Riverview Hotel, Balmain

The Riverview Hotel is a heritage-listed pub located in Balmain, a suburb in the inner west region of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Australian swimming champion, Dawn Fraser, was publican of the Riverview from 1978 to 1983.


Between 1888 and 1913 the pub was named Bergin's Hotel after the publican Joseph Bergin. In late 2008, after renovation, it reopened.[1]

The Riverview Hotel is listed on the Inner West Council local government heritage register. The corner building was built in the Arts and Crafts style with distinctive brick work details. It was remodelled again c. 1909.[2]
