The Bateman Arms was built in about 1750 by Sir James Bateman (Lord Mayor Of London) as a building where his Estate workers would collect on pay day. No doubt the meeting place was designed so that he would get some back! Over the years it became a staging post for weary Drovers to refresh themselves as they walked livestock from West Wales to markets in Birmingham and London.
In keeping with our rural heritage, Head Chef Mark insists on sourcing locally produced ingredients for his homemade dishes. Together with 2nd Chef Ronnie they present a wide ranging menu of traditional fayre that offers great taste and good value for guests. We think our reviews speak for themselves. "Made in Shobdon, Not Iceland!"
