The Riverside Hotel is a public house and hotel located in Cinderhill Street, Monmouth, Wales. The hotel has a bar and a function room and has 17 bedrooms.


The hotel was originally known as The Rising Sun from at least 1822 until the late 1980s when the name was changed. An inn called The Sun was recorded in 1717 in the same area but it is not clear if the establishment is the same. From the 1840s until 1972 the pub had many landlords some of who are Howells, Watkins, Symonds, Mills, Lewis and Underwood. In 1972 the Rising Sun was opened as a Motel and run by John and Florence Poyner.[1][2]
