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

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

A lovely welcome included delicious homemade shortbread and fresh milk for tea and coffee. Spotlessly clean room and a friendly, warm welcome from the landlord and landlady. Breakfasts were plentiful and very satisfying and the two evening meals we had were also excellent. The pub is clearly well used by locals (always a good sign!) and the bar and waiting... More

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
