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.

Fantastic meal!

Judith B,
We had the 5 course taster meal which was a delightful surprise with every course perfect. We also had booked the Stargazing experience in the small observatory that has been built at the top of the garden. Unfortunately it was a very cloudy night so most of the time was indoors and starless.

Great celebration

Chalice S, Hexham, United Kingdom
We booked this for mother in laws 70th birthday. They had never been before and we feel it's a great place for a special occasion. They were delighted with everything, from the service to the food. We were allocated a conservatory table. The ambience was fabulous. The food was wonderful and the menu was totally different from 3 months ago when I was last having a celebration meal here. 6 of us never felt rushed even though the place was quietly busy. The menu was difficult to choose from and we all tried different things so obviously something for every taste. Fantastic evening was enjoyed by all. Age range was 16 years '72 years. Thank you very much. We will be again obviously.

Excellent sunday lunch with a family party

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
