Good beer, good food, nice staff, friendly locals - what else do you need??!! It was at night so didn't see the view. I had chicken and Haggis pie. Don't like haggis so thought I would live outside my comfort zone. Glad I did, delicious!! Wine was good, not expensive. Cocked up the bill paying, they were nice when we... More

First visit to kirkstyle inn and so glad we visited. We had found whilst looking for places that can accommodate a gluten free diet and this pub did in style. The staff are really friendly and made us feel welcome. I would recommend and happily return.

One of our favourite pubs in the area. Very friendly welcome and the food is excellent quality with a good selection of daily specials. Just off the main road from Alston to Brampton and well worth the detour!

A very warm welcome, delicious home cooked food with vegetarian choices. The ale isn't half bad either! Tucked away past the local church. Definitely will be returning to try the dessert menu

We called into the Kirkstyle a few times in 2015. In June of 2016 we returned. It continues to provide excellent food (easily the best in the area), the staff are very friendly and friendly, and the layout of the bar and dining area is such that you very quickly find yourself chatting to locals or fellow travellers.

On holiday and calls in for a quick lunch, pub looks a bit dowdy and dark . Had tomato soup very tasty - more like a broth and was served with good warm crusty roll .No problems on the food but did'nt feel we were made particularly welcome. If in area again don't think we would call again.
