"Arrive as a guest and leave as a friend." - Jason and Alison welcome you to the Ravensworth Hotel, where excellent home cooked local food, cleanliness and excellent levels of service are afforded to you, our guests. We strive to ensure you feel the Ravensworth is an extension of your home and many of our guests refer to us as their "home from home". All of our bedrooms are furnished to a very high standard, equipped with teletext television, trouser press, hairdryer, umbrella, mints, toiletries and hospitality tray. Superb fell views are experienced from most rooms. Relax in our wonderful lounge where you will find the open fire and bowl of fresh fruit, whilst reading a book or magazine and enjoying a drink of your choosing.
We are extremely passionate about the food that we purchase and serve. All meat is supplied by local suppliers and is locally reared. Our free range eggs and milk are delivered directly to us from a local farm.
Tomatoes are organic and bought on the vine to ensure the maximum flavour and freshness. Mushrooms are organic where possible.
All of our sausage and bacon is grilled to ensure a healthy slant. Bacon is cut thicker than usual to enjoy a ‘traditional’ rasher.
For the vegetarians amongst us, all of our tomatoes are grilled on a separate grill to ensure there is no contact with meat at any stage.
Mushrooms are cooked in their own pan in a little water to ensure maximum flavour and no fat is used anywhere, as in all of our cooking.Eggs are fried in a ‘Tefal non-stick’ frying pan to ensure no oil is used to ensure that what you taste is ‘the egg’.
Please note: We can provide soya milk and various soya products for our guests if we are notified in advance. Most diets can be catered for. Again, prior notification is most appreciated to ensure sufficient time to purchase the supplies.
