Located on a crossroads, the Leadburn attracts a lot of passing trade. It is known as a biker-friendly inn, and the food is very good - lots of choice, great service and not expensive.

Heard about this place through a random recommendation at the hairdresser’s, had a great experience and it’s now on our list of good local pubs to take visitors/friends to. Spotlessly clean, slightly dated decor but super slick furnishings wouldn’t feel right in this location. Plenty...More

The Leadburn Inn is friendly, cosy Country pub with "real beer, proper food & comfy beds". We pride ourself on totally fresh, seasonal produce, sourced locally. Our menu is classically British comfort food, where the flavours of the ingredients speak for themselves....! We also have an ever changing specials board. Our cask conditioned ale selection changes regularly as does our bottled beer selection. We are independently owned and very family friendly. So much so there is a purpose built, 3 level, kids soft play area in a separate part of the building. We now have boutique bedrooms available. They are a mix of double, family and quad, Please see our website for details.
