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

Very impressed with the Bat & Ball Inn, my room was nice size with high ceilings and nice size bathroom. You have to remember this is not a 5* Hilton so expect a small TV & a slow kettle ....! But other than that it's lovely nice decor room. Two comments I picked up on below one being the traffic... More

fantastic staff and a lovely friendly atmosphere. Great food too. My room was quaint albeit basic but had everything I needed. Access to car park a bit hairy of you are in a large car but I made it. I will make a point of making this one of my regular stop overs when working in the area.

The first challenge if you drive or have hired anything bigger than a compact is getting into the car park,the drive way arch is very narrow so beware. This is a pub and probably a fairly good one at that and for the cricketer (the clue is in the pubs name) there is much to see ,old bats. balls ,programmes... More

sophie l, Owner at The Bat & Ball Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Tripadvisor and all the points you made. Unfortunately as an old eighteen centuary coaching inn with many original features, we are limited with space and on booking we advise our guests of this. As in staying in any hotel, pub with rooms you will always encounter some noise and... More
