The carvery this Sunday was one of our best. Two beefs to choose from, well done or medium rare. Lamb or pork are on offer as well.The vegetables are all locally sourced and not over cooked. We had a main and a pudding. One could have a starter and a main or all three. Val has had better sticky toffee... More

We've just experienced the 8 course tasting menu and were in awe of the delicious treats served up. Lots of fresh local produce used and really creative ideas which tasted amazing. The staff are very well trained and knowledgable about everything they are serving you and even suggest the right wine to accompany each course. You think that portions are... More

Visited the restaurant whilst on vacation. Selected to dine in the large conservatory where the combination of natural light and background music enhanced the fine dining experience. The menu is extensive and although the a la carte menu provided temptation we took the option of three courses selected on the chefs menu. Combined with excellent service each course was delicious...

Just returned after 3 days at this unique place. We celebrated our wedding anniversary there. A warm welcome, attentive staff, fabulous food, clean pleasant room - what more can be said! The gardens including the Kitchen garden area are all well worth the visit alone! The lady gardener has really pulled together a wonderful show.

Disappointing, is the best I can say about this place. We were looking for an easy meal at the end of a days sightseeing around Hadrian's wall area and had been told this place was good. Started well when welcomed by two pleasant young barmaid/waitresses, one of whom was new and learning on the job. Both were, I think, East... More

We dined here on a Saturday evening using a voucher which meant we got the 7 course tasting menu for half price. An excellent deal if ever there was one. The food was fabulous, and each course was introduced by the waitress who explained where the ingredients had come from. Most of the vegetables and the garnishes came from the... More

Our family of twelve, met at the Battlesteads Hotel to-day, for Sunday lunch. It was an excellent meal, and the carvery was the best that we have found for a very long time. There was a good choice of roast meat, a great variety of vegetables and delicious puddings. The service was very good and we were able to enjoy... More

We had dinner at the Battlesteads. It's a proper old country house in the middle of the little village of Wark. The food was lovely, the service was good, though we got served by at least 4 different servers over our dinner which was a bit odd.

We were a big party, but they weren't phased, choice of menu excellent, quality of food excellent, service excellent, beer real and again excellent. Hey if you fancy a trip to Wark this is where you eat drink and be merry. They even have rooms so you can stop over.
