Overview

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.

Fabulous food and service!


Janine L,
We've been coming to the northeast for years and passed Battlesteads many times so when there was a 5-course taster offer on Itison we decided to give it a try. The booking was made via email and confirmation received the next day. The first thing you have to remember is the clue is in the wording - it's a 'taster' menu so you know you are not going to get big portions. At the restaurant I opted to add the wine pairing choices for myself at an additional charge. Details of the courses were given to you and you were asked about allergies etc. The food was fabulous, well presented and fully explained by the staff. Each coursec did leave you wanting more, which is what a taster menu is all about, and each course had a wine which complimented it perfectly I thought, and made you appreciate the complexities of wine in general. The staff were polite, informative and attentive, and the meal was served in a leisurely un-rushed manner with an acceptable amount of time between courses. All in all a fabulous experience, the 8-course taster menu might have filled up my partner a little more but we were still talking about the food the next day.

Lunch


Bobemma,
Called for Lunch on a Monday the pensioners three course lunch excellent in quality and price. (I think it is only available on a Monday) Sensible size portions for us ‘oldies’. Could not fault the food or the service from staff. The general menu had a varied choice to suit most requirement - old world charm about the place. Large ‘disabled toilet’ available. Plenty of off street parking.

Extremely poor


Ja50ny0ung, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We booked a Itson voucher for their tasting menu, we also added the wine flight, we were all extremely disappointed, the night proved to be very expensive even after paying up front for the voucher, the first course mushroom and truffle soup resembled something from a bush tucker trial! The second was strange too, beetroot numerous ways was a cross between a starter and a desert! It did look nice. Third, salmon was ok nothing to get excited about, main course lamb chop and shepherds pie was ok but tiny, the desert was nice, but I added ice creams for the kids which I thought were day light robbery, two very small scoops for £4.00!!! We will not be rushing back!
