Stayed at the Bateman Arms on Monday 22nd June. Chose the Bateman arms due to the locality of my meeting the following morning. I arrived at around 4pm and thought I would check in but the door was locked. It said on my booking form that check in was Fromm 12.00 onwards, but I was informed that it was actually... More

Friends had eaten here previously and coaxed us away from our midweek pasta for a quick bite out. What a truly great find. Lovely, friendly FUNNY service, affordable menu with ample vegetarian options. We all ate extremely well and vow to return. Even though we hope they continue to impress, the down side may be not getting a table! Definitely... More

Was looking for a decent place to stay for 1 night close to Kington. This pub with rooms had very good reviews so we opted to stay. Highly recommend the family room with its 2 fantastic solid oak double beds. Slept really well. Staff in the pub and restaurant are very welcoming and helpful. Highly recommend the prawn curry which... More

A lovely old pub in beautiful surroundings. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming - which created a lovely atmosphere. We had a an evening meal which was superb! Gorgeous food and generous portions - only downside was that we didn't have room for pudding! Breakfast was lovely, cooked fresh to order, plus delicious local yoghurt and fresh fruit.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with husband and dog. Very welcoming and helpful owners. Lovely breakfasts with local produce. We ate here on all three evenings and couldn't fault it. Varied menu, beautifully cooked and presented. Had a car problem and were directed to a very helpful garage in Kingsland (thank you, Darren!) who told us it was safe to... More

We arrived at the Bateman arms as a group of six very wet and tired cyclists. We were quickly taken to our rooms, an offer of drying our wet kit was made and a bottle of pasteurised milk offered to supplement the tea / coffee making facilities in the room by a very friendly member of staff. The rooms were... More

Great location for exploring the local area. The owners and staff could not have been more helpful & friendly. The dinner menu is excellent quality, uses local produce and is fantastic value for money. We had a brief chat with the chef and he obviously has a passion for food and loves his job. A lovely breakfast too set us... More

I stayed at the Bateman arms on business. The welcome was more than accommodating, as we turned up very late and the staff are very friendly. The menu looks basic but the food is fantastic, a real credit. My room had everything I needed including free wifi and the little touches such as fresh milk made all the difference. I... More
