Modern Australian
We all know that country pubs are the heart and soul of Australian townships and Balldale Hotel is no different. 115 years old and full of history, it is one of the great pubs in the Riverina where the community and visitors come to enjoy a cold beer, have a laugh and a good feed.

Located between Albury and the Rutherglen wine region in a classic Australian village, we’re within easy reach of Howlong and Corowa. We like to think that we serve classic pub fare with a bit of flare, but come and check us out yourself. If you’re around, come and relax in our beer garden and listen to live music every Sunday afternoon.

    This out of the way pub was a great little find, having been lovingly restored, with both covered and uncovered outdoor areas as well as 2 Fire places indoors. They have live music on most Sundays and are too willing to please. Meals were above pub standards and generous, all in all we wi be back to support this out back hotel.

    We both had the cannelloni with an added green salad, an excellent meal. We booked the dining room for 7pm but got there early at 6.30 so had room to ourselves save for another group who arrived at 7pm. It's just a nice place to have a meal in the middle of no where. Accommodation is being planned there too so we'll definitely have a weekend away in the future.

    We love the Balldale and often go for a family friendly dinner or lunch. The kids love the sandpit, and the meals are generous. Only feedback would be the need to update the vintage of wines listed on the menu. However we enjoyed the wine we chose regardless. Will be back!!
