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

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 actually live in Shobdon and have not been to The Bateman for a few years and thought we would give it a try as it has changed hands. What a fantastic surprise!! 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
