Food was amazing, the fishy board is on the cards for next time! Venison burgers, curry, scampi, calamari, fishcakes... And fries! And beer! And a wooden Harley Davidson... A wee gem of a restaurant! Will be back!

We were out and decided to stop for lunch after hearing good things about this establishment. To begin with we were sat a table where the blinds apparently did not work and the sun was blinding. We were then moved to a table were the inappropriate chairs for the table were comical. My chair was far too tall for the... More

I met a friend and her daughter here for dinner (having been several times before for a drink and a snack) and we were not disappointed. Friendly, helpful staff, very nice christmas decorations throughout, a good choice of menu (including specials) and definite value for money. Would not hesitate to go again for a full meal.

We visited the Leadburn Inn on Sunday 11th December, the Inn was warm and inviting and the staff welcomed us like old friends, the menu was extensive and then to baffle us even more they produced a specials menu. The food was fantastic as was the choice of beers and wines. For a great meal and great staff the Leadburn... More

Our normal "go to" Sunday Lunch restaurant was fully booked. I had heard that the food at the Leadburn was very good and thought we should give it a try. Our party was made up of 3 adults and 2 children under 7. I am suprised at the reviewer stating the staff were unfriendly. We were warmly welcomed in and... More

This is an ideal place for families. I was there with my eldest Son and Daughter in Law and my two Grandchildren. There is a very large indoor play area and you can keep an eye on your children as you eat. There were many very excited children here, so it was quite noisy. The food was very enjoyable as... 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.
