Out last visit was about three years ago. Since then the building has been creatively extended giving an extra dining area. We had booked ahead and were shown to a table but after sitting unattended for a while we had to ask for a menu. There are various Sunday lunch pricing options for one, two or three courses. The starter... More

We arrived at The Battlesteads, unfortunately, we didn't receive the warm welcome, as stated in their website. It was abrupt and impersonal. The room was well equipped, ironing board, iron, tissues, fresh fruit, tea, coffee and homemade biscuits. However, the bed was small for a double, and creaked. We were in bedroom 8. We were abruptly woken up at approximately... More

I went today after a recommendation. We waited a while to be greeted and then it wasn't a friendly welcome. Service was slow and waitress didn't know her menu.

Called in for lunch after a morning site seeing. Menu very limited for vegetarians. Whilst looking at the menu the chef walked through the bar. He smelt so strongly of cigarettes smoke we decided not to stay for our meal. The rear door into the garden was also littered with cigarette ends. Very disappointed.

We visited here for a meal for a friends birthday. Couldn't fault the service and the food was amazing, the only sting in the tail was the wine, which costs £6.99 to buy from any wine merchants and is priced at £21 a bottle here. Our own fault I guess for not looking at the wine list before ordering but... More
