Visited for the England match on Sunday last weekend and was very impressed with the service and food, especially the young dark haired guy serving behind the bar who was very polite and helpful. Fantastic garden as well and a good atmosphere.

Hi there, Our menus are available online to look at but sadly trip advisor does not allow links to be used in answers. You will find us when you google The Bat and Ball Farnham. We look forward to seeing you!

Yes it does, it's separate from the ladies too so the dad's have no excuse! ;-) There are also high chairs too.

Your first time here you might find us a little difficult to find as the pub is down an un-adopted lane in the bottom of a valley, backing on to the Bourne stream. "The Bat" is a traditional country/village pub retaining the charm and atmosphere of what a pub should be. An open fire, panelled walls, nooks and crannies, hops hanging from the old oak beams, cricketing memorabilia and six shining brass hand pumps for ale. Outside there is a covered patio area with grape vines overhead and a large garden with flower borders, a children’s play structure and plenty of seating. There is also a large car park.We offer a good and wholesome selection of light snacks, main meals and a mouth watering selection of homemade puddings and desserts. All our food is cooked and prepared in house by our team.Crossing the generations ,the pub is a meeting place for all and you will be sure of a genuine welcome
