We visited the pub on two evenings for a large family meal during our stay at St Mawes. On both occasions we found the meals and service good for the price and standard of hostelry. Good local pub beer is available.

We came for a drink and light lunch. Basic pub with some local beers, standard pub menu with seafood. The decor could do with refreshing but if you want a pint and a bite this is perfectly fine. Don't think I would come for a dinner or celebration meal.

We ate in the Rising Sun on Tuesday night and enjoyed the gammon,egg & chips - good sized portions and good value. Service was good and cheerful. The dessert menu was limited and slightly out of step with the range of starters and main courses on the menu. We enjoyed our meal and booked for the following night for the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed eating fish, chips and mushy peas sitting outside watching all the comings and goings of the town and harbour. A good local pub, serving a menu of typical pub grub, and friendly staff.

Nice setting- lovely sitting outside in the sun, but that's it really. Lunch was mediocrity personified-a microwaved baked potato stuffed with very inferior baked beans and a tiny sprinkling of cheese. Cost was £7.95 which was quite extortionate. I ordered a still mineral water and was given a sparkling. There was an indifference in the staffs' manner which was quite... More

Had a really good lunch here. St Mawes is a lovely old harbour town, and expensive. The Rising Sun offers good food, served all day with an extensive choice of main meals and snacks. Not cheap but St. Mawes isn't cheap. We wanted a light snack as we were walking from our campsite near St Just in Roseland. We chose... More

Unfriendly and unprofessional staff. Rude and arrogant manager (or owner?) who mistreated his clients. Overly oily food - the worst fish and chips we've had so far. Overall unpleasant experience. Definitely not recommended!

Thank you for you review, im sorry you felt your experience was a bad one, our fish and chips are very popular, and we take pride in all our food but they are obviously not to your liking. More
