Travelled by ferry from Falmouth and were looking forward to a nice lunch. The menu was quite expensive and our meals were overall disappointing. The felafel burger was so dry it was not edible, the accompanying salsa was submerged in vinegar, the scampi was not well cooked and the side salad could have been fresher ( brown lettuce edges) Staff were busy and no one came to check we were happy with our meal.... We will not eat here again. A shame to serve such poor food in a pub with a great view.

Having just been ignored at the victory Inn we walked into the Rising Sun & were served drinks instantly, found a table overlooking the bay & ordered their homemade burgers. Told 20 minute wait as cooked to order, no problem with that as they were indeed very good & homemade. Friendly service as well as good beer.

This was good quality pub food with very generous portions. The service was quick and the staff polite and courteous. The prices for food and drink were comparable to other places in St Mawes and although not cheap did represent value for money.

Simple pub grub, nothing special although the puds were really good. I had gammon and chips, my husband had the steak. The chips seemed like they'd been re-heated. One of the waitresses was lovely the other just 'dumped' the food on the table and walked away, not bothering to tell us we had to get our own cutlery, sauces etc.
