Battlesteads Hotel in Wark to be included in Great British Cookbook

Popped in for lunch to Wark's great hotel and restaurant last week and talked to Eddie the star chef over lunch. Delighted to see that the hotel is getting further recognition - this time in the Great British Cookbook: the book takes readers on a culinary journey around 10 regions, featuring recipes from some of the UK’s finest chefs en route - Rick Stein and Nigella Lawson among them - and 200 top pubs, guest houses, hotels, Michelin Star and AA Rosette restaurants.
Battlesteads, a stone-build former farmhouse in Wark on Tyne, near Hexham, has been signalled out for one of its signature dishes, braised beef cheeks, which has been included amongst the recipes.
