Lovely pub with great food and reasonably priced too.

We used the Kirkstyle Inn as a meeting point half way between our home in Kendal and our daughter's home in Newcastle. It was perfect! A lovely pub with friendly staff, and the food was first class. We were made to feel very welcome and will visit again soon. Thanks,

We visited here while holidaying in the area, based on the reviews on here. It was worth it, and I would highly recommend eating here. Such a friendly welcome from the staff, stunning views out of the front windows, and some good, freshly cooked pub food. The portions were sizeable, but they are happy to serve smaller portions of the... More

We were recommended to visit the Kirkstyle inn by a local taxi driver. What a little gem. A proper authentic pub, with beautiful views across the valley. We had the game pie off the specials board and it was all we had hoped for, and more. The vegetarian option was also delicious - not your average "I suppose we should... More

A warm welcome to a cosy country pub. Food was freshly prepared and portions generous. I had the beer battered cod and chips, hubby had the game pie, all delicious.

Called in for a beer at 1450 in the middle of a long Saturday walk, only to be told "Sorry we are closed", even when there were two customers at the bar with full pints. It's the only pub for seven miles in any direction and on a walking route and the Landlord just couldn't be bothered!

A warm welcome and superb food can be found here at the Kirkstyle Inn. A menu of favourites and daily specials on the blackboard ensure there is something for everyone and the added bonus of a drive through beautiful countryside combine to make this a must when you're in the area. David & Sue B.

Decided to call in for lunch one day as we had read the reviews. We both had the sausages which were lovely but there wasn't a very large portion of mash to go with it which was a shame. Only 1 choice of real ale which was priced reasonably but £1.40 for a pint of orange squash was a bit... More
