The Team

Meet the team that is behind bringing you a great experience when you visit us.

Tim and Terri Kendall


Tim and Terri full-filled their dream and became Landlord and Lady of The Barley Sheaf in January 2020. With Tim's career as a chef in high established restaurants and Hotels the idea was to open an un-pretentious relaxed pub serving the best quality food and drink for all to enjoy. With a truly amazing vision for the future they have seen the pub develop and evolve with the help and support of the fantastic team around them. 

When they were approached with a offer to do the same at The Rising Sun Inn, they couldn't believe their luck to have an amazing venue in the north and south of Cornwall.



Tim chose cooking as a career because of his love of eating and he knew he wanted to be a chef from a young age! He began his career at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant in Padstow. After a year, Tim decided to move to London to work for Marcus Wareing and was a part of the opening team at his restaurant, The Gilbert Scott. He then took a position with Michel Roux Junior at the 2 Michelin starred Le Gavroche. 

After working in London for 2 years, Tim came back to Cornwall to work at some of the best restaurants in the county. In October 2016 Tim won South West Chef of the Year Young Professional whilst working again for Rick Stein. In January 2017 Tim started working with Guy Owen, at The Idle Rocks in St Mawes, Cornwall, where he once again won the prestigious award of South Chef Of The Year 2018 he was then promoted to head chef in beginning 2019.  


In January 2020 Tim and his wife Terri took over The Barley Sheaf Pub at Gorran and further in 2022 The Rising Sun Inn Altarnun, their idea was to open a relaxed pub serving the best quality food and drink in the area. The only way they could achieve this is with the help and support of the fantastic team around them.
