Shortly after the Bateman re-opened under its new ownership 18 months ago, I wrote a rather critical report. Now after several return visits, I can honestly say that this place is getting to be very good indeed. Cooking, service and ambiance are all up to a high standard. Beer choice is good but a bit pricey. Good access - open... More

Just got back from two nights here, very clean room, the food was first class the owners and staff the same (we dined here both nights) We picked this place because of its location close to the Luctonians rugby club (who we played and won on the Saturday) and boy did we fall lucky, had a brilliant Friday night with...

Despite the fact that Hull Ionians beat the mighty Luctonians and you let everyone know about it who didn't want to listen, we still like you. Thankfully as yet there is no forum to review the guest. If there was you would get 10 out of 10 for bonhomie but only 1 for ability to handle Robinsons Cider. Never has... More

I'm just back from spending 3 nights at The Bateman Arms whilst I was visiting my children who live nearby. The staff and locals in the pub are the friendliest you could ask to meet and made me instantly welcome. The food was great with lots of fresh local ingredients used, which is what all country pubs should be doing... More

We ate twice here an evening meal and a Sunday lunch and I must say both were very good. They use local produce and everything is made on the premises. The service was very friendly and we were made to feel very much at home and coupled with good value for money the experience was very nice.

Accommodation is in the annex to the pub. Good location and easy to find. Great team of staff headed by Tracy, very welcoming. Good food at the pub itself, we ate there on both nights. Breakfast was good but no choice of fruit or yoghurts, there was cereal and then a cooked breakfast which is ordered the night before. The... More

We stayed in the Bateman arms for one night. The family room was lovely - it looked newly decorated and both the bedroom and bathroom were immaculate. We received a really warm welcome and very personable service from the owners and staff and the locals in the bar were friendly. We had our 1yr old with us and whilst we... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a girls week end away. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble . We had two rooms, one of which was recently refurbished to a very high standard. The beds were extremely comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean. We had a... More
