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.
Excellent food with plenty of choices Staff very attentive & have great service
Love this place! It's very special to me.and my partner and we love it more and more every time we visit. Hope to one day have our wedding reception there
Had to ask to be served, Food didn’t come out together and one sharing meal was 15 min late to the table.
We had a lovely meal on Friday evening. The food was great and the staff were friendly and attentive. We shall definitely be back 🙂
A lovely evening, thank you. Very friendly and professional staff
Had a lovely evening on Saturday 26 January - belated Christmas do with colleagues - then celebrated a family birthday on 2 February for lunch. On both occasions, the food was fabulous, the atmosphere was just right and the service was excellent. Thank you.
Fab warm welcome, great service, delicious food as always! Thankyou Richard, Caroline and team. :)
Thank you very much. I am a massive advocate of the Hall & Woodhouse venues and have found another jewel in the crown. Lovely atmosphere and the waiting staff were so attentive. A real credit
Another great meal in a great pub!
Best roast ever! Good service but a few points. Drinks came after food. Waitress forgot water and desert menus - had to ask for both. Lovely staff though, and didn't take away from lovely experience. Will definitely come again. Have already recommended to friends
We enjoyed an excellent Sunday Lunch, served by lovely staff. All in the most convivial of surroundings.
Brilliant Sunday roast. I love the decor. Really nice atmosphere as busy but plenty of room - thank you!
First visit and won’t be our last.
Great food, service attentive and good fun atmosphere. We're new to the area and this was our 3rd visit - The Bat & Ball is becoming our new local favourite!
Great pub, lovely food and really nice staff.
Service excellent - very friendly and welcoming staff. The food very good, with no complaints from anyone in our party of five. We'll go again......
We were initially put on a small table in the corner which is not really suitable for 4 when the restaurant was virtually empty. This is the second time this has happened and is easily avoidable.
Lovely food 🥘 Beautiful environment...appropriately attentive staff ... And wheelchair accessible
This was my second visit and the food was excellent as usual. Only issue was the service, we were told a few times that we needed to give the table back by 3 as there was another seating after us which was fine. We asked for the bill at 2.55 and waited 20 mins for it then waited another 20 mins for the waitress to come back with the card machine which was very frustrating. This was in contradiction with being hurried along to free up the table. Such a shame as I really like the venue and food and would recommend but I don’t like to be kept waiting like that. Hopefully it will be different next time.
Lovely pub, food and staff but slightly expensive - London prices.
We had a lovely meal and great service, despite the pub being extremely busy.
Proud to call this pub our local.
Beautiful pub. Great service, food is good but a little pricey
Hi- had the best roast beef yesterday! My only comments for improvement would be that while your waiting staff were friendly/ helpful/accommodating they neglected to ask if we would like any condiments- resulting in numerous trips back and forth to the kitchen for horseradish/ Apple sauce / mayo (for the kids F&C) Otherwise a great lunch and we'll certainly be back :-)
Fabulous Sunday lunch. One of the best and most generous I have had in a restaurant for a very long time.
