Having passed this pub many times we finally decided to book and try dinner. Pity we didn't do this sooner! The food was excellent, the service good and the restaurant is attractively laid out and invitingly lit. Well worth a visit and looking forward to returning.

This pub and restaurant has everything! From being greeted to seated, drinks to the table and attentive staff. Food 5***** and in abundance, homemade bread wanting you to ask for more, good selection of wines from around the world. The deserts where so different you just had to try them. Couldn't recommend this Pub/Restaurant highly enough, go check it out... More

We celebrated my husband and his twin brother's 70th Birthday at the Bat and Ball on Sunday 6th February 2017. This place has a great atmosphere and the food is excellent. Staff and Manager couldn't be more attentive. There were 14 of us in the snug at the back of the bar which we had to ourselves. I would thoroughly... More

Our experience did not match the reviews- the food varied from good to needs improvement. Regretably the scampi fritter was filled with oil but the fish & chips were very good.

On the pond, a tree festooned with bright lights, inside a warm spacious set of rooms, straight out of central casting as the quintessential romantic British country pub. It is eclectic and tasteful without being dominating and full of cosy corners to sit in. Just the two of us, we opted for a comfy padded banquette in the pub side... More

On arrival felt that we were doing them the favour, barman continues to clean the surfaces, no one to seat or greet, we wander around aimlessly, we were meeting people otherwise would have left, not a good start, drinks were OK, then comes the travesty, menu (Monday lunch) not spoilt for choice, two meals and two sandwiches, how do you...

We had a lovely meal here. The choice on the menu was varied and plentiful, so much so that another visit is planned and the menu already chosen. Good value and relaxing ambience

Very good ambience and friendly helpful staff but ordinary food. I have found if the bread being served is nothing special you can usually expect not very good food

Under the new owners this pub is very much improved. The food is excellent but patchy service lets them down, some of the staff not being very attentive. Have eaten both in the restaurant and also in the bar/lounge area; whilst we couldn't fault the restaurant some of the seating in bar/lounge is not very comfortable. My biggest criticism of... More
