The Riverview Hotel, Balmain, Sydney

Built in 1880, The Riverview Hotel is a heritage-listed delight of a pub tucked away on a side street in Balmain. Formerly owned by Olympian Dawn Fraser, The Riverview was recently sold and refurbished, re-opening last November with a top-notch British chef, a great dining room and a sense of history.
