Battlesteads Launches Exclusive Menu For Northumberland Restaurant Week

As winner of the Your Northumberland Guide Best Sunday Lunch award in April 2012, it seems fitting that Battlesteads pub, hotel and restaurant in Wark, near Hexham, should be among the first establishments to get behind the inaugural Northumberland Restaurant Week, taking place 18th to 24th March 2013.

Battlesteads has created a special menu for the occasion, which will be available every evening during the week and must be pre-booked. Diners can select from two and three course options and the menu contains lots of seasonal Northumbrian produce, plus interesting and unusual ingredients grown in the Battlesteads polytunnels and gardens to complement the dishes.

Battlesteads owner Richard Slade commented: “We’ve compiled a delicious and varied menu which combines the very best that Northumberland has to offer – locally sourced wild rabbit, lamb, sustainable fish and artisan cheeses, and not forgetting our very own home grown vegetables, herbs and salads.”

The special menu includes a welcome cocktail based on Fentiman’s Victorian Lemonade and wine lovers can enjoy a special wine matching package with their meal for just £15 per person. The wines will be from Battlesteads’ award-winning list of over 25 biodynamic, Fairtrade and eco varieties.

Customers wishing to ‘dine and recline’ during restaurant week can book a room at Battlesteads for the discounted price of £125 per room per night to include the three course menu and breakfast the following morning. This is based on two people sharing and is reduced from £160 per room per night. Subject to availability.

Breakfast is a traditional Northumbrian platter with homemade black pudding and sausages from Wark Village Butchers.

Richard continued: “We’re delighted that Your Northumberland Guide has taken the initiative to create what is going to be a brilliant showcase for the region; an opportunity to promote local suppliers and highlight the talented chefs we have right here on our doorstep.

“Of course, it’s also great for customers! They’ll be spoilt for choice as they’re faced with a wealth of fabulous food offerings at discounted prices in some of the county’s top establishments. What’s not to love?!”
