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

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

We booked a room here for 2 nights as the bat and Ball is only about 10 mins. from Waterperry gardens. We had a twin room on the first night which was in a separate block downstairs, it was small but quite adequate and the bed comfortable, fresh and clean. Could have done with a blind or net curtains as... More

Thank you for your taking the time to write your review on Tripadvisor and am sorry that your second night with us was spoilt by the size of the room. As I have pointed out many times, we are an eighteen centuary pub and are limited for space therefore on making bookings guests are advised of this. As soon as... More

Far from friendly welcome - tired small rooms and pretty noisy with fire doors slamming until the early hours. Entrance to Boycott room up rusty staircase to a very tired looking door (looked like a cheap American motel). Nice evening meal in restaurant and reasonable breakfast. Stayed for two nights and would not return.

A charming, English Inn on the countryside with very friendly staff, good food, comfortable beds and a nice 'beer-garden'. Very convenient for meals at Le Manoir, which is 5 min down the road. All in all, a very pleasant stay in beautiful surroundings.

Had a very relaxed sunny lunch in the garden few days ago. Good variety on the menu; very friendly and polite staff. Panninis were good, large sized portions - tad too much fat on the bacon in mine if you want a fussy comment. Tables and benches were the combined pub table with long built in bench either side -...

We stayed here for one night on a business trip as it was much better value than anything closer and nicer than the motorway hotel options. Travelled down on the Sunday morning and enjoyed an afternoon in the beer garden, had a lovely evening meal and some more drinks, and then stayed in one of the small but suitable double... More

We had a really nice stay at the Bat and the Ball Inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and we really slept soundly. All was beautifully done. It was handy for dinner at nearby Le Manoir but I can also say that the menu in the pub that night was quite attractive too. Wish... More

Great little place to stay in Oxford. The rooms are clean and spacious. Free WiFi are available in rooms. There is a little pub downstairs and breakfast is good! Price is reasonable too. There is a parking space behind the hotel.
