About the hotel
Whether you are seeking accommodation for a short break or you are on business in North Herefordshire, the Bateman Arms is the place for you. Recently recognised in the Laterooms Top Rated Awards as defined by guests in 2014, we pride ourselves on the warm welcome, comfortable rooms and fabulous, locally sourced food that you will be offered during your stay. The Bateman is centrally placed in Shobdon Village to take advantage of the beautiful and much fought over Marches area and walkers paradise.
Thankfully the owners (Tracy & Simon) are focussed on giving you a much warmer welcome than the English gave the Welsh centuries ago. We offer a Public bar with dart boards, a comfortable Lounge bar, and a Restaurant Room. For accommodation we offer six well appointed, en suite rooms in the Stone Coach House situated in the large car park and adjacent to the Inn, while the large garden offers space for children to run off steam as Mum and Dad relax. Dog owners please note that there is a £10 a night surcharge per room per pooch however small and lovable it is. This covers the extra cleaning that is generally required. For those who want to eat with their dogs you are welcome to but in the lower bar or garden areas only. We are not doggist as this policy applies to owners who bring bears, giraffes and other furry animals to the Bateman Arms.

Noise from room above was a little annoying.
Excellent breakfast served by a nice lady.
Welcome to Shobdon
We were welcomed in the car park on our late evening arrival (thanks to the M25) just before closing time by our host and shown our room.
We just had time for a very welcome drink before turning in. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed excellent full English breakfasts on both days. We treated the local family to dinner at the Batemen Arms. There were eight of us in all including children and we all enjoyed the meal which was well presented and from a large and varied menu. The room was comfortable and clean with a good shower and towels.
