About The Bat & Ball
Richard, Caroline 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.
We had a lovely lunch. The Christmas decorations were outstanding with a real chalet vibe.
We had lunch in the snug which was a lovely room for a big party . Very good service and delicious food . A great time was had by all of us so thank you .
Was our first visit having recently moved into the area and the service and food was impeccable, will absolutely return, thank you.
Ambience, service and food all excellent
Wonderful atmosphere, warm and welcoming. Good food, great staff.
Great food and well looked after by the staff
Booked online the day before our meal and received a confirmation email and a reminder email on the day of the booking. Arrived and was greeted by a very friendly waiter who took us directly to our table in a beautiful setting which is full of charm, warmth and comfort. The service was first class and the food delicious. We didn’t have to wait long for anything and the staff were very attentive without being over attentive. Everyone was very friendly and certainly knew their menus and drinks. I had a steak, and I like it blue. It was cooked to perfection as were all the other meals in our party. The price reflects a restaurant rather than a pub but guess what, it is a restaurant within a pub, with the service to match a restaurant. It is very much different to some other places who can’t work out their identity by charging restaurant prices for pub service and quality. This place knows exactly what they want to provide and sets the bar high. Please don’t misunderstand me, I love pubs and I love restaurants, but I also love to pay the price worthy of the service and product. Service is always my issue in many places but not here. Our party were made to feel special from the moment we arrived, to the moment we left. I love the ethos of this place and I will certainly go back without hesitation. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Wonderful lunch with my daughter. A lovely place for lunch or a longer visit. The burgers were delicious, the beer delightful and the house red perfect. Great atmosphere and superb, friendly service. Thank you so very much.
Great service. Good meal. 10 out of 10.
Wonderful roast beef dinner
Perfect Sunday lunch with the family. Food was super, staff attentive and it was warm and friendly. Would highly recommend.
The restaurant & bar staff were excellent in making us feel very welcome and with regular checks we were never waiting long for placing orders for food or drink. The snug provided us with a cosy private room and the whole family had a very memorable evening.
Really lovely personal service with the lady remembering details of our party even when people moved round the table! We were a party of 12 and everyone loved their food particularly the medium rare steaks and delicious puddings! The creme brûlée with berries on the bottom I am still thinking about! Thank you team for making our team meal so relaxing! We all loved it!!
Food cold & burnt and service was non existent
Richard very helpful to my disabled daughter. Everything is much more enjoyable when people are kind.
We'd pre-ordered a meal for ten - lasagne, cheesy chips and salad. This worked really well for us. The B&B were very accommodating and the staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. We'd definitely do that again, much easier than trying to get everyone to choose!!
Great place great service great food
As good as ever Very friendly and accommodating
Lovely 2nd visit. Food is amazing but the normal menu is very limited for choice. There is no simple chicken dish, and this was the same with the daily special menu and I really struggled to find something to eat. This is my own personal food likes and dislikes so Apart from this it was lovely.
Enjoyed our meal very much. Lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Will be back ASAP !
We had a thoroughly enjoyable lunch with excellent service and will certainly be going again.
We were very well looked after for a large group. Thank you
Prices of the wine by the glass quite high. But the wine was lovely!
