The pub is an achievement to find and has good setting. Probably due to thick walls could do with the fire having been lit even lunchtime to warm the chill. There was only one beer on offer and that was quite dear. The meal portions were smaller than I remembered and there was a lack of vegetables. Very friendly service... More

We stopped in here for lunch whilst staying in Slaggyford and were delighted to find a decent selection of veggie options in addition to the usual pub fare. A couple of the options were sold out, but after explaining this the chef very helpfully offered us some alternatives, which proved to be more than satisfactory. Two of us opted for... More

We both had Lamb Sunday dinner and everything was home cooked, Yorkshire, mash and roasties. Lamb was cooked to perfection and to top it off it was great... More

I decided to go here after reading the reviews on trip advisor. Not too far of a drive from Alston as we were looking for a lunch spot after our ride on the South -Tyndale railway. We read the reviews for all the restaurants in Alston and decided to take a chance and go for a drive to the Kirkstyle... More

Visited here yesterday after not being able to get a lunchtime reservation with another local restaurant. A long windy drive but wow! We arrived to a pub situated near a grave yard...the decor looked like it had not been done since the 60s but lots of quirky funny little signs ("I listen to what the voices in my wife's head...

The Kirkstyle Inn is a great halfway meeting place when we are meeting up with my daughter and her family. A few weeks ago we met here for Sunday Lunch and were delighted with our meal. The roast beef was melt on your mouth and the vegetables were perfectly cooked. The meal was presented beautifully and the whole family enjoyed... More

We visited with a party of 18 walkers, without exception they were impressed with the standard and value of the lunch. Even with 18 we were served very quickly.

We have just returned from spending a week in this beautiful area of Northumberland. We called into the Kirkstyle Inn on a few occasions. The food and hospitality were excellent, as were the locals whom very friendly. The meals we had were tasty, well presented, reasonably priced and were very generous portions. Another positive is that it is dog friendly... More
