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

Food was excellent, lovely views, cosy inside and dog's welcome. Initially seeing this place from outside I wasn't sure what to expect, however the staff and local's that were in the pub were very friendly and the food was fresh and tasty and certainly filling.

We were on our way to a hotel in the lakes but stopped off at Brampton and I found this by chance on the internet. It had great reviews so thought we would call in. It was in the middle of no where and it was like the yellow brick road to find. It's was a very welcoming pub and... More
