This really is a lovely pub. We have never stayed, but the food is excellent, a good mixture of standard fare and imaginative dishes, all really well cooked and good value. The chips are worthy of note all on their own. The atmosphere is cosy and above all the welcome is genuinely warm and helpful. All the staff were friendly,... More

This looks like a fairly basic roadside pub/restaurant with rooms, but actually it's far, far better than that. Lovely rooms in a separate building, a cosy bar and restaurant serving super food, and attentive staff. Food is locally sourced and of excellent quality. Highly recommended.

Visited twice now - breaking a long journey to N Wales. Both times we have arrived on Sunday evening, and Simon and Tracey have bent over backwards to see that we had a meal - making sandwiches specially the night that the chef was off. Comfy and clean rooms with all you need, sure we will be back.

Had an overnight stay at The Bateman Arms and what a great stay we had. Rooms in the stable block were clean, warm and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The pub itself had such a lovely welcoming feel to it - staff were very friendly and the locals were a lot of fun. Seems to be a trend... More

Thank you Julie. It is important to us that guess are made to feel as welcome as possible from the first minute of entering. A nice smile and friendly word should be default setting in this business. More

Stayed here at the weekend, very friendly, helpful people offering great value for money service. Rooms are clean, tidy and well equipped. The Full English Breakfast on Sunday was especially good, piping hot, well cooked and good quality. Keep up the good work guys!

Our room was located in the old stable block adjacent to the pub. It was very well presented, immaculately clean and very comfortable. It is next to a main road, so don't expect complete quiet. Tracy and Simon are very friendly hosts. Nothing was too much bother and even catered to my 'slimming world' diet, (which went by the wayside... More
