“excellent quality and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

During an overnight stay found Alston House to be a very comfortable, welcoming restaurant. Quality of food and service was excellent and very good value. Will visit again ... soon I hope. Liked the sofas in the bar very comfortable for a pre dinner drink

“Lovely menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Enjoyed another good meal here whilst staying in the area. The Alston House restaurant has a contemporary area and a varied menu with a 2 course deal or a la carte. Very busy place, open most evenings, but closed on Monday evenings.

“Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Brilliant.
Menu offered a wide selection of dishes. As much fresh produce as possible is used. Portions were large so no room for dessert, unfortunately. It was very tasty.

“Beautiful find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Having arrived late on a Sunday evening, dressed in our cycling attire (C2C), we wandered around Alston, looking for a meal.
Alston House, a beautiful Georgian period building, looked a bit over our budget.
It was buzzing, very busy & a wonderful atmosphere. Tastefully decorated & no expense spared.
We were half an hour late for the final orders, but, because they had been busy, they accommodated us.
Wow...beautiful food, outstanding & friendly service...2 courses for £9.95!!!!!!!
Would highly recommend this beauty to everyone.
