Gastro Pub
Set on Mitchell Hill, a medieval route from the city of Truro to the East, in a quiet, historical quarter, The Rising Sun is the hub of the local community and a destination for visitors to the county. Surrounded by charming lanes with views to the cathedral, diverse historical buildings, an abundance of trees and greenery.
Seven years ago Katie & Tom Hannon stepped into a very dark and sad shell of a pub. An overwhelming amount of work paled into insignificance against the excitement at what they thought could be created in this out of the way building with a very long and interesting history. A lot of hard labour ensued to create their vision of showcasing the best qualities of a modern pub; seamlessly combining carefully sourced, sophisticated yet familiar food and drink in a welcoming authentic pub environment. Elegant, delicious food alongside fantastic local beers, unusual wines and a great array of craft spirits all wrapped up in a relaxed atmosphere.

    Quality and portion sizes did not represent the high prices! The langoustine starter was very minimal, the sauce was light and tasty but unable to enjoy fully as a spoon was needed. The risotto starter was chalky and far too al dente. The Beef Loin was full of flavour but a very small portion. The Chicken Fricassee was moist and enjoyable to eat. We have eaten there several times previously and enjoyed really good food. We were a bit disappointed as celebrating an anniversary on this visit. We will go back again but maybe leave it for a while.

    We were here on holiday and enjoyed a great meal! The Fish was perfectly prepared - s I loved the bed of veggies. The lamb was amazing as well as the pork! All of us shared the red cabbage and mashed apples with the other vegetables. We will be back and highly recommend this restaurant as a place not to be missed!

    Could not fault the food at all, best Sunday lunch that we’ve had for a very long time and we’ve tried a few. Their approach to service is novel, and works for the location, thorough but never rushed. Will definitely return for more.

    Probably the best Sunday roast I have had. Meat was perfect as was the vegetable selection and cauliflower cheese sauce.

    A wonderful Sunday roast experience. Great food. I would think it’s impossible to leave hungry given the generous portions.

    OMG, we had a Sunday lunch, it was absolutely amazing, we had slow roast lamb, tender juicy and we had a fair slices, the vegetables omg sensational also I had the cauliflower cheese it’s to die for, superb. My husband had the apple & rhubarb crumble/ beautiful custard, first class. Jack served us with our meal, he was so lovely presented with a lovely white shirt & Clothed Apron, really looked the part. Definitely recommend going for their Sunday lunch , you will not regret it.

    Food excellent , staff friendly, helpful and attentive . However the 2 girls were overwhelmed with number of customers. I suggest Staff levels need attention. Also was puzzled by comparison of small starter for £16 to a full meal for same price or less ( and it was risotto , not lobster ……
