A great, cosy pub. The food is a little on the high side price wise for a pub but good quality. The atmosphere is great. We were there for the band and everyone was up, dancing and singing.

Steak & Guinness pie definitely worth a try! 😋Also had the bread basket, seared scallops, broccolini and grilled salmon. Left with a full stomach and also loved the interior design! Only con was that it was a little understaffed for a Saturday.

Lovely spot! We ate in the restaurant upstairs and our server couldn't have been friendlier or more accomodating. They happily did vegan options for me, and the service was excellent. Well worth the good reviews!

Met up for a couple of drinks with the girls, great ambiance, the fire kept us toasty, perfect for a winters night. The Wine & Dine Promotion on Wednesday nights was great value for money, food was excellent and staff were friendly and accomodating. I will definitely be back soon.

Nothing says Sunday like a good old fashioned Sunday roast. Serving up a traditional roast of the day every Sunday. I had the beef brisket roast served with all the trimmings including roast potatoes, cabbage, roast beetroot and a traditional crispy Yorkshire pudding accompanied with a mustard gravy and horseradish cream. My only additional request is that there is more gravy! My plate in particular didn’t have a lot of gravy but one of the other guests on my table had slightly more than me. Needed some additional gravy particularly to eat the crispy Yorkshire pudding. A filling and satisfying Sunday roast lunch, I am keen to come back again.

We visit this lovely little pub on a nearly weekly basis. Every time we order the Sunday roast and WITHOUT fail it is always the tastiest in Sydney. Great service, and cosy fireplace too.

Enjoyed a wonderfully casual dinning experience here last evening with friends. It was highly recommended, it’s they were correct. Some loverly wines on offer to complement the food and company. The staff were extremely welcoming and I certainly recommend this to any group wanting a fun casual dinner.

Really great Sunday roast - big portion and very tasty. The beef was so soft! Cosy setting and great, friendly service. Very neat and clean. I will be back!

The staff here are nothing less than wonderful! We have amazing help in terms of our food order (it was our first time haha) and the wine/beer range was lovely! For sure coming back here time and time again...



6 stars if I could. Great selection of local and imported beverages at reasonable prices, food is fantastic, best steak and Guinness pie in Sydney, and a great inner city bar to be honest. Customer service is always above par, staff went above and beyond for each request. Next time I'm in balmain, I know exactly where I'll be heading. The Riverview Hotel!!!

Built-in 1880, the Riverview Hotel is a heritage-listed delight of a pub tucked away on a beautiful tree-lined side street in Balmain. Formally owned by one of Australia's Olympic Gold medal swimming icons, Dawn Fraser, the Riverview is much loved and known to many, retains it’s original ambience whilst mixed with a modern edge. Our traditional and multi-award-winning traditional Sunday Roast, with all of the trimmings and Yorkshire pudding, is legendary. The multi-award-winning Riverview is consistently rated as one of the best pub dining rooms in Sydney. However, what many don’t know, is the restaurant experience upstairs is simply divine. The fine dining, amazing service, fantastic food and a beautiful selection of wines creates a memorable experience for all our customers. Our new summer menu is designed to accommodate the myriad of individual palates and our Chefs take the finest ingredients, working their magic to deliver a tasting experience which delights all.
