I've stayed here four times now and will do again if travelling south and need a stop over. The bar area is old and very nice. The service is very good as it the choice of beers. There's a good selection on the menu and I've never been disappointed, in fact a lamb shoulder dish was one of the best... More

I have been a few times to the Bat and Ball and the food has always been average at best but a friend of mine insisted on going. I ordered scampi which was cooked beyond all recognition - it was bone dry, chewy and pretty inedible. Considering they were charging almost £10 for frozen scampi and chips it was a... More

Quaint pub in a beautiful English village but rooms were a bit shabby and not wonderfully clean. Also the Grace room had a collapsed mattress. The service however was delightful and breakfast was fabulous. Staff did everything they could to sort out any problems.

I chose the Bat and Ball as my friend and I were involved in filming an event in nearby Wheatley on Monday. We stayed in a twin room on the ground floor for one night only. We did not arrive until around 8.50pm but the member of staff we met made us feel welcome and showed us to our room,... More

We came here with friends for Sunday brunch after reading the reviews here about 'nice meals', but actually the food wasn't good at all, and service was atrocious. When we first arrived, we stood there waiting for a waitress to acknowledge us for about 3 minutes (which is really long! There were 2 of them wandering around but none of... More

We stayed in the Dexter room and it looked very unkept and tatty, let alone extremely small. The bathroom had milldew everywhere and looked really unclean - I coul; dnot even face having a shower in there. We had a booked breakfast, but we seemed to be a complete inconvenience to the waitress who told us nothing, turned up with... More

Stayed the weekend, had a nice meal but what really spoilt it was music thumping out at gone midnight for a birthday party, bearing in mind the best rooms are above the pub itself, a note in our rooms saying no drinks served in the bar after 11pm surprised me that this party was still going strong with youngsters at...

We went to visit our daughter in Cuddesdon who is training at Ripon Theological College. We stayed at the only place in this small village the Bat and Ball Inn. The owner and the girls were really polite and friendly, the inn was very clean and well kept. All the rooms were named after cricketers and our first room floor... More
