We were very surprised of the hotels location directly at the harbour. This is not obvious from the web based info. Superb restaurant serving excellent dinners and breakfasts. The room was very nicely decorated in old style. The bed was a bit too narrow, so in order to have better sleep we would recommend room with two beds.

the room was great and the meal was so good. we only stayed one night but the welcome was outstanding. The breakfast was typical British, not good for the waist line but really well cooked. It is located in the middle of St Mawes and has a great outlook. If you are in the area you could not go wrong...

Set just across the road from Dr Mawes Harbour, the hotel has a small restaurant attached and is pet Friendly. Serving local seafood and lots of other dishes, the staff are efficient and super friendly to adults, children and pets alike. A must for a cream tea or a lovely relaxed lunch.

Warm greeting by friendly and attentive staff. Excellent menu and lovely restaurant area. Full bar. This establishment is a proper "inn" and serves fantastic food in large portions at fantastic prices. We were really impressed with the entire experience and thoroughly recommend The Rising Star to other travellers.

First time in The Rising Sun and pleasantly surprised. Quite a few locals but also catering for day trippers. However we were neither but in search a a quick lunch. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Lunch was good - scampi and ham egg and chips. All done well with a very quick service

We visited the pub on two evenings for a large family meal during our stay at St Mawes. On both occasions we found the meals and service good for the price and standard of hostelry. Good local pub beer is available.

We came for a drink and light lunch. Basic pub with some local beers, standard pub menu with seafood. The decor could do with refreshing but if you want a pint and a bite this is perfectly fine. Don't think I would come for a dinner or celebration meal.

Thank Stephen M
