Had heard a lot about this place so thought we would try! It was a lovely surprise to walk in on a windy Friday evening to see two fires burning at each end of the bar. Lovely warm and welcoming. Myself and partner loved the menu and the food was amazing and so was the homemade bread. Sat in the... More

Stopped off here en route to Padstow following a recommendation from a friend. We arrived and I must admit that the place did look a bit deserted from the outside...however we went in and what a little treasure we found!! Firstly the food was absolutely fantastic, great local produce cooked to a higher standard, I really can't rate the food... More

On our journeys we stopped at the rising sun. We arrived and thought it was closed but saw lights on in the inn. Inside we went and the open ceiling beams and roaring log fire looked so homely and warming. We sat and ordered food and drinks which arrived in good time. I had the mussels with cream which were...

Myself and my wife ate here twice on the 10th and 11th of Feb, and I can honestly say that considering the pub is in the middle of nowhere, the quality of the food was amazing. I think we all like to think we are closet food critics on the quiet, but this place has now become a benchmark for... More

Very good steak and kidney pudding, new potatoes and market vegetables. Not quite as good guinea fowl - gravy was over-seasoned. Good puddings, good beer, OK wine. We have tried a few pubs off the A30 on our way to South-West Cornwall and this is the best food we have found so far.

The Rising Sun is an 18th century traditional moorland inn, offering a fine selection of local and guest real ales, wines and spirits, contemporary bar and restaurant food in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Our food is freshly prepared and cooked in our kitchen and where possible we source our ingredients with sustainability, seasonality and localism at the top of our agenda.
We are situated just off the A30 about 1 mile through the village of Altarnun in the hamlet of Treween.
We serve food both lunch and dinner 7 days a week.
We also have a great little campsite with shower facilities and electric hook-ups. Please call for availability.
