LAKES COAST VISITOR GUIDE | PAGE 45 LINDENOW Hearty, food and a warm country welcome The Lindenow Farmers Home Hotel (known to locals as simply the Lindenow Hotel) was taken over by owner/manager Terry Watt about a decade ago. Coming from a family of publicans, Terry's vision was to create a familyfriendly local pub with "hearty, high-quality food", and that's exactly what he's done. Located in Lindenow, a small vegetable-farming town of around 300 people, near Bairnsdale, the hotel was first built in 1908. The atmosphere inside is warm and welcoming, with an emphasis on socialising over fabulous food and your favourite drinks. "In Lindenow, we are surrounded by some of the most rich, fertile farming land – and best vegetable farms – in Australia, and we're also close to freshly caught seafood, amazing breweries and excellent wineries," Terry said. "So we source all our produce from local farmers for our chef Sam to use to create our delicious hotel meals." The hotel has an extensive, seasonal lunch and dinner menu, which includes roasts, pizza and seafood, as well as vegan and vegetarian options, and delicious desserts, ranging from tarts to classic ice-cream sundaes. The hotel also has a good wine list, and can always pair an appropriate local wine to your meal. There is a good range of tap beer, as well as 'Hard Solo' – a newly added on-tap beverage that Terry expects to be a "big hit" this summer. And being a classic country pub, the hotel also has a TAB and a pool table. The Lindenow Farmers Home Hotel is located at 167 Main Road, Lindenow, and is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 11pm, and Sundays from noon to 11pm. To find out more, call 5157 1210 or find the hotel on Facebook. The classic facade of the Lindenow Farmers Home Hotel.
