We visited the kirkstyle inn whilst staying in the area on our honeymoon, we had got the train from alston to Lintley and walked the distance to the pub. Well worth the walk, beautiful surrounding area, friendly locals and lovely meal in the sunshine. We both had steak and have to say was excellent! Reasonably priced and cooked to perfection!... More

My first visit to the area (stunning!) and therefore my first visit to the Kirkstyle Inn. Oh dear! The cleanliness of the restaurant is awful. Apart from the mould spores all over the ceiling and walls, the dust and grime on the carpets and window ledges is unforgivable. We had booked for a large party as part of a family... More

Having dined well here 18 months ago on our last visit to this area, we were anxious to return. We were just as pleased again and had two excellent meals there this time around. Service was friendly and informal. The chef and barkeep are the owners. We even ran into people that we had met elsewhere earlier that day. Reservations... More

Although it looks like a down at heel pub and is clearly a local hostelry the food is excellent. They specialise in local produce, particularly sausages and mustard and this makes it stand out from other places. The staff were friendly and welcoming.

We had a large family meal here a few nights ago. The staff were great and the food was lovely. All home cooked and lots of choice even for vegetarians and all portions a very good size. Even though there were so many of us the meals arrived in good time and we had a great evening. Thanks

The Kirkstyle had a fantastic range of food, expertly cooked. It was easily the best place that we ate at during our week long trip along Hadrian's Wall, and one of the few that offered local produce. Prices were also very good. It is completely of the main road, but not difficult to get to or find and it's in... More

The welcome we received here was great; staff could not do enough to help us. The food was tasty and served in nice surroundings. I wish we lived nearer.

A local pub, friendly locals so be prepared to join in with the chatting going on at the bar. Very much a country atmosphere. Visited as we had read about the choice locally made sausage.The quality of the food was excellent, well worth a visit.
