The Bateman Arms was built c.1750 by Sir James Bateman (Lord Mayor Of London) as a building where his Estate workers would collect on pay day. 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.
Today, Abbi Court and her team provide a warm welcome to both locals and the many business and leisure visitors who travel to the Marches throughout the year. With the rural splendour of Herefordshire, Shropshire, and Mid Wales on the doorstep, there’s plenty to discover!
We are glad to announce that, from 16th July, we reopened and are serving food Wednesday to Sunday. Our team are working hard to ensure the restaurant and accommodation remain fully Covid secure, and we ask all guests to rearrange any bookings if you show symptoms or meet anyone with symptoms.
We are operating with additional cleaning procedures, limited capacity and other precautions such as sanitiser stations, for the safety and wellbeing of our teams and guests.
Please get in contact to check our current opening hours.
