Welcome to The Kirkstyle Inn and Sportsman's Rest

A pub with a history and a new lease of life. Home to the locals and a tribute to birdlife. A treat for all visitors two legs or four.  You’ll feel the warm welcome as you come through the door.

The Old Rectory

The Old Rectory is our stunning six bedroom holiday home that sleeps twelve and is right next door.  Just click the ‘Find Out More’ button below to take a look.

So much attention to detail across every aspect of the restaurant and room. Friendly staff and a wonderful setting. Lovely seasonal food with a great wine list. Will definitely return!

Excellent service, accommodation and food. We wish that we could have stayed longer, but we’ll be back…….unless this review increases business too much and then there will be no more space.


Always a good experience at the Kirkstyle. We had a traditional roast lunch following pre-starters and starters, ending with crème brûlée. Flavours are fantastic, a real taste sensation. Staff friendly and attentive, as always. Thanks for finding us a comfy spot for our pooch – very much appreciated.

“Our second visit – well worth a 40 minute drive from Penrith. The lamb was stupendous and as for the desserts – especially the crème brûlée – wonderful. Our party also ended up ordering soap online to match the Kirkstyle loos!”

“Visited a couple of times now mainly for a quick bite but had a long, leisurely lunch this time and so glad we did. Food is outstanding and staff/service is spot on. Well worth every penny! Will always call in when in the area”
