Sweet at first taste, before the irresistibly sharp after-kick, British Cassis is the perfect aperitif served straight, over ice, twists beautifully into fizzing champagne or prosecco and is decadent in cocktails. Fraternise with British Cassis and kiss au revoir to French imitations.
An Anglo-French Romance
- British Cassis
- Champagne or Prosecco
Pop a trio of blackcurrants in a chilled champagne flute and add a generous dash of British Cassis. Then top with your favourite champagne or prosecco. An incredibly simple classic.Get Inspired
The Bateman Arms
June's Bar of the month
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 our 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.
