THE Ulmarra Hotel has been named as having one of the best beer gardens in New South Wales, finally receiving the recognition it deserves, according to owner Edwina Baird.

The accolade was announced in last Friday's edition of The Daily Telegraph.

"It certainly took us by surprise, we are really excited," Ms Baird said.

"We love the pub and everyone who comes here loves the pub.

"I'm just glad that people are finally talking about us."

Ms Baird manages the hotel with her son, Dane Baird.

The Bairds took over the pub seven years ago and have been doing plenty of work on the place, including completely replacing the front verandas and metal lace work, and putting in new bathrooms.

"We fell in love with the place and bought the hotel because of its charm, it was our choice to restore the place in its original style and not to renovate it," she said.

The response from the public has been overwhelming, with Friday's business showing an immediate improvement. The pub has had a busy summer but Friday was better than expected, Ms Baird said.

"People who travel the highway are looking for a place that is not a service centre. They can get out of the car here and really relax," she said.

"We're chuffed to be named in the top 10."
