“Need to be finished, before opening.”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

After hear mixed reviews from friends and family, a friend and I decided to go for a meal. The first thing we noticed was that it was very cold and smelt of paint inside and the entrance door was open. We then asked for a table for two, we were given the only table for two in an empty restruants where there were more comfortable tables available. The food however, arrived quickly and was very tasty!! The staff were quick to attend to our needs and were friendly. I would visit the pub again once the donations have finished!

Our family called in on a whim for a bit of lunch (whilst stopping over at a local campsite) and found a little gem. We were welcomed by very friendly staff with our 3 small boys. The children's menu was fantastic, great value (with good size portions) and the service was quick. The main menu was varied and what we ordered was great. The setting was ideal for a lovely afternoon, and we enjoyed the beer garden (and the excellent local beer) in the sun. Thanks for the hospitality and we'll see you again soon.

Sunday lunch was average only: pork without crackling in rather small portions and poor quality gravy. Excellent starter and good service. Expensive beer. On balance, rather mediocre value. Just opened, the Bateman is getting massive local support. This will dwindle if value for money falls below the competition in nearby villages.

Total mess let us down one hour before arrival,lame excuse and no apology.blamed overbooking and not checking on availability,what a poor way to run a business,if this is how these new owners are going to operate then they have no chance of being around for much longer,I am totally disgusted by the shoddy and rude way in which I was treated.
