Lovely cosy B&B

alexandra h, Hartlepool, United Kingdom
Booked a 5 course taster menu meal which I cannot fault. Beautiful food and wine. Stayed the night in a twin room, very clean, beautifully kept, great range of tea and coffee facilities (also fresh fruit!). Really comfortable beds and good power shower. Attended an event at the observatory which was very informative led by the really knowledgable Roy. A great time, would recommend!

Excellent Place to Stay

Greecophile, Yorkshire, England
We last visited 2 years ago and while the general stay was very good there were a few criticisms of the reception area and the boxes piled in it as well as other details. This time we arrived to see the refurbishments including reception ( the floor covering is a bit institutional) and they have made such a difference. The whole place is lovely now and we intend to visit in Summer time when we can take more advantage of the outside space. Our room was lovely and spacious and the food at Dinner was superb. The wine is a little pricey for the offering but we did enjoy what we chose. Breakfast was also very good as usual. All staff are friendly and helpful.

one of the best overnighter

Ray c, Sunderland, United Kingdom
we booked a lodge room with a great dinner bed and breakfast deal and were amazed at the size of the room and bathroom. this place is quality. we had a few drinks in the bar which was cosy and ewelcoming near the fire and the staff were excellent. the evening meal was quality. i love beef cheeks and these were the best i have had. did not want the meal to end. my wife had the hake fish which was also excellent. top marks for the meal and for the breakfast next morning. the room was warm huge and the bed large and comfy. plenty of tea/coffee and fresh fruit. nice touch. wish the weather had been ice enough to use the outside tables on the balcony but in feb it was a bit damp. there was an issue with the water supopply being lost to the whole village but this was out of the hotels control but they provided bottled wate and kept eveyone informed. well done. would love to stay here in the summer with my family(would need 3 rooms) but difficult to book and cost will not be the same as the deal we had.

2 night stay with taster menu

_mjivey, Perth and Kinross, United Kingdom
A very pleasant break with wonderful food. We are both foodies and are always looking for new gastronomic treats. The taster menu did not disappoint. Every course was a delight. The flavours were so well balanced. The portions were perfectly adequate. Not novel cuisine but not stingy. After 8 courses we were full but not stuffed. Breakfast was very pleasant sitting in the conservatory. The breakfast menu was varied not just the full cooked variety. The bedrooms were in the modern extension so not oldy Worldy but clean spacious warm and the bed very comfy. We did not manage to visit the observatory which the bedrooms overlooked as the Wednesday guided visit at 8pm would have interupted our meal. We will be back to visit again. Wark itself is a very small rural agricultural village but it's local produce features in the hotel menu. The local charcuterie (chorizo) was especially good as it features in the menu. The bar area was in the old part of the hotel and was small cosy and characterful with Farrow and ball type tasteful subdued colors with a lovely warm stove on all day. The hotel cat was always present and had his own barstool. Dogs were also welcome in the bar area and front conservatory. The cat did not seem to object! Altogether a very special place. Go!


kevin l,
An excellent restaurant for both traveller and locals. Friendly family atmosphere the bedrooms in which I have not slept are spacious warm and comfortable according to those in have talked to. Greatest plus side to this place is it is 100%dog friendly. They even supply bedding and 1st class food for your perfect friend. So if you wish to go walking around Hadrons wall with your best friend and the wife get on the phone and book now. It's 19 mile south of Northumberland national park what more do you want? Hope to see you round the village some time this year. My name is Kevin ask in post office where I live call in for a cuppa and a chat xxx
