We were recommended to eat at the Lauder Hotel. Excellent recommendation. Old style pub with excellent local beer and wines. Nobby (the proprietor) was very knowledgeable on wines and was passionate about local fare. We had a fantastic meal. I too would highly recommend.

Only place in town I think to get a meal. Our group enjoyed a nice pub meal after a days ride. Publican happy to run up a tab and let everyone pay individually. Just across the road from our accomodation.

Food was amazingly nice and staff were friendly. It did take over an hour to get our food - although to be fair they warned us when we came in that it would be a long wait. Loved the pub cat.

I just love country pubs and the people who run them. Nobby and Vicky are great examples of country hosts. Nobby is a winegrower and Vicky an expert on the local district and are both more than happy to share their knowledge. Dinner was very...More
