The food, service and atmosphere was perfect. We enjoyed the log fire, the fine wines and range of beers.

We had the taster menu for the second time last night - the previous occasion being over a year ago which we thoroughly enjoyed. Every dish was different to the previous time and every one was of exceptional quality in terms of the quality and combination of ingredients, and the quality of the cooking. Service was of a very high... More

Yes, The Battlesteads has much going for it -- green credentials, a beautiful exterior, good location for exploring the county ... but its restaurant is a serious let-down. They need either to hire a new chef, or give the present one a kick up the backside. What's... More

We've been here a couple of times for drop-in coffee which is always excellent. Sometimes we come for a pudding and a pint and given that all the puddings are awesome, this is always a success. Tonight I've had a pint from a local brewery, Allendale pennine and it's my new favourite.
