Food-wise this hotel offers a selection of hearty and delicious dishes to satisfy the hungriest guest and ensure quality and taste. Traditional Scottish fare is demonstrated in dishes such as haggis fritters with pepper sauce and tomato chutney. The carnivores among your party might want to attempt the Liddesdale Grill; choose from a mouth-watering 8oz chargrilled sirloin steak, or a mighty 12oz T-bone steak, both enjoyed with grilled mushrooms, tomatoes and onion rings as well as a choice of sauces.
If that sounds a bit too much, fear not, the lighter options on offer are equally charming. Some highlights include crab and coriander fishcakes, served with minted yoghurt and a choice of home-cut chipped or baby potatoes, and swordfish with a refreshing citrus salad. You may then have enough room to sample something from the dessert menu; more specifically their sticky toffee pudding, butterscotch sauce and honeycomb ice cream, or a rhubarb and stem ginger oat crumble, which will definitely leave you feeling full, fuzzy and warm.
Aside from offering excellent cuisine, this hotel serves as a perfect base for the activities and events offered in the surrounding area, of which there are plenty, including walking, trekking, biking, shooting and fishing. Newcastleton is the best of both worlds - not only is it a pretty village with all the benefits of rural living, with its own bustling local economy of tourism and small businesses, but it is also a mere half hour's drive to Carlisle. Make the most of a trip to this beautiful part of the country with a visit to the Liddesdale Hotel.
