Review on Rising Sun

A quick stroll from the harbour in the prosperous holiday village of St Mawes, The Rising Sun is perfectly placed if you want to take in the views across the water to the Roseland Peninsula.

Formal meals are served in the colonial-style restaurant, which extends out to a glassed-in terrace where you can watch the maritime goings on – whatever the season. Ann Long has built up a sound reputation over the years, thanks to her dedication and unaffected cooking.

Meals begin with 'Mrs Long's warm bread' and olives before sweet pepper and tomato soup with basil oil or hot-smoked kedgeree cake with a quail's egg hidden in the centre. To follow, there might be grilled sea bass fillets with sesame dressing, monkfish wrapped in Parma ham with redcurrants or coriander-spiced duck breast on caramelised onions with red wine sauce. To finish, why not try the unusual Cornish cheese terrine?

The up-market, well-cared-for bar is an ever-popular haunt of holidaymakers, locals and sailing types. Here you can enjoy pints of Cornish ale, fine wines from an extensive well-rounded list and robust pub food along the lines of potted crab with toast, individual game pudding and fishcakes followed by raspberry oatmeal meringue.
