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.

A brilliant find

Went for an evening meal with family. Bowled over by the great service and truly wonderful food. The wine exceptional and served at the right temperature. A very memorable night

Never been let down with a meal or service here.

We arrived for a lunch and were close to the end of the lunchtime service. We were met by friendly staff and felt very welcome. We have been many times before and have never had cause to complain. The staff are very professional and friendly. The food is always excellent and presented so well and the restaurant is situated in the most beautiful surroundings. The well stocked, walled garden and the bird feeders make it quite unique. It is the most wonderful place and we will be back soon.

Lovely carvery

Good service, great quality delicious meats, the beef was gorgeous cooked medium, lovely fresh vegetables to accompany. I had a red currant meringue to finish and it was lovely.

Excellent taster menu

Eight courses - each a delight. Reasonably priced and I strongly suggest you go with the somelier's choice of wines at £25. The waiting staff were extremely professional, attentive and charming. We both really enjoyed the meal and would recommend for a special occasion

Will never return!!!

Anne H,
We ordered drinks to take to our table, a real ale that wasn't the best but drinkable.... The Pepsi tasted like Tesco value coke in a Pepsi glass.... We ordered two baked goats cheese with grape starters, as I have an allergy to chilli, I couldn't have grapes, as they'd pre-prepared the grapes by cutting them in half and adding chilli, which made the starter a bit over strong and dry... My partner's starter was nice though.... Next, came the main course.... We both ordered rib eye steak, one medium, with Caesar salad (minus the anchovies) and parmesan fries and one rare, with mushrooms, tomato, onion rings and chips.... When the waitress arrived with the first plate, she didn't know if it was rare or medium and had to go back to the kitchen for confirmation... When it arrived,the medium steak was exactly as it should be.. the salad contained anchovies, and so needed to be returned... The rare steak was more fat and gristle than steak and although a ribeye does often have a line of fat running through, it is still palatable... This one needed to be returned. The next steak that arrived was more cooked than the medium one, with not a hint of pink running through the entire steak, but at least it was edible, though not what we had ordered! Restaurants that offer steak really do need to make sure their chefs know the difference between rare and medium cooked steak... And the poor confused waitresses need to receive more clear instructions on what each plate consists of, or what it should consist of, so they can present the correct food to their customers... Not impressed!!!
