Met up with cousins for a nice counter meal while in Launceston. Three of the four of us decided to have the roast pork. It was just great, came with wonderful crackling, it was tender and generous, and accompanied by seven (yes, 7) vegetables all of which were perfectly prepared. Table service was lovely and efficient, wines reasonably priced and... More

Excellent pub food, the service is always friendly and you are made to feel welcome the moment you walk through the door. If you are after great pub meals the Riverview is hard to pass up in Launceston.

If you're a chicken parmy fan then I recommened giving the Riverview Hotel a go. As a connoisseur of the parmy this is the best I've had in Launceston and the only one I'll be going back for now. Good old fashioned pub at the front and a neatly set up cafe at the back and you can dine in... More

This was the best value for money pub meal we'd had in ages. Nothing fancy, just good honest food at good honest prices. We'll cooked, very tasty. Friendly service and dining room at the back very welcoming and family friendly.

My wife and I visited on a Monday, two days before Christmas, for a counter meal during a busy Christmas shopping day. We mostly had the bistro to ourselves, and each ordered a rump steak; fantastic value at just $18. The food was fresh, simple and beautifully cooked, and put many higher priced venues in the city to shame.

I had a quick lunch here last week. Friendly service and great food. Lunch menu is $18 and I had a smoked salmon salad. Service was fast and friendly.

I had the Atlantic Salmon and vegetables with a bottle of Jantz. Perfect ! Great atmosphere, awesome service and just a nice place to be to relax in the enviroment of a traditional family owned pub but with a menu belonging to a nice resturant.
