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.

A table found at the last minute on a very busy Sunday.. greeted and served with warmth and friendliness. Service has speeded up .. not rushed but less time waiting for courses which is appreciated.

Our first visit and we’ll certainly be back! Loved all aspects but the service stood out - polite, funny and engaged. A rarity! Brilliant. We loved the food choice too. Perhaps another veggie dish other than salads. The gingerbread ice cream was gorgeous!

Great food and most amazing ambiance but portions could be a wee bit larger. We have been dining with you for quite some time and we always comment that the food is good, the pub and restaurant are amazing places to be in but the meals could be larger. Fab place to come to though.

The pub was very busy on arrival, but we were quickly seated and our drink order taken. The menu was more than adequate to give a comprehensive choice from snacks to main dishes.Overall the food, service and attentiveness of the staff was excellent.

The chicken roast is really far to big for normal diners to manage!! Would suggest reducing the size, you really don't need 1/2 a chicken!

A really good find! Lovely pub inside and out. The gardens, terraces and lovely pond out the front all add up to make an exceptional pub. The food was delicious, above normal pub standards we would say and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The were very happy for our 2 dogs to be with us as well. What more could you ask for. Just wish we lived nearer to it!

The service we received on a mums catch up, was outstanding. We were greeted with a warm welcome by the bar attendant and seated at a lovely table. Our waitress couldn’t do more for us and was very friendly. You could tell she enjoyed being there. The food was so tasty and presentable as always.

We have used the Bat n Ball for our work parties for the last few years and they have always been fantastic, the food put on by Caroline & Richard is 5*. As this has been so good I also tried them for an afternoon tea, they were so accommodating to food requirements and that it was a special birthday, the hospitality is amazing and to top it off the pub is in a lovely country setting, plenty of garden space and you can even camp if you fancy! Def worth a visit 😊

We celebrated my husbands 50th on Friday only making a reservation for 8. 13 arrived and the staff accommodated us all without hesitation. The staff.were polite and attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food was divine and the lemon and almond pudding was to die for. Everyone had a great evening, thank you
