The gastropub phenomenon has well and truly taken hold of Sydney, thanks to our relentless quest for excellent food without the pomp, The Riverview Hotel has long been known for its impeccable dining offerings. While the relaxed public bar makes for the perfect, relaxed spot for an aperitif.

Whether it's a catch up with family over lunch, a night out with friends for dinner, a Corporate function or special event, our restaurant is the perfect destination. Light, bright and airy, in the quieter tree-lined streets of Balmain, we offer both private function rooms and break out areas perfect for groups.

Our food speaks for itself, offering the best of seasonal fare in a creative and delicious way that has earned us multiple awards over the years. And our wine list, beer and cocktails are the perfect accompaniment.

Neighbourhood Gem, recommended as great fora good for a Sunday roast, only the had run out!
So we headed upstairs and ordered at the restaurant. More expensive but chef went to the trouble to make sure our lamb shoulder had the trimmings of the roast. Will make sure we come earlier next time to try out the Pub Roast.

Beautiful hotel but service a bit off and no red wine glasses for our $70 bottle of Shiraz only white. Also I had to ask the waitress to provide new clean glasses for the red. Lamb shoulder was absolutely superb though.

Have been going to Riverview for 10 years but have been away for 5 months. Good to see the quality is still the same (Pls don't change too much). Food was excellent and service was good. A few more good red wines would help.

Everything great as usual apart from the cold addition when it should have been room temperature. But that doesn’t happen often.

Excellent pub food, good & pleasant service. Stairs are a bit of a problem for 'oldies'.
