Places to Eat and Drink in Alston

There is a good selection of places to eat in Alston.

It is always advisable to book in advance with the pubs and restaurant as they have limited space and may not be able to accommodate large groups at short notice – especially in the peak season and at weekends.

During the Covid-19 situation you must pre-book a table to eat/drink in the pubs. Please call well in advance to ensure a time for your group.
