The Riverview Hotel Balmain

The Riverview Hotel showcases how pub grub has transformed over the years

The Riverview Hotel has endured since the 1880s a bit of interesting trivia: former Olympic gold medal swimmer Dawn Fraser was a licensee of the pub from 1978 to 1983

The dining area upstairs looks rather dingy, the carpet scuffed and fading brown lacquered surfaces – it appears outdated in a word. However it shouldn’t matter because the food will surprise you – in a pleasant way. Mains are comfortingly English – your meat and two veg requirements are easily and tastily fulfilled by the perfectly cooked Cone bay barramundi, charred sprouts, cauliflower & quinoa and the Traditional Sunday Roast’ riverine sirloin with trimmings & Yorkshire pudding  

Lip-smacking desserts offered are the Toffee apple pannacotta, caramel popcorn and apple sorbet and my personal favourite is the Chocolate mousse, honeycomb, orange and sherry vinegar caramel $15

Fried haloumi, pearl couscous, lemon yoghurt & ra el hanout $16 

Crispy lamb, orange, witlof, mint yoghurt & millet $19 

‘Traditional Sunday Roast’ riverine sirloin with trimmings & Yorkshire pudding $30 

Cone bay barramundi, charred sprouts, cauliflower & quinoa $32

Barber’s 1833 Vintage Reserve Cheddar (Hard, Cow’s) Dorset UK $8
Brillat-Savarin (Triple cream, Cow’s) Normandy, France $10

Toffee apple pannacotta, caramel popcorn and apple sorbet $15


Chocolate mousse, honeycomb, orange and sherry vinegar caramel $15
