Stayed here for two nights, selected it while en-route towards the Clare Valley. Wonderful warm reception in spite of arrival during hotel staff's Xmas function. Dinner served promptly, room upgraded, and of course great wines from the local wineries (they recommended us a splendid Seraph's Crossing 2009 shiraz --no longer available currently). Rooms (even upgraded) are quite small but clean... More

The two of us travelling north in south Australian turned to the west for a brief visit and found the Clare valley. The Clare Valley is renowned for it's quality wine and food and competes well with the Barossa Valley for it's wine and food. We did find a typical Aussie pub, south of Clare at Auburn, "The rising Sun".... More

We decided to return for an evening meal. I had a curried beef with cardamom and black pepper. My partner had Coopers pale ale battered Barramundi and salad. The salad was fresh and crisp and Barramundi tasty. The curry was just right tasty with just enough heat. We followed this with an Affagato. My partner was a little disappointed because... More

18 months ago I was here for lunch and it was disappointing and ordinary. Today was entirely different! There for lunch on a busy Sunday and the place was packed to the rafters. The staff, however, managed well and made sure that we felt like there was only a little crowd! Now the food was brilliant! I had a sticky... More

Fantastic food and a really great vibe. Can't recommend this place more. The food was delicious. Coming from Melbourne it's been the best stop off we've had after traveling in SA for two weeks. We will definitely come here again for a great feed and friendly service. The accommodation exceeded my expectations by a mile! And the food is what... More

Stayed at the historic Rising Sun Hotel on a friend's recommendation for two nights in July 2015, on a photography shoot in the Clare Valley. Auburn is a beautifully historic town in the Clare Valley, and quite well situated to wineries and other bistoric towns. We got a twin share where rooms were comfortable, beds a little small for my... More

Lovely restored hotel with focus on local wines all reasonably priced and a wide range. The service was great and like most eating establishments...there is a reason the chef has daily specials! Normally I would stay away from aussie pub menus that have indian/thai meals on their menus (unless they have a recognised cuisine chef!)..so i took the plunge and... More

So upon leaving SA for job opportunities I needed to have a leaving do. Previously I had heard many raves about this pub. Great pub meals and fantastic venue as well as many other positives.

The ideal base for exploring the superb wineries of the Clare Valley, walk or cycle the Riesling Trial or enjoy the annual Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend. Authentic Aussie pub, superb food, original accomodation in a beautiful building with open fire places and warm and friendly staff.
