“The best end of the line !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Hi so glad I can write this review.lyn and I took the alston narrow gauge train to Lintley. We then followed the directions in the brochure to this pub . We are hopefully at the end of the worst spring weather in 50years.our walk did take us longer than we'd expected. But if you get there It is the best little pub in Cumbria . Upon arrival we used the phrase 'hey presto' as that is what it says in the leaflet . Slightly ironic given the walk but what a little gem . We had a lovely couple of hours , just a few customers,gorgeous views , two pints of bitter and a warming spirit for lyn . The hosts were very welcoming . A warm welcome and log fire . The local customers had a decent discussion about current events and a few friendly jibes . Best of all though was the beef sandwiches and CHIPS ! Absolutely the best combination . Excellent . Worried that we were going to miss our return train we were very kindly given a lift back to the station . I cannot recommend this pub highly enough ! Thank you Stephen and lyn

“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

After reading the reviews on here we decided to pay this pub a visit. The meals were delicious and piping hot. We all had something different and all the dishes were good value for money. This place is around 13 miles from where we live but was well worth the effort and we will come again. Warm and friendly atmosphere.

“Great choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Found great reviews here on Trip Advisor so decided to try Kirkstyle Inn as we were staying 10 mins away. We tried the Saturday Steak Night £20 per couple which included the steak and wine. Fantastic value. We went with our friends and their young daughter plus our dog.
We really enjoyed our meals so much that we returned again a fews days later and tried the Fish and Chips which we would also recommend. Great atmosphere and friendly.

“Loverly Meal with Good Friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

This was picked because it was a half way meeting point for ourselves and good friends plus it`s rating on trip advisor. We were not disappointed with our food and very nice atmosphere.
We were greeted by a friendly landlord and nice warm Pub/Resturant. Three of our party had Sunday Roast`s which were very nice.One small thing it would have been nice if the food plates had been warmed. Our other friend had Fish,Chips and Mushy pea`s which was a good portion.Three of the party had sweets which were first rate.
The young waitress was very friendly and helpfully plus onwers and other staff all very friendly.This and the meal made it an enjoyable day with our friends

“Food glorious food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Had two great meals in this fab pub during our stay at Broadmea Barn in Slaggyford. We were a party of 11 friends, all had different meals, and all left clean plates!! Everything was cooked to perfection and soooooo delicious. Such an oasis in a remote part of Cumbria.

The staff were really friendly, the beer was great and the stove was such a bonus during the below freezing temperatures we had that week.
