Fabulous atmosphere and unique food offering. The service was outstanding. We very rarely get wowed by a restaurant, but we did last night. Would definitely visit again when in the area.

About the restaurant
Set on Mitchell Hill, a medieval route from the city of Truro to the East, in a quiet, historical quarter, The Rising Sun is the hub of the local community and a destination for visitors to the county. Surrounded by charming lanes with views to the cathedral, diverse historical buildings, an abundance of trees and greenery.
Seven years ago Katie & Tom Hannon stepped into a very dark and sad shell of a pub. An overwhelming amount of work paled into insignificance against the excitement at what they thought could be created in this out of the way building with a very long and interesting history. A lot of hard labour ensued to create their vision of showcasing the best qualities of a modern pub; seamlessly combining carefully sourced, sophisticated yet familiar food and drink in a welcoming authentic pub environment. Elegant, delicious food alongside fantastic local beers, unusual wines and a great array of craft spirits all wrapped up in a relaxed atmosphere.

Very good food and good service. Highlights were: The bread prior to starters, haddock risotto (as good as we have ever tasted even when compared to various crab risottos - I would have liked the recipe), chicken supreme and dauphinoise potatoes. Beware, portions are large so no chance for us having a dessert. Prices are higher than most other eateries in Truro but the large portion size means they are fairly good value. Probably next time we would get two starters each and have a dessert. We ordered: Ham Hock terrine Haddock risotto Rib Eye with Dauphinoise Chicken supreme No wait for food and no feeling at any time of being rushed. Would eat here again.

St Ives
About the restaurant
Ingredients:
- One lovingly restored 19th century bank;
- Fifteen creative small plates full of flavour;
- Toped by three larger plates to show the chef's skill;
- Nine hand stretched, woodfired pizzas made with long fermented dough top with only the best ingredients.

Mix the above with great selection of quality Cornish beers and spirits and fold it carefully with a loving wine selection.

Turn the oven to exceptional service and bake it with a great big smile.

Serve it with friends and a double helping of good company!

Really love it here and come back whenever we are in st Ives. Pizzas were great - but were a little on the cold side. But tasted good.
