The Rising Sun Inn, St Mawes

The Rising Sun Inn, St Mawes

Combining modern and traditional styles, this Cornish eatery offers a variety of locally sourced, seasonal favourites to cater for any craving. Whether you’re looking for a local fish dish fresh from the St Mawes harbour or a hearty Sunday carvery, the Rising Sun Inn offers an indulgent twist on wholesome home-cooking. A real home from home! 

This cosy seaside inn is open for breakfast from 8.30am, so why not start your day the right way? The breakfast menu offers the classic full English, alongside a light continental or fresh fish selection. Whatever your go-to brekky, grab yourself an espresso and mull over your plans for the day, all with breath-taking sea views from the conservatory overlooking St Mawes harbour.

After a glorious day hiking the Cornish coastline or exploring St Mawes, why not treat yourself to the traditional local delicacy; a Cornish Cream Tea is the perfect accompaniment to your much-earned cuppa! Sit outside on the terrace and tuck into your buttery scones dolloped with cream and jam, enjoying the backdrop of dreamy ocean views.

When the temperatures start to drop in winter, relish those gloomy afternoons by cosying up indoors next to the log burner, watching grey clouds brood on the inky horizon. For a real winter warmer that’s good for the soul, don’t miss out on the Rising Sun Inn’s traditional carvery either, served Sundays and Wednesdays. Accompanied by a selection of seasonal vegetables and heavenly roasties, you certainly won’t be disappointed!


Tempted? Whether you’re popping by for a morning coffee stop, afternoon cake date or a family dinner, the Rising Sun Inn is ideally situated for a sumptuous meal and stunning seaside views. Open daily from 8.30am to 10pm, book yourself a table to avoid disappoint (especially if you want to secure yourself a window seat!).
