We were looking for a nice place to stop for lunch before hitting the highway to Sydney where the options are limited. Lerida Estate is just off the main road, perched on a slight rise, providing a lo... read more »
I will give a fair review to this place "average" because we did not actually try their products, rather we were in and out within 5 minutes empty handed. We have been driving over 4hrs and thought we... read more »
We visited here today on our way back from Goulburn for a coffee and cake. The scones were really lovely and the home made jam delicious! The views were great. Not sure who the man serving the wine wa... read more »
Good food once it got here staggered 15 mins apart. Two tables who ordered 15 mins after us got served first I mean how does it take 50 mins to make a beef salad and a couple of cold meat platters the wine was good though. The dogs at a restaurant begging for food really did not reflect well. All in all not sure I'd come back
Wine tasting is great, with a very affable guy doing the tastings, and definitely worth a stop off if you are in the region. They also have a good selection of wines. However, the cafe' is honestly the worst place to go for food in the Canberra wine district, and has prompted me to write my one and only negative review on Google. A pie and mash will set you back $26, and a very, very plain pulled pork panini is 18.5 ( to give you an idea of how absurd their pricing is for a cafe). The worst is their 'Ploughman's lunch' however, which advertises that it includes prosciutto, and then only includes one very small slice alongside a stack of apple and cucumber. When we asked for another couple of slices we were charged extra, which was very disappointing given the circumstance. Do yourself a favour and go anywhere else in the region, Lake George winery charges similar prices for real restaurant food, and Lark Hill charges more but provides so much extra for your money. Alternatively if you do want to stop off at Lerida for wine, and have a taste for average cafe food then save yourself money and fill up in Melbourne. Shame on Lerida for taking advantage of people on wine tastings (and the fact that all of the better places book out quickly) with their terrible cafe.
Enjoyed the wine tasting will visit again
Winemakers at their best.
We came on a weekday on the drive back from Canberra to Sydney and spent an hour talking and tasting wines with the friendly and interesting manager. The wines were excellent, and we will definitely be returning on a weekend as they have food and live music.
