Rising Sun InnPortmellon
This pub is very close to the beach in a lovely cove just south of Mevagissey. An attractively whitewashed 17th-century free house, it has one main bar, separate restaurant and children's room. The real ales change constantly, with up to four often available from both local and distant breweries. Very popular for lunchtime and evening meals (available 12:00-15:00, 18:30-20:30 - evening booking advisable). No public transport, but Mevagissey has good a bus service to St. Austell and is only 1.5km (or 20 min rather hilly walk) away. Beware of the high tides in strong easterly winds!
