The Riverview Hotel was built at the very pinnacle of the 19th century Balmain pub boom. The first pub in Balmain was opened in 1842 and by the 1880's, over 40 licensed premises were in operation to service the 15,000 residents who lived and worked in the area - politely described at the time as one of Australia's more 'social' suburbs.

There have been many colourful characters associated with the running of the Riverview Hotel during its history - both men and women. From founding licensee, Thomas Morton (whom had attempted to establish the premises no less than five times) through to Olympic gold medal swimmer, Dawn fraser (who was licensee from 1978 to 1983). The river of the Riverview name is the Parramatta River, the site of where Sydney-siders flocked to watch William Beach become a world champion rower in 1884.

The Riverview has long been associated with good food. In its turn of the century hey-day it was licensed as a "Victualler", an old fashioned term meaning "a tavern owner who is able to supply good food, beverages and other provision for vessels at sea." One hundred and thirty three years on, The Riverview has continued this tradition of providing excellent food.
