The Rising Sun

A city dining destination with barrels of bonhomie and country‑pub vibes is something every foodie needs to have in their little black book. The Rising Sun in Truro is a fabulous find for those who want to take in the city’s sights and shops before retiring to a vibrant local for excellent dining

An evening of feasting begins with a cocktail such as a Smoked Negroni at the bar (or a delicious non‑alc alternative) and an opportunity to soak up the vibes of this popular hub.

The luxurious four‑course à la carte dinner to follow is crafted by chef‑patron Tom Hannon and served in the pub’s restaurant. Cornish produce – including Porthilly oysters, locally reared duck and 28‑day‑aged ribeye steak – are fashioned into sumptuous classics, while puddings such as salted‑caramel apple tarte tatin are the epitome of indulgence.

Co‑owner Katie Hannon ensures everything runs smoothly behind the scenes, while the front‑of‑house team are on hand to recommend the perfect tipple to accompany your pick of the menu. Whiskey lovers, meanwhile, may want to finish with the Taoscán Experience: the world’s first tawny port and chestnut single‑malt served with Tom’s bitter orange chocolate petits fours.

A fun finale to an evening at The Rising Sun (read our review) involves a short after‑dinner stroll down the hill to sister Irish bar, Fitzpatrick’s, where the team famously mix a zippy sundowner or two.
