The Rising Sun Hotel

The Rising Sun Richmond was established in the mid 1800’s. Having celebrated the 150th year as a licensed hotel last year. Similarly, celebrating 20 years as our home since the hotel was purchased in 2000.

The original pub has been lovingly restored to its former glory with many modern touches added for comfort and convenience. Guests are invited to enjoy all that is on offer from Happy Hour to award winning wines, beers and cocktails, tasty food options (including an extensive vegan menu), live music every Friday evening, Sunday lunches or just to relax with friends at one of Melbourne’s favourite pubs!

Located in Richmond, this bar caters events for all occasions and budgets. With a function room capable of holding up to 200 people, they have something to suit every type of party or celebration. Their team will even help with sourcing food, drink and entertainment so you can enjoy your day without any fuss.

The hotel has gone through many changes of ownership over the years, but it still manages to maintain that classic feel with each new owner. Soon after being purchased by developers who planned to turn it into a block of apartments, the building was saved from demolition when they decided restore the old styled pub!

A new glycol beer system has been installed to ensure that our beer is perfect every time. The food on offer are delicious, and the spirits would be as wonderful as the casual conversations around you. This is a Richmond bar where you will want to return again and again. It offers up a bit of history about its surroundings to tell tales about around a fireplace (in the bar or restaurant) on cold winter’s day or an icy cold beer al fresco style on Burnley street, or even on the rooftop beer garden for those with more adventurous tastes!
