The new owners are doing a great job in improving the quality of the Bateman Arms.
We had dinner several times and enjoined the good food. Flexibel and nice people, lovely atmosphere and excellent service.

We visited the Bateman Arms today (Thursday 9th May 2013) for a quick drink and I have to say it is the worst pub I have been in. We ordered our drinks but the ones we wanted weren't available, so we chose another, this time the sprinkler was missing and the bar person was unable to pull the drink. We had to choose yet another!! We then proceeded to sit in a very cold room to drink our long awaited drinks...............when a huge dog entered the room. My partner hates dogs. This dog then proceeded to urinate up on of the chairs in the room. We couldn't get out of there quick enough. The place also smells vile.

We had meals there and the food and the people were really nice, A lot of pearl lake customers go there we were told because of the clicky feel on site.

This place is okay if you like cobwebs and spiders, your knife and fork sticking to the table and staying in a pub that is closed when you get back at 10.20 pm. A menu that says there is something available for breakfast that you love, but they have run out (we booked this weeks ago - had they forgotten we were coming). We walked into the restaurant and wanted to sit on the table that was getting the sun but that wasn't made up for us so we had to sit on the table that was made up. This inn is meant to be a AA 4 star - I didn't realise their standards had dropped so low. I now remember why I always insist on staying in a hotel.
