Pint of beer on a bar

The Kirkstyle Inn

Wonderful views of the South Tyne Valley

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year
Wheelchair access

Slaggyford has no shop or school, but when the South Tynedale Railway, currently being restored, reaches the village it will again have a station and its first trains since 1976. Thankfully, it already has the 18th-century Kirkstyle Inn, named after the stile into the adjacent churchyard and blessed with wonderful views of the river. In winter a log fire heats the bar, where among the real ales are Great Corby ale and a summer brew named after the inn. On the menu are the very popular local sausages with Alston honey mustard as well as classic British pub dishes, like lasagne; steak and ale pie; and cod and chips.
