Lovely mother’s day meal and a surprise gift for the mums, this mum is feeling very spoilt, see you soon 😘
Fabulous food, warm and friendly welcome. Will be visiting again soon.
It’s always absolutely superb. The food is excellent value for money and the staff are great. Alex, Michelle and team will do anything to make the whole dining experience perfect. It’s a great pub, good atmosphere and lovely food. Always our favourite place!
The food was excellent and the service was very warm and welcoming , we had pre booked and shown straight to our table and given a choice of tables, again the food was great.
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.
It was very busy and only two members of staff. They did so well to serve all customers. Service was fantastic and the young girl on was very friendly and attentive. Well done to them! Black pudding fritter were delicious and nachos yummy. My husband loves his mixed grill, I had the king burger. It was huge! But I loved it. If I was to give a criticism some cabbage/chutney type thing came with it but it was floating in a lot of oil, I don’t think that is need maybe a fresh relish instead?? Atmosphere was also great!
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.
If I’m being honest it wasn’t as good as previous times. I thought I would try something different but it back fired. The tart was very undercooked and I sent it back, it came out again, it was better but I feel maybe they should cook the pastry then put the tomatoes on top otherwise the moisture of the tomatoes won’t allow the pastry to cook. Service was very good everyone was smiley. The lady who sorted us out did it very efficiently.
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!
Again another splendid meal. The staff, the service and the food are always top notch. New winter menu, lots of choice, little bit disappointed that the Hoats cheese starter and the scampi are not available on the new menu. Even so once again 10/10.
