More

We stumbled across this pub and when we walked in we could see other people's dishes and knew we'd be in for a treat. The staff were friendly and went the extra mile to help our young family to enjoy our visit. The food is not gourmet, but it was tasty and satisfying. There was a friendly atmosphere, with some...

Excellent lunch with EVERY effort made to accommodate coeliac gluten-free and allergy needs. Went completely out of their way to check labels etc to ensure I could eat &drink safely. Gluten-free & dairy-free rolls were available so I didn't miss out& they were gorgeous too; thinking of asking where they got them from as they were so scrumptious. Brilliant bar... More

Recently popped in for a lunchtime drink. Only one ther person in the pub. A nice day so we sat outside. Unfortunately it was not a pleasant experience. The "garden" (well what used to be the garden) is so weed infested. It is very badly neglected and unloved. Once upon a time the garden was beautifully tended with fantastic views... More

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.
