Hotel is run by Ken and his daughter Sarah. Management is very friendly and will do all they can to make your stay comfortable. The most important thing is the beer, the pale ale was beautiful and cold. Nice verandah to sit on outside whilst having a beer, restaurant also very good You won't get better accommodation in this area

My wife and I stayed at the Rising Sun for a night recently and we dined in the hotel restaurant. Based upon our experience, I would not recommend either the accomodation or the pub meals. Most disappointing was the meal - it was terrible. I ordered risoto, but was not risoto. Whoever cooked it was not qualified - it was... More

Enjoyed a quick coffee on the terrace whilst passing through the Clare Valley Riesling trail. Nice friendly staff and the place had real character. Would recommend. Established 1851 and one of the oldest hotels in SA.

We were looking for a place to stay that had some character and charm to base our visit to the Clare valley. This place achieved what we wanted. You have a choice to stay in the hotel itself or in rooms alongside ( the converted stables/mews). We stayed in the front converted room. It was lovely. It had really character... More

We've eaten here before and it was great. This time my curry was served with a pile of tiny, cold Asian mushooms. Service was slow and prices a bit steep. The dining room is turn of the last century and nicely laid out with white table clothes. Overall atmosphere is good. Please take note of these comments as we hope... More

We were driving back from the Clare Valley looking for a place for lunch and decided to stop here in Auburn before returning back to Adelaide. My husband and I both decided on the beef burger. This was the best burger I have had in Australia. We have lived here four years, coming from Canada. Great moist beef patty, wonderful... More

We went there for a meal and the food was great. I had the burger which was delicious and my partner had the beef schnitzel which was super tendy and tasty. The only negative which was wasn't a major issue was that it did a little while for the waitress to take our order.

Stayed recently overnight on a Saturday night after a wedding. Accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Continental Breakfast provided in fridge and everything you needed to make it was there. Had lunch there as well and tge food was terrific. Try the pulled pork spring rolls! Happily stay here again if it was just hubby and I.

We recently stayed in the Clare Valley for nearly a week and ate here most nights. We did have dinner at a couple of other places but the Rising Sun was by far the best. The meals were fantastic, restaurant quality, and the meat was cooked just as we had asked for. Meals were excellent value too! The service was... More
