You might be put off by it's location. It's one of the first restaurants as you enter St Mawes and you think there will be better further on. But we circled back. We found it friendly, comfy and pub food hit the spot. There are posher places if that's what you've decided on.

We went to The Rising Sun for lunch and we were blown away by the exceptional food. It was better than most restaurant meals we've had anywhere in the world. As well as being one of the best lunches, the food was reasonably priced, the service perfect and the setting beautiful. I would return to St Mawes just to eat at The Rising Sun again,

Four of us decided after visiting the church in St Just we needed lunch so where better than St Mawes only a couple of miles away. so after a failed attempt in another restaurant we finished up at the Rising Sun. Fabulous position right in the heart of the village . luckily our timing was brilliant although all seats and tables full outside inside was empty. At this point I must stress that in our party of 4 we have one vegetarian and one vegan which was the reason why we had a failed attempt at another restaurant. So the menu at The Rising Sun is not brilliant but with a small diversion we managed to agree on the food. Basically our vegan friend had a brie and salad sandwich and took the cheese off whilst our vegetarian friend had the same but left the cheese on. We had a burger and chips and a prawn cocktail. The burger was fine as was the chips and the resultant sarnies with or without cheese also ok. The prawn cocktail was incredible and consisted of a glass with chopped lettuce and cucumber topped with the an enormous amount of prawns. all very tasty and would have been excellent if there was any Marie rose sauce on it. the drinks being a pub were fine and the staff all very pleasent. One final comment this is St Mawes and for some reason all the business owners in the place seem to think that their products are worth considerably more because of the fact they are in St Mawes. Sadly one day reality will dawn on them. Value for money was poor quality below average and would we go back. Maybe and take a packed lunch

Our room was fresh and welcoming . Bathroom could do with some up dating , rather shabby .
Some meals were excellent but others over deep fried and tasteless .
Breakfast in the mornings was very hit and miss , the first days greasy full English looked as if everything had just been dumped on the plates. The final days cooked breakfast was completely different and very good.
I don’t think we got a smile from one member of waiting staff during the whole of our stay , some looked as if they were hung over from the night before .
The fire alarm went off twice very early in the morning so we all started to vacate our rooms each time , only to be told it was a false alarm . The waiter at breakfast did apologise . For a drink and a meal we would visit again but not sure if I’d stay again .

Room tip: Rooms are quieter at the back of the hotel . Front rooms overlook very noisy area with late drinking

We visited the Rising Sun for afternoon cream tea and I must say the scones were the worst I have ever eaten and out of two scones on each plate the most eaten was a half a scone and we had four cream teas. We complained to the waiter on three accessions and the only response was I am sorry.
The prawn cocktail in the evening cost £7.50 for a handful of frozen tasteless prawns never again.
