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

This was the first time we have stayed at The Bateman Arms. We were given a warm welcome & shown to our en-suite room, it was one of six rooms In a converted outbuilding. We were pleasantly surprised to find the accommodation was very spacious & spotlessly clean. It was comfortably furnished with good taste, there were complimentary beverages and... 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

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
