On a family visit we were discussing the menu when the chef suggested trying a 'taster' menu of dishes they were developing for the season. It turned out to be an amazing 7 - course meal of exceptional standard including cinnamon pulled-pork, sea bass, slow cooked cow's cheek in a rich jus, homemade desserts and a genuinely local cheeseboard.

I have had lunch here twice with my husband and family and thought it was delightful. Sat in the conservatory looking out at the garden and had very good food both times. The waitresses were friendly and helpful - Reluca, Gina and I'm afraid I don't know the other one's name but they are a credit to the hotel.We had... More

Enjoyed a special meal here with my family whilst on a camping holiday, very attentive staff and good food something a bit special. Only gripe I have is that they charge for tap water, the waitress brought a bottle to our table without us ordering it and later found we had been charged, not a huge amount but still it... More

It was a real pleasure to eat here. The food is excellent and good value for money. I would not hesitate to recommend it. Its much more than a pub, the food is of the highest quality, the beer is good and the service is excellent.

We decided to go to this pub after reading the impressive menu on their website. Unfortunately most of the food on the menu was not actually available on the day. Most of the vegetarian options which was in fact the reason we chose this place were not available. The one which was available was sad to say the least :... More

Because of a voucher I had won for two to enjoy the carvery Sunday lunch, two friends and I came to the Battlesteads today. We were very impressed by the quality of the choices in the menu, the ambience, the quiet, polite and friendly efficiency of the staff. There was a choice of rare or well done beef, pork or... More

Dropped in for a meal on a trip to the north. Found it by accident and its a Hotel, pub and restaurant. Picturesque views, locally sourced food (think of foodie delight). Small but well considered menus and basic wine list. Good value, prompt service from attentive staff. Well worth a visit if you want to step away from pub food... More

We have eaten in the Battlesteads' restaurant before and been impressed. So when the Slee/Murray clan wanted a get together for Raymond's 70th birthday, we kind of had a clue that the team at The Battlesteads would not let us down. It's odd to be reviewing a buffet for 30 on TripAdvisor, but the spread they put on was so... More

Having put 30 cycled miles behind us after leaving Kielder this pub was a great stopping point on our way to Hedon on the Wall. With our support unit going on ahead to plan our stop the pub was well prepared for our arrival and the pleasant staff quickly took our orders for food and drinks in the garden. Food... More
