The best local boozer Just outside of Melbourne’s main metropolis is The Rising Sun Hotel, a old-fashioned public house that’s serving steaks and pouring ice cold brews. On the menu you’ll find all your gastro pub classics as well as a few sophisticated mains. The wine list is a cut above what you’d find in most other locals and they also have some great ‘package deals’ which can save you a few bob. Come for the weekly Riser Pub quiz on Monday nights or come on Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday to enjoy some live jazz and a pint. Get here and enjoy this classic old boozer, you won’t be sorry. Best Dish: The “Riser” famous brioche burger (which changes daily).
