Best meal in a long time and... More

Plenty of walking in the area to either develop an appetite or walk a full stomach off. We went for lunch and the food was fantastic. The pie was made with proper short crust pastry and teamed with the crumble was the perfect winter warmer. The whole family enjoyed their food and would easily recommend this place.

We recently had lunch at this little pub while walking in the area. There was no one else eating which is always a worry, but we were rewarded with a fantastic homestyle meal at a very reasonable price. I had slow cooked lamb shank, which literally fell of the bone served with mash and mint gravy. My husband had a... More

Third pub we tried for a lunch and the first one to welcome dogs. So glad the first two pubs didn't welcome dogs as we'd not have had such an enjoyable meal. Warm welcome from both sides of the bar and we were soon in conversation with them all. Husband chose the pigeon and black pudding pie - in proper... More

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
