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.

Dog friendly in the bar

Burtonram, Burton upon Trent, United Kingdom
Always good to find a Dog Friendly pub which serves great food too! Called in after a long walk for a drink and asked about bringing in the dog for a meal on another day. As they said it was ok in the bar and smaller lounge/restaurant area (not the main restaurant), we booked for the following night. So glad we did, as the food was excellent. As well as traditional fare, the menu is very cosmopolitan and covers a number of countries including Moroccan and Mexican. The staff were very nice and we both enjoyed a great meal.

Lovely Easter Sunday carvery

Emma L,
Great location on our way back from kielder. Well presented restaurant and bar with great carvery. The beef was perfectly done. Although it was raining the garden was lovely and would be great on a sunny day. Looking forward to coming back.

Bar Food-poor

John H, Ponteland
Called for lunch earlier in week. Staff ok but food very poor. Had gammon steak,it was 6mm thick and full of gristle,fried egg with it was overcooked When I complained I was told that is what you get with gammon steak,gristle and an overcooked egg!- Partner had the breaded scampi just ok. Gone back in quality from 6months ago.

Locally sourced food

I was impressed by the way that the chef had sourced food locally and made such delicious dishes from it.

Very nice.

Lovely food, however it is pricy.(£5.20 a pint too) A beautiful hotel set in gorgeous surroundings. They could work on the staff being more welcoming but we have still enjoyed our stay.
