Rising SunMitchell Hill
This local pub on the edge of the city centre is much frequented by local drinkers although there is a substantial food offering as well, with an emphasis on Cornwall and local produce. Although now open-plan, it has several drinking areas, a small bar inside the door leading to a slightly larger one beyond, and a spacious drinking/dining area on a higher level beyond which then leads to the small sheltered patio garden at the rear. Although there are 4 handpumps, the beer is dispensed straight from casks in a small cellar behind the bars; the changing beers are generally local with at least one of them a strong premium ale. The pub is up a short but rather steep hill; you should allow about 15 min walk to/from the buses. Parking is difficult, the space at the front holds only 4-5 cars. Note that opening hours may vary slightly in the summer months.
