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.

Lovely Sunday Lunch

Clarey1971_12, Newcastle, United Kingdom
Had a fantastic Sunday lunch here, there is a carvery on a Sunday with a lovely range of meats and vegetables, with an all you can eat feel. The service was really good and the other menu choices were great too. Very nice decor we were in the conservatory which although it was very cold outside was lovely and toasty inside. Very enjoyable visit

Excellent food and good value!

Lunch stop-off with baby in tow. The building is lovely with a large sunny conservatory, the staff were extremely friendly, and the food was really good - both better value and more ambitious than we were expecting! The whisky marmalade bread and butter pudding is as good as everyone says it is. Also v good baby change facilities.

Really Good

Ate in the restaurant two nights running - first night was the 8 course tasting menu - it was exceptional, especially the mini shepherds pie...Second night was from the a la carte....again, really good. The service is just right too. Excellent wine list, some interesting gins too. Really enjoyed it and would eat here again in a heart beat.

Overnight stop on the way to Scotland with our 3 dogs

Dogs are allowed in the bar and conservatory area and we enjoyed a tasty evening meal and breakfast. They use a lot of ingredients that are grown in their own garden and use local produce as much as they can. If we visit again would like to try their tasting menu and their was a decent selection to choose from. The full English breakfast was very tasty and to be honest I could have eaten it again.

Excellent food with inexpensive wine

Angela E, Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom
Had the eight course taster menu on first night and was excellent. Would recommend all the courses but the stand out would be the beetroot and the lamb main course. All four of use enjoyed it so much we ate there on our second night. Again food excellent and not expensive.
