Booked late Friday evening for two nights and weren't disappointed at all. We had the triple room which was spacious, immaculate and full of character. Comfy beds, tea/coffee tray and the option of fresh milk + homemade shortbread biscuits. Complimentary toiletries. Very pleasant hosts who made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was a feast and beautifully cooked. What more could... More

The Bateman Arms is one of the most remarkable B&B/ pub restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of staying and eating in. Situated on the main road towards the Shobdon aerodrome, you blink and you will miss this gem of a place. The food is out of this world and is of the standard of a high quality restaurant... More

Visited this pub yesterday and had a super meal. The decor is a little dull but the staff are friendly, the prices are reasonable and the food is very good. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone in this area.

We arrived after walking the 2nd part of the Mortimer Trail and the pub was shut; luckily the landlord was just driving out and on spotting us re-parked his car and checked us in. Warm welcome and lovely big room (2 double beds) all the things you need. We ate in the pub and it was a quick service and... More

We had a two night stay here for a wedding. The room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We had our baby and toddler with us, so lots of luggage and travel cot etc but still had space to move around (just!). The staff here are lovely and friendly and will do everything they can to make your stay comfortable.... More

What this pub lacks in decor it more than makes up with friendliness. The food is good and variety of drinks reasonable. A good rustic pub with very reasonable prices as well. Definitely worth a visit

The room was well equipped and clean. The food, evening meal and breakfast were really excellent. The manager and the owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. We would stay here again if in the area.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We were a big table so delays were to be expected. However all staff were very polite and attentive. Husband says that it is the best belly pork he has ever been served. Can't wait to visit again!
