The Rising Sun Richmond

A well known pub, the Rising Sun Richmond has a traditional Australian style. Accompanied with a lovely restaurant, events, functions, rooftop beer garden, a large TAB for gambling, bottleshop until 1:00 AM and meals available seven days in Richmond Melbourne from 11:30 AM – 9:00 PM.

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. With a new 20 year lease recently signed, this pub and the Riser community family aren’t going anywhere

We are excited to see what the future holds for this landmark hotel.

There is currently submitted plans to have an electric roof built over the beer garden.

This roof will have 5 different sections that can be instantly remotely opened or shut, independently. This is an exciting project for the hotel. This will allow for socialising, dining and functions in the rooftop beer garden to occur every day of the year. There will also be new bathrooms built. We expect this to be completed by mid 2020 and will start taking bookings in advance, so you can secure your event.


Along with the TAB, there is an amazing rooftop beer garden, public bar and a dining area at the Rising Sun Richmond. We have daily meal specials, then happy hour in the afternoons. There is free pool on Monday. Check closely for the most popular sports event/ boxing/ UFC to be shown LIVE.


Are you planning a big football party, birthday party, wedding party, family get together or some other type of event, but you’re not quite sure which way to go with it yet? The Rising Sun Hotel is a fantastic option if you are looking to host an unforgettable event at a price that won’t break the bank.


The hotel offers up a bit of history to tell tales about around a fireplace (in the bar and restaurant) on a cold winter’s day or an icy cold beer al fresco style on Burnley street, or even on the rooftop beer garden.

A brand new glycol beer system is on its way, because our beer must be perfect. The food on offer would be delicious, and the spirits would be as wonderful as the casual conversations around you. This would be a pub that you would long to return to.
