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.
The Bat and Ball always go above and beyond to accommodate us as a large party. We never feel rushed, the food is always amazing, and the atmosphere is always very relaxed. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
Main menu not very extensive so maybe a couple more choices on the Specials Menu to compensate
We spent Father’s Day here and were made to feel very welcome. Great food and service!
Your restaurant/pub is consistently busy/ full when we come on a Sunday. Your bar is the best for miles. Tio Pepe ( chilled ), ginger beer, good real ale, champagne or Prosecco by the glass, excellent choice of glassware, very very pleasant staff, super fast service, and consistently fantastic roast beef. Seriously good value. Why would I not come back on a regular basis. You have a formula other pubs/ restaurants should aspire to.
WE DECIDED TO REVISIT THE BAT AND BALL AFTER MANY YEARS AND WHAT A TRANSFORMATION! IT WAS ALWAYS ONE OF OUR MANY FAVOURITES, BUT THE ATMOSPHERE, STANDARD OF FOOD, WELCOME AND STAFF HAVE ALL PUT IT FIRMLY AT THE TOP OF OUR LIST AND WE WILL RETURN. A HAVE TO MAKE A SPECIAL MENTION OF OUR WAITRESS WHO WAS CHARMING, ENTHUSIASTIC AND ENHANCED THE EXPERIENCE FOR OUR FAMILY OF 6. HIGHLY RECOMMNDED.
Really friendly staff and very tasty food. Lovely artefacts around the pub enhancing general atmosphere! Will definitely return! Thank you
Thank you to all your staff for their warm and attentive service throughout. Congratulations to the chef as well!
We had a great time, awesome food, bonus head-buts and banter.
The food was great, and the customer service from bar staff and waitresses was amazing. Great job and highly recommended establishment
First class restaurant, highly recommended.
Super friendly service, great ambience and lovely food. Well presented and well attended to without being rushed or wanting for anything. Love this place. Top marks, well done to all the team.
Fantastic food and fantastic service
This is our third visit, having had 2 good visits we were excited to take another family mamber with us this time. Sadly we were really disappointed. The menu was really limited, a lot of things were served with chips and we had been hoping there would be a roast option being Bank Holiday Monday and there wasnt. Service was very slow and we waited about 40mins for our starters, considering we were there at 12.15 and it was very quiet we were surprised how long it all took. Sadly we won't be so keen to return after this experience.
Really lovely lunch in lovely surrounds . Friendly staff . Very enjoyable all round .
The service very slow this week, and wasn't very busy. Waited about 20 mins for a dessert menu and another 20 for someone to take our order. Gave up waiting and just paid the bill
Excellent - as usual! We visit regularly.
Another very enjoyable lunch - lovely food and service. Thoroughly recommended.
Great place, interesting menu, best steak eaten for a long time. Very friendly staff.
Delicious food and great service as always

Great location, food delicious, service attentive and good value for money. Great for a romantic meal or a family gathering.
A lovely evening with friendly and efficient staff, great food and a nice, laid back atmosphere. Perfect!
Very good, many thanks!
