About Bat & Ball
The Bat & Ball is a charming country pub, nestled in the small village of Breamore, you’ll find us just on the outskirts of the New Forest National Park. We promise to always make you feel welcome, whether you’re joining us for a beer and nibbles in the bar, or enjoying a leisurely meal in the dining room.
The Bat and Ball features 3 stunning original fireplaces with booths and table seating.
Outside, a large beer garden features plenty of bench seating plus the Al fresco seating area has a large canopy to help in the typical British weather!
The tent was lovely, the food tasty and the service speedy. Well done.
We really enjoyed our lunch here on Monday. We had to sit on the tables outdoors for a little while, but as soon as a space was available the helpful staff moved us in to the lovely outdoor space they have created. The food and service was great and really good value for money. We look forward to returning in the future.
I booked a table to be under in the warmth to be told they were full and had to sit outside. Asked to be moved under in the warmth as soon as. 6 other tables got seated before mine. Felt as though we were completely forgotten about. Only when I complained did something happen. We waited nearly 2 hours for our food to find out it had not even been cooked as they out it through in wrong table and the food hadnt been made. Three different people came and told us different stories on this matter. We had a 3 year old with us who was getting very upset by this point and we were on the verge of leaving. Finally the manager came out asking what our food was and made sure it was done straight away and kept checking in on us. The food was nice but a bit unsure on whether to returned because of this.
Excellent food and service outside in challenging weather, the canopy and heaters are a great addition!
Freshly cooked food with a new menu. Very welcoming and warm staff Love the new outdoor tipee And WOW the new cocktails are amazing. Definitely be heading back to see the new owners again of the Bat & Ball
Service was very friendly, but waited 45 minutes for our food
Lovely food and drinks served by delightful staff. As the weather was fine and sunny, we were able to sit outside of the marquees, so this made our experience even better. We will be returning soon.
Everything great thanks
We had a great time at the bat and ball this Sunday afternoon. The food was amazing as always and the app was very easy and super efficient. Highly recommended, can't wait to come back again soon.
Lovely country pub, fabulous garden area with plenty of seating. We choose a lovely sunny afternoon, we ordered drinks from the QR code which was a palaver as there was no phone signal & we had to wait to ask for the Wi-Fi code which also had a poor signal. We decided after a couple of drink and seeing other peoples food go past to place an order. Time passed and other people arrived and received their food orders but still nothing. We asked one of the servers after an hour had past and she went off to ask (never to return) we asked other member of staff who went off and came back offering a refund -no explanation just 'I'm sorry we're really busy'. We accepted the refund as an hour and a half had passed by now. To begin with we talked out arranging to revisit with friends but when no effort was made to save the sale or make amends we were left really disappointed, such a shame....
Absolutely brilliant service, great food, Jenny the waitress was very helpful helping us as we couldn’t get the app on the phone, staff were very friendly was beautiful day and food was superb as I’m gluten free and they made sure the food had the right ingredients. Lovely big garden and marquee everyone having a great time.
We waited an hour and a half for 2 burgers, a salad and ribs and half an hour for a drink! Get your act together please!
a very nice pub with good food, excellent table service during lockdown and ordering on app
Took an hour and half for food to come out, but other than that a lovely environment!
Really impressed with the service and ease of ordering and paying with the app. Really friendly lovely pub
Very covid safe, lovely garden, well spaced tables. Order on app but only worked on WiFi. Food was fabulous, ribs the best!! Will definitely be back
First time visiting and will definitely be back soon.
Delicious food, sunny garden, great ordering system, friendly staff - very happy!
Fantastic evening shame app didn’t work but made up completely by the attentive and welcoming staff! Thank you we will be back again soon
Lovely ☺️ the staff were so helpful and happy and smiley . The food was delicious and the atmosphere was really relaxing 😎
Lots of spicy and chilli hot things on the menu..
What lovely staff, food and ambiance. My first visit after a recommendation from a friend and I’ll certainly be back. Well worth a visit, I can’t recommend highly enough.
Excellent service and very welcoming staff. Chicken, bacon and brie ciabatta was very tasty! Compliments to the chef! Will certainly be back again soon! Thanks Rob
Disappointed by lack of gluten free / vegan options. Only one vegan main and no vegan starters. Gluten free options not clearly shown on the menu and limited options for those who are gluten free and vegetarian. Was told they have a gluten free bun but the oil used for the burger isn’t, why bother with a GF bun? Seemed very expensive, over £80 for just one course for four people. Curry was over £17! Cheaper to go to a proper a Thai. Used to come here nearly every other week before the new owners took over. Unfortunately won’t be returning now with the menu. Will stick to the horse and groom which is run by the previous owners.
When we first arrived there was a notice saying please use the front door and not the garden gate , which because of covid times made sense, unless your disabled. My husband is disabled ( double amputee) .he cannot walk far and cant bend his prosthetic limb We did get help from the man taking orders ,but by the time we had got from the car park to check and trace with a lively dog and then shown to our table which was up a step to get to our table , my husband was well and truly embarrassed. Anyway ,the chicken burger I had was lovely, and my husband had the steak and ale pie , he said was very nice .but 2 meals 2 desserts and a few drinks it was nearly £60 ! I'm not sure we would return unfortunately
