The traditional bar and original bistro provide old world charm, while the new multipurpose space & beer garden deliver modern comfort.

The original bar is famous among locals.  An old world gem the owners made sure not to touch with the pubs recent renovations.


The bar also featured in the Aussie movie "Backyard Ashes" as it had that old Aussie pub charm not often seen these days. Unfortunately, the traditional Aussie bar is becoming very much a thing of the past, with many hotels choosing to replace rather than restore this feature.


The bar may look old world but the pubs facilities are not. With TAB, VIP lounge, bistro, multipurpose space, bottle shop and beer garden the pub can accommodate all your needs. Whether it be a few cold ones with mates, a romantic dinner for two, a family function or something in between the RIV has you covered.


The hotel also offers out door seating on both Fitzmaurice Street and Crampton Street.


Disabled access is provided via the beer garden and VIP lounge entrances located at the back of the premises, and a disabled toilet complete with baby change table can be found in the beer garden.


To top it all off the staff are knowledgeable, friendly and there to make sure you have a great time.
