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.
Enjoyed a birthday meal in the garden. Lovely country pub setting. From booking online, welcome on arrival, excellent food and attentive friendly service - all five stars. Highly recommend.
Lovely garden to sit in on a summer's evening.
My daughter had her 21st birthday dinner here with friends. They were so well looked after by friendly professional staff. The food was delicious as always.
Lovely lovely pub, wonderful atmosphere and ambience, first class service and amazing food .... we’ll be back again soon!!
Fantastic country pub meal
Spent a lovely few days here staying on the campsite. My only criticisms are that on our last day the pub/restaurant was very busy and covid rules were ignored. Also although we had booked a table we were told we could not sit by the river as those tables were for 4 people. Yet the next 3 couples to arrive were all allocated those tables!!!
Unfortunately, there were several food items missing from my salad but the staff rectified the situation as soon as possible and were very apologetic.
We had a fantastic lunch in the courtyard Service & food was excellent 👌 We’ll definitely put this place on our top list
Lovey food and fab service. Harry was so helpful recommending the cocktails to try and specials on the menu.
Was a good experience, had the chase the waitress for drinks ordered but good all the same
Stayed in adjacent campsite, so convenient. Lovely atmosphere and excellent, pleasant service.
Great garden eating area, vibrant atmosphere.
Friendly atmosphere, stunning landscaping/exterior-interior design. Cosy, country, chic. Tasty menu, drinks served exactly as ordered. Love this place!
We had a wonderful experience at the Bat and Ball on 4 August. We had booked a party of 5 in to celebrate our marriage, following the changed government guidelines on wedding celebrations. We were made to feel very welcome; the service was friendly and attentive; the food was excellent. We had a lovely afternoon! Thank you so much.
lovely lunch out friendly staff
Had a really lovely, relaxing evening - it's a wonderful setting and each member of the team (phone, greeting, and serving) was friendly and charming - attentive but without being intrusive. Will definitely be back soon! Thank you so much!
Lovely evening - outside seating is very well done! Felt secure to eat out here in light of the social distancing requirements at the moment. We will be back soon x

This is the only pub I would visit in the area knowing you are safe in all respects The way the staff are trained is excellent The way tables are sanatised when customers leave the table ready and safe for the next customer A great amount of planning must of happened
Stayed here 20 yrs ago, huge changes, for the better, modern clean toilet block, welcoming staff on campsite and in pub. Nice food and good ales.
