Stopped in for an evening meal and was greeted warmly. Friendly locals pub but with plenty of tourists. Food was fine - it's unpretentious pub grub. Nothing wrong with that! Good beer too

Popped in here for a Sunday lunch before looking at reviews on Tripadvisor. I'm glad we did as we may not have if I read some of the earlier reviews. OK, the decor is a little threadbare and ancient, but that's great, I'm fed up with paying for modern renovations when the welcome, service, food etc. are poor. Here we... More

My husband and I had just arrived in portmellon for a weekend break, whilst walking up the hill to our accommodation, my husband fell badly just outside this pub. Immediately, we were helped into the bar by patrons where the publicans were completely amazing, organising an ambulance, wrapping my husband, who had gone into shock, up in a duvet and... More

My husband and I were on our way to Mevagissey on a day trip out from our camp site on the lovely Roseland Peninsular, travelling along the country lanes and coast - the pretty way. We rounded a bend and in front of us was the attractive Portmellon Cove and The Rising Sun Pub. We both had the same sense... More

Sunday lunchtime, staff nice and friendly but the only available option of Sunday Roast was slightly disappointing, not much in the way of meat, and not exactly the feeling of satisfaction after licking the plate clean, for the price it would have been good to receive a little more generosity in the portions and a bit more effort from the...

This pub is located in the most amazing cove, and when the easterlies are blowing there is great entertainment when sitting outside watching people and cars being covered by the huge wages, though many stand there to keep themselves cool. The accommodation is very comfortable (the beds are amazing) and has all that you need. The food is excellent value... More

Recently ate here whilst on holiday. Lovely location, stunning views. Food was good value for money, staff were polite. Only downside were the chips. Would eat here again. Thank you

We were stopping at Port Mellon so tried the pub a couple of times despite the poor reviews, and we were pleasantly surprised. The views and location next to the beach are wonderful, and we got window seats on both visits. It is an old fashioned local with slate flooring and wooden beams. The food was served quickly and was... More
