The perfect way to celebrate.

Whether you’re hosting a laid back gathering, or a formal or corporate event, we have the flexibility and a space for your special occasion. The hotel can cater for smaller, more private gatherings, for up to 10 guests as well as larger groups of 110 people, subject to seating configuration.

Specialising in private functions and bookings, The Riverview has several function spaces available to suit your requirements.

The Birchgrove Restaurant, Private Dining Room and The Lounge offer unique spaces with exclusive backdrops which can be tailored to suit specific requirements and are readily available for private use.

Our function menus enable you to have an event catered with an ideal balance of contemporary pub bistro and fine dining. Our menus offer a wide range of delicious options including à la carte, two and three course set menus, canapés, pizza boards, high tea or a whole suckling pig.


Our dishes are designed to be shared among guests or enjoyed individually.
