About The Bat & Ball
Richard, Caroline, Dan and their team look forward to welcoming you to The Bat and Ball.
Set in the heart of the Sussex countryside we serve seasonal dishes in a relaxed and welcoming setting. Their bar boasts a great selection of real ales alongside a carefully selected wine list and soft drink selection and is a great place to enjoy a light bite in front of an open fire.
Alternatively dine from the a la carte menu showcasing dishes carefully selected by Head Chef Chris Upton.
The Bat & Ball will also offer the ideal location for weddings, private parties, special occasions and other celebratory affairs. The surrounding grounds and gardens will all be available to hire and the pub itself has a number of private areas that are perfect for office lunches and dinners.
Lovely atmospheric and excellent service
Everything was perfect ! We had family over from Poland and they enjoyed their lunch very much as did my friends. However I think there could be an improvement on the farewell as we left the pub. No one said thank you or goodbye and we did spend a lot of money in there that day. Other than that it was superb!
Very pleased to see a number of vegan options on the menu however the prices did seem a little more expensive than similar places I have visited. Great staff and a lovely warm friendly atmosphere.
We have been before but we brought friends this time and we were all very happy with our lunch. The only small problem was difficulty parking which apparently was due to the auction house having a sale, so tricky for you to monitor.
Our experience on Tuesday night was nowhere as good as previous visits and disappointing for the first timers.
Delicious lunch, with excellent service.
Food wasn’t as good as previous I’m afraid.
Lively atmosphere and great food and price
The Staff were very attentive but not intrusive. Food excellent
Lovely pub with really relaxing warm ambience
Always the same, great staff and food and atmosphere, all the way from Guildford I come here, second home😜
As ever, the food, service & ambience were impeccable. Such a friendly & welcoming place where the food is amazing matching the service
Superb New Years Eve dinner/evening. Steak was cooked to perfection - delicious. Thank you.
The sharing platters at New Year was a good idea. However we thought the starter one was thin. And putting the cheese and desserts on one platter did not work at all. On a positive note the steaks we had were spot on.
We had a family Christmas get together (8 of us). It was our first visit. The place was packed, very popular. It was a really good atmosphere and the service was great. The food was average/good overall. Prices were commensurate with the type of venue and dish choice. I would recommend for families.
Always welcoming. Great service and gorgeous food. It was busy but all staff worked in a calm and professional manner. Our visitors that came along with us mentioned how quaint and beautiful the setting was. Always a fav in my book! Thank you, we will be back again soon.
Had a fab time,nice food and very pleasant and helpful staff. A lovely venue. Will use again
Lovely family lunch. Perfect setting.
We always have a delicious meal at the Bat and Ball. The atmosphere was buzzing and the pub decorated beautifully. Service was faultless.
Lovely food, lovely atmosphere, but very surprised at the price of wine!! Our local, is very smart and owned by Chris Evans and the wine isn’t £9.50 a glass! Thank you for a lovely evening.
Family of 9, we had a good table, quick service so didn’t have to wait long for our food. The starters were great especially the soup, fabulous, & very tasty. all meals were hot! All the staff were friendly & happy. Highly recommend. 😊
A wonderful evening enjoyed by the whole family. Excellent food and drink with fast and speedy service. The atmosphere was truly enjoyable.
Lovely evening, lovely food, unfortunately my Monkfish was slightly overcooked, however everything else was fabulous! Thanks 😊
