If there was a rating higher than 5 then The White Bull at Alston would merit it. Just back from lunch on a Travelzoo deal, so value for money was excellent. But we will be going back soon even if no deals available. The food was superb, the service both friendly and efficient, the ambience just right for pub lunch.... More

Nipped in on Good Friday and had a delicious dinner. Dad in law is coeliac and reacts very badly to any trace of gluten. We were offered a wide range of options and he was delighted with the lamb shank. Attentive service from the front of house team and once again a delicious meal. Many thanks.

Having recently moved to the area, we decided to walk down to the new local for lunch; we were not disappointed! We were immediately greeted on entry and shown to a table. The decor was a mix of modern elegant and country pub: a real fire and pictures of old Longridge on the wall. The extensive menu was supplemented by... More

Can not fault our evening. Staff friendly and very efficient. The young man who took our order was very helpful and the chef was able to adjust one of our main... More

I went to the white Bull with my wife in February. It was very busy but the staff were excellent and kept us informed of table availability. I had the steak (blue) which was cooked to perfection and my wife had the chicken which was extremely tasty. The proprietor, Alex, came over to talk to us on a couple of... More

I phoned and told them the problem and they said that if we could make it by 2:10pm we would be fine. We eventually made... More

My daughter booked for mothering Sunday for both Mum & mother-in-law. Food was nice but was only just warm. Service good & staff friendly. Only disappointment was when she booked she was asked how many mothers was going to be there as they would get a gift only to be told they had run out... Maybe only a cupcake but... More

My friends and I had intended going elsewhere last weekend but finding it full we were directed to the White Bull at Alston. Thank goodness we were! On arrival at a roadside inn, nicely kept, this didn't prepare you for such a warm and friendly atmosphere once inside. Also a very good styling and upkeep of decor and furnishings -... More
