Went to the Bat and Ball for dinner on Saturday evening. Booked a table as it can get very busy. You have to order your food at the bar which is no problem. Quite crowded but service very good. Food was great with lots of...More

Sunday lunch menu was most enjoyable and the friendly staff made a great afternoon. The Sunday roast was cooked to perfection and the beef casserole was a generous portion. Desserts were enjoyed by the kids.

It took us four days to finally find this amazingly wonderful sounding pub in Farnham. Once found, however, all good....with a big jar of doggie biscuits for my favourite person Bella, our old, but beautiful, old black Labrador. She loved the pub, but, next time,...More

The Bat and Ball is a lovely little country pub that is family friendly and dog friendly. We have been here a few times with small groups and one particularly large group that the B&B handled amazingly. They were very accommodating and pleasant. The food...More

We had a nice family meal in this classic English country pub. Has a nice beer garden and a good play area for the kids. Food was quick and decent quality for pub food. Staff were friendly and all round was a positive experience.

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
