We've been big fans of the Rising Sun Hotel for a number of years, however tonight's dinner was truely awful. Lettuce in salads was slimy, black & obviously not edible, service was well below average. We had to ask for an ice bucket for our bottle of wine. We ate very little of our meals & won't eat there again.... More

Couldn't work out where to eat so stopped by and was not disappointed. Excellent menu for lunch and dinner. Has a tapas menu as well. Got a few things off the tapas menu and was surprised a country pub did such a good job. Wot a bottle of local rose and spend way to long watching the world go by.

We were staying nearby in Auburn, and had a meal at the Pub on our last night. The place was humming, with locals, including the cricket team & supporters, and tourists like us. A great atmosphere, with friendly, attentive service, and the meal was superb. My husband enjoyed the best sirloin steak he's had in years, and the side salad,... More

The waitress from Queensland was lovely, gent in the bar was friendly and had a sense of humour, and the meals were very... More

We stayed here for one night recently. We arrived early and where quickly provided a room. The room was small, dark, cold and in need of refurbishment. There was an small ensuite which did not have a door separating the toilet from the bedroom, which was less than ideal. Initially there was problems getting the A/C to work, but the... More

We had a small outside room that was beautifully restored and very comfortable. The new managers were extremely friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We ate dinner in the hotel, which was lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed the palm sugar chicken and the angus steak was cooked perfectly. A step back in time which was very charming.

We had the Executive Mews room and what a lovely old authentic room it was, with modern touches. The combustion heater was fantastic on a cold night and I loved the fact that they even provided DVD movies to watch. Lots of added touches made it a lovely room at a reasonable price. The bed was so comfortable and there... More

We went there for lunch today. Last time we ate there was several years ago. The pub is a beautiful place. We were welcomed as soon as we walked in and shown a table. The service here was fantastic they made you feel really welcome. But the highlight was the food we started with the fried chicken pieces they brought... More
