This was our first visit to The Alston but definitely won’t be our last. Lovely friendly service and excellent food. Can’t wait for our next trip!
Very good food. Certainly a cut above most pub food. Good atmosphere and friendly service. It is nice to visit a pub which is busy and thriving. Also when the proprietor takes time to speak to his customers and ask how their meal is in a genuine way makes you feel that he really wants you to have a good experience. I strongly recommend that you visit the Alston.
Lovely food good value for money good service. We both had soup if he day and a fish dish that was catch of the day and then finished with ice cream all very nice
Alway made welcome food very nice very friendly atmosphere nothing to much trouble . . . . . . . . . . . .
Always good food. Table was booked for 7pm on a Friday night, so I was a bit disappointed to see (and hear!) tired kids running and screaming about. I know this is down to the parents and not the staff at The Alston but it detracted from the nice dining experience. The staff are great though and one member of staff tried to shepherd the kids into one area and give them some colouring to do. Nice effort.....will always keep going though because the food is good and the staff are great.
The food was gorgeous (especially the burgers!), the service was friendly, but they had no idea we were coming. Showed them confirmation of our online booking and were shown to a table without a fuss. Nice place to go.
A lovely welcome by Alex. Staff very attentive We all enjoyed our meal my 97yr old mum who had wanted good fish and chips for ages and got them
Good food. The selection on the menu was excellent. Did not rush us to eat our food and we had Very pleasant service. Clean and warm inside really welcoming
Unassuming pub restaurant with a welcoming feel. We were seated quickly and drinks orders taken. Menu is fair and food orders were a bit slow to arrive. Food was hot and tasty. Cappuccino needs work. All in all though a very pleasant luncheon.
Excellent service, good quality food and a great selection of beers. Very quiet, we were the only two people in the restaurant all night (Wednesday). The discount for online booking was a bonus.
