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

After reading reviews on tripadvisor we thought we would have a drive out to try for ourselves. We went for the two course Sunday lunch, I picked the lamb which was very disappointing along with the gravy, it didn't have my taste at all, such a shame as the vegetables were delicious especially the roasties. We sat in the conservatory... More

My husband and I recently had dinner here while traveling through the region. The chef is phenomenal. His dishes were innovative, sophisticated, and delicious. He made a effort to confirm our dietary restrictions and preferences before preparing our meals. The service was good and the owners were very friendly and engaging. We ate in the beautiful back gardens.

We have eaten here in the past and have always enjoyed the food but this time it was excellent!!! The crab was delicious and paired nicely with an English sauvignon blanc style white. I had the fish and my partner loved his beef cheek..the portions are not huge but just fill you up nicely. The 3 little desserts were perfect... More

Visited for some lunch with my partner, my food was well presented and nice. Menu could do with some more choices eg fish. Reasonable prices. However I think the restaurant could do with a bit updating I found it quite dull. the pub however was nice and homeley. If I was to visit again I would like to stay in... More

Went to The Battlesteads for my mum's birthday on Saturday 24 May. Went there because we had been there before for a meal and to stay there. No complaints in the past. This time, what can I say. We had rang previously to check about the menu. The information given us was wrong, which we found out about when we... More

Went for lunch with friends on bank holiday Monday 26th May. Nice menu with plenty of choice including a seafood platter to share, served with lovely chunks of fresh bread. Staff were attentive and professional and we were served with a cheerful smile. We had our two dogs with us and were delighted to find water bowls with fresh clean... More
