My sister and I ate here whilst cycling the Reiver's Route. The food was excellent and very clearly homemade on the premises. I had a delicious chicken curry and my sister had scampi. The puddings were also of a high standard - homemade chocolate sponge and a lovely apple crumble. It is great to see a chef taking such a pride in producing such delicious wholesome food and after a day outdoors I would recommend a meal here. Thank you.

We were staying at Keilder campsite and the owner told us about the pubs at Newcastleton and how nice they were. So off we went and the food was amazing. We had steak. It was superb. Good local pub and friendly people. Reasonable prices and well worth a visit.

Room Tip: We ate only.

Visited the Liddesdale Hotel in April 2014 for a drink and was so impressed with the choice of ales we decided to stay for Dinner.
my wife and I both had the gammon steak with home made chips, it was cooked to perfection and was a proper gammon steak about an inch thick. we returned the following night and we're not disappointed. another splendid meal. My wife does not eat chips but had the home made chips two nights in a row. the chef came out to ask if we enjoyed our meal and from the conversation it was apparent he was passionate about food.

Well worth a visit. We stayed in our motor home so cannot comment on the rooms.

Very quiet, we were the only customers! Slightly worried until the starters arrived which were excellent, beautifully presented, very tasty and good value at £4.95 each.
Next came out our mains which were both 10oz Sirloin steaks. again excellent value at £14.95 each and well presented. Not just that but they were both cooked to our liking as specified and served with home made onion rings and chips, mushrooms, tomato and a very nice salad.
All told the bill came to a little over £45 including a round of drinks.
Definitely worth a try.

We really enjoyed our stay at the liddesdale, from the initial welcome to the last goodbye the staff were extremely accommodating. When we had a minor road accident and would not meet the arranged dinner schedule, we arrived in our room to find sandwiches along with a nice note which really made our terrible evening a lot brighter.
The food we had was also amazing, the chicken pie was, well there are no words.
Our tv didn't work but we really didn't bother much about it as we only wanted the news.
Overall a great stay and if we are back in the area for a stay, the liddesdale hotel will be the first place we book.

Room Tip: No fitness centre or swimming pool

Situated in a sleepy village with very friendly locals and amidst beautiful scenery, this small hotel is an absolute gem. Although we arrived early we were met with a warm welcome and shown to a spotlessly clean room overlooking Douglas Square. The lounge bar has an inviting open fire and there is the option of taking evening meals here too. There is a generous menu and the food is wholesome local produce, carefully prepared, well presented and delicious. The voucher deal was excellent value for money and we will definitely return as it is such a charming place.

We wanted to book somewhere to get away from it all for New Year, and this little hotel certainly did the trick.
The location is wonderful, right in the heart of some fantastic walking and cycling. The village itself has everything you need, and the hotel bar is always very friendly and welcoming.

The staff could not have been more helpful, very attentive, nothing was too much trouble.

The room was spotlessly clean, and a nice cosy size. We opted for the four poster room, which has a wonderful jacuzzi corner bath as a nice addition!

The absolute top quality of this hotel though, is the food, the chef is brilliant and the food is wonderful, we could not have asked for anything better!

Thanks for a lovely stay
