Lovely accommodation and food - privacy issue with bathroom


LadyBDerbyshire, Derbyshire
My husband and I booked this the day before we travelled so we got a very reasonable deal but we booked through another website. The room was spacious, comfortable bed, TV, complimentary tea and coffee making facilities and biscuits. Ample storage space for clothes. As described- refurbished rooms and bathrooms. We stayed in room 7 which was above the hotel front entrance. The bathroom was spacious with a walk in shower, washbasin and toilet. It looked very luxurious but the only problem was the lack of a blind or covering to the bathroom window. It was low and faced directly opposite to the toilet and happened to be where you would dry yourself. There is a coating on the window which should obscure you from view but I am afraid it doesn't ! I felt very vulnerable as this window faced onto the main road directly opposite the local shop and post office. The next morning I asked my husband to turn on the bathroom light and stand in front of the window. I COULD see him and the colour of his clothes. So I am afraid that I am sure that anyone looking up would see whether someone was naked or not. For me it was a big negative as I value my privacy and I felt very vulnerable. I have informed the hotel and also am writing this so that the hotel will take steps to resolve this for possible future guests. If this issue is resolved then we would return. Staff friendly and helpful. Ideally situated for visiting Hadrian's wall. I would have given a 5 rating if there was no issue regarding lack of privacy in the bathroom.

We arrived at 12:30pm and got checked in straight away. The room was very clean and spacious with a huge bed and had a lovely modern bathroom! We had an evening meal in the restaurant which was delicious! I would definitely recommend the steak pie Thanks for a lovely stay!

Sunday Lunch at the Black Bull in Wark


Packer_0ne, Toon
My wife and I had been visiting family in the Wark area. We decided to have lunch before returning home and opted for the Black Bull. This was our first visit despite driving through the village many times passing it as we went. We had not booked in advance. The ambience was instantaneous and a warm welcome from the serving staff. A table was found for us immediately and we were seated in a very comfortable dining room. The menu contained a few very pleasant surprises. A Guinea Fowl Terrine with orange was offered as a starter, I have never seen this before on any menu. It was spectacular! The mains were quite traditional meats apart from a braised Lamb Shank and most unusually an 18 hour cooked Featherblade steak. Coward that I am I chose the roast sirloin which was served pink to red and was magnificent. The next time, having seen it, I'll be having the Featherblade! The staff are very friendly and nothing seemed to be much trouble. Over the hour or so we were there the restaurant filled up, so booking would be advisable.

The Black Bull Hotel & Country Kitchen replied: Thank you for taking the time to write us such a lovely review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your meal with us and will pass on your comments to our team. We look forward to welcoming you to the Black Bull again in the future where you can try some of our other dishes and perhaps have room for one of our chefs home made desserts.
