I love country pubs where you can relax after a long day on the road, and enjoy home cooked food and real ale. This is a good one, the food is quite distinctive in its preparation and presentation, and fantastic quality, washed down with locally brewed Wye Valley ales. My room in the outbuilding was clean and comfortable, though you... More

We had one night at the Bateman Arms on our way back from a trip to Wales, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hospitality was second to none, with lovely friendly but attentive service. We were greeted with a jar of home made shortbread for our room. The rooms are beautifully appointed and very comfortable with all new decor... More

Stayed at the bateman arms with my partner for one night in a double room in a seperate building next to the pub. The room itself was clean and had all the bits and bobs you would need, however it did have a strong smell of damp (due to the age of the building I'm guessing) I had trouble getting... More

We went on a Monday evening for food and were greeted with a warm welcome & a cosy atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and the food... More

This Hotel has been brought back to life as a pleasant village pub serving really good food at reasonable prices. We booked for Sunday Lunch. A great welcome from friendly staff. A small menu but enough for most tastes. Everything was cooked to perfection, fresh and hot and beautifully served. Good beers and house wines. We will certainly be back... More

Our first time at the Bateman Arms and thoroughly enjoyed it. Tracy was very welcoming as was everyone. Evening meal was spot on, exceptional value for money. Rooms were very accommodating and we had no issues at all, and a lovely nights sleep. Breakfast too was excellent. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel either to stay or just to have a... More

We popped in for lunch on Saturday while we were house hunting in the area and we're pleasantly surprised. The dining area was warm and cosy, the staff friendly, the food beautiful and very reasonably priced and the range of beer and cider was great. We are really pleased that this is going to be our local soon and look... More

We enjoy your company as well Adrian. You may be a local and some may say your review is biased. So what, it's much appreciated by us all who work so hard to make Shobdon proud of its local. Thanks. More
