Amazing, from start to finish. Soufflé, soup, beetroot and goat’s cheese Bon bons and much more. The sweet was delightful- brandy snap, with petite cubes of rhubarb and cream. That’s saying something as I very rarely eat a sweet dish. Loved it and would highly recommend. Service excellent too.
We booked for a three night break which included the 8 course taster menu and chose to stay in one of the lodges. What lovely, spacious accomodation for really relaxing in and the bathroom was enormous. We did have trouble trying to get the towel rail to heat up, but next morning the cleaner managed to get it working for us. The spa bath was a treat, though I had to keep my heel on the plug to hold it down. Plenty of towels and toiletries for our use and the whole lodge was very clean. Luckily we had good weather for our stay and spent one morning soaking up the sun on the decking. We were fascinated by the revolving solar panel display in the back car park, but never managed to catch it in motion! I listened out for the noisy dogs which had so disturbed one of the reviewers, but could only hear the occasional bark when using the bathroom & with that door closed nothing was audible. The dining room and conservatory were both lovely areas for dining, with well spaced tables. Our only complaint was the "wailing" music at every meal; not conducive to creating a pleasant dining atmosphere! The eight course tasting menu was really very good, with the portions just the right size and some interesting flavours to be sampled. We particularly liked the wild mushroom soup and the rack of lamb plate. Full by the last course! The menu for the other two evenings was more difficult to assess, but the twice baked cheese souffle was excellent and so were the tempura prawns, with the chef kindly adding some extra pink ginger for me. My main course of seafood tagliatelle had plenty of fish & prawns in a rich sauce. Main courses had limited choices and two were too spicy for me to choose, being Cajun chicken and a curry. My husband's steak was cooked exactly as ordered, but came with no veg other than two large fried onion rings and fantastic chips. I just ended up with fish and chips and that was satisfyingly sufficient. Breakfasts were fine and, given that a party of twelve were at a nearby table, it didn't prevent ours arriving reasonably quickly. Twice I had scrambled egg and smoked salmon...beautifully cooked eggs. My husband had the full breakfast each day and thoroughly enjoyed his plateful. The toast was thin supermarket bread and usually cold, though our large main meal plates were always piping hot. The multi tasking staff were most helpful, friendly and worked very hard to keep us all well fed and happy. Staffing seems to be a problem everywhere, but here they made us feel very welcome. Thank you to Katie [who always seemed to be on duty!] and the rest of the team.…
A welcoming Friendly check inn, A nice small clean single room good shower and nice tea tray with lovey biscuits . The food in the resultant was exceptional lovely flavours a great meal. The breakfast could have been better for me it was not very warm and undercooked bacon.
Just returned from this wonderful hotel everything is as described. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. We stayed in a lodge which was very nice. Wark is a lovely little village. Very 🐶 friendly which is exactly what we want. We will definitely be back soon.
Battlesteads Inn is a hidden gem on/off the Hadrian’s Wall path. The accommodations, dining and transportation services were superior. Mike more than took care of getting us to and from the Inn. Well worth finding.
