Riverview Hotel

Riverview Hotel is a very popular local pub in Balmain. The ground level is the public bar while the upper level is a restaurant. It is set in a historic building which gives this place a real sense of history and narrative. The Riverview Hotel is a good place to enjoy their range of beers, especially on sports nights.


This place brings a new meaning to top-notch pub grub. Riverview means restaurant quality food, made with fabulous local produce, at pub prices. That?s the mantra of the ?gastro pub? concept of chef Tim Condon, a term incidentally he thinks is often abused. Bridging a much-needed gap between high-end city restaurants and pubs, this is the Anglo equivalent of the French Brasserie. The lovely dining room with a leafy outlook is the ultimate lazy lunch destination. Relax, it?s Sunday and that?s the best and buzziest time to go. Scotch fillet with mushroom ragout and a big red?

Just lovely, pub grub this ain't , it's much more upmarket and so good you could have a milestone birthday or wedding here. Excellent seafood and wine list. Can't wait to return.

Nice classic pub style layout with old furniture and artworks around the joint. The extensive menu will surely adapt to any taste buds.
Recommend the burger, pie and the tapas ??

Gorgeous Pub located in Balmain which has a strong local following. Arriving at 8pm this place is packed on ground floor with a mature crowd.... The menu is simple but to suit all tastes. Customer service is great and the food comes out very fast. I highly recommend the Beef and Guinness pie, colcannon and roasted Dutch carrot

The food is delicious here!! Hidden in the corner off the main road, this local pub/hotel is worth the visit. Very friendly service and a general relaxed vibe

Contrary to the views of many of my friends, I'm not a huge fan of the Riverview. Whilst I understand that there is a fantastic restaurant upstairs, I have been put off the place since an incident with a barman who when I asked for a VB replied 'we dont serve VB and are proud of it'. What has happened to the days of good, honest, working mans pubs on the Balmain peninsular? Many other better options if you're looking for a drinking spot in the area.
