Pub of the week: the Rising Sun

We’re in Truro for this week’s recommendation – which has a well earned reputation for food and a proper pint of beer.

A warm and comfortable spot for watching the world pass by, this Cornish pub invites you to savour a drop of our new fundraising beer, Handlebar – and a well sourced variety of local ales – or indeed a tipple from the newly opened gin bar.

The mussels are a particular favourite with customers; the seasonally changing menu features a variety of freshly caught fruits from the sea, alongside an inspired line-up of West Country ingredients.

If you’re in Cornwall this weekend, we’d advise following the example of the Rising Sun’s dog Hamish, and settling by the fireplace. Where better for a pint of Box Steam, or perhaps a mulled cider punch?

Phew, where has the time gone? We’ve been brewing for almost 15 years.

We’ll never produce factory style beer. Our creative brewers use hop flavours to their full, forever artful in the quite wondrous production of naturally flavoursome beer.

Our roots are firmly in the West Country, where we continue to be inspired by the engineering triumphs of the late great Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
