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

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
