Dark Sky Stay & Gaze Award


Whatever your taste buds delight in, spoil them rotten at Battlesteads pub, hotel and restaurant in Wark, near Hexham.

Most of the food is either grown on site in the two acre gardens and two polytunnels or sourced from artisan producers within 25 miles of the hotel. And it’s all cooked to order by head chef Eddie Shilton and his team.

Originally built as a farmstead in 1747, Battlesteads is now the greenest hotel in Northumberland with multi-award winning eco credentials. Interested guests can enjoy a tour of the green installations, while others simply enjoy the guilt-free pleasure of great food, locally-brewed beer, organic and biodynamic wines and comfy accommodation – all without the chemicals!

Battlesteads offers three options for an eating experience – a more relaxed affair in the bar area; views of the garden and some wildlife-spotting from the conservatory; or a more formal, intimate experience in the main restaurant with its dark wood furnishings and low lighting.

There is ample parking on site and secure storage for cycles.

Excellent sunday lunch with a family party

bduggan2017, Northumberland, United Kingdom
Eight of us had an excellent meal at The Battlesteads. The service, food, price and suroundings were 1st class. We all love the big choice of roast meats and selection of veg at the carvery. There is a good choice of delicious and beautifully presented sweets. The new extension is beautifully furnished and has a warm inviting feel.

exorbitant prices

Darren B, Bellingham, null, United Kingdom
went here for lunch bought two very overpriced drinks, took a look at the menu and left. the prices are way over the top the new exension is lovely bt the cost is certainly refected in the prices and how about some staff who were born in this country let alone northumberland

Food on the 8 course taster menu was excellent

although we dined here with a discount voucher from travelzoo we would still reccomend the restaurant at the full prices.

Sunday lunch

Food was outstanding. Lovely place. Carvery with beef cooked at different rarities. Just a lovely lunch. No complaints

A pleasant Sunday lunch

Val M, Rothbury, United Kingdom
Out last visit was about three years ago. Since then the building has been creatively extended giving an extra dining area. We had booked ahead and were shown to a table but after sitting unattended for a while we had to ask for a menu. There are various Sunday lunch pricing options for one, two or three courses. The starter and pudding are brought by waitress but the main course is a carvery. The meat and wide choice of vegetables was very good. Apart from the initial hiccup regarding the menu, the staff were helpful and efficient.
