We had a lovely meal here a couple of nights ago. Food quality excellent (we had the catch of the day), a charming waitress, and the restaurant is nicely decorated. Will definitely return. Highly recommended.

Attractive old place successfully mixing "the local" pub with gastro-pub qualities. Old charm not sacrificed to retaurantism. Leather armchairs are good to sink into when sinking pints. Parking OK, menu excellent, service also excellent. Lots of varied seating for larger groups or intimate pairs dining....More

Hi, Carole. What would you like to know about this restaurant? Karen, are you sure you visited The Rising Sun in Truro? The pub is definitely not near the beach! It's in the middle of Truro city. Please correct your review if it was another Rising Sun pub you visited. I wouldn't like future visitors to be disappointed because there isn't a sea view!
