,The Bateman Arms is situated in Shobdon village (pop.800) which is 5 miles from the Welsh border in an area commonly known as the "Marches" and named after the private armies that once roamed these badlands looking for a skirmish. Thankfully things are a lot more peaceful and welcoming these days, with North Herefordshire offering outdoor enthusiasts the chance to stroll along scenic footpaths, while others relax in its laid back rurality. The rooms are in the old stables adjacent to the Inn and are all ensuite. We are dog friendly with owners able to enjoy a meal with their "pooch" in the lower bar.
In keeping with our rural heritage, our Head Chef insists on sourcing as much locally produced ingredients as possible for his homemade dishes. In so doing he presents a wide ranging menu of traditional fayre, that offers great taste and good value for guests. We think our reviews speak for themselves.
