My sister has recently moved to the area and so recommended it for a family get-together on Easter Sunday. The staff were very welcoming when we arrived and promptly served us with drinks. As it was a nice day we sat outside watching the ducks whilst waiting for other family members to join us. As soon as they arrived we... More

After receiving a recommendation from friends, my partner and I were looking forward to returning to the bat and ball after a good few years. The decor, grounds and layout are lovely, but that's where is ends. Once seated, we had to ask for food menus. We ordered a steak and the sea bass and a round of drinks. 2... More

We've been to The Bat and Ball today to celebrate my Mothers birthday lunch. The staff were very smiley and welcoming. We had a drink at the bar and we're then shown to our table. I had the kale salad followed by the chicken curry, they were both fine and I'd order them again. My brother had the cottage pie... More

Prices average, wine by the glass OK, good coffee. About £25 a head. Will certainly return, very good service... More

We ate here on 'Fish Friday', which was great. Lovely food and wine. The service was great too! I would strongly recommend, but be sure to book ahead!

We love the pub, great decor, comfortable and charming staf. Really looked forward to starting Easter on Maundy Thursday. Wine was good, delicious beer, and good service, but food was dire. Goujons had gristle in, so we were credited for two(out of 4), prawn curry was well cooked but everyone else was really upset with their main courses, such a... More

My daughter and I visited for lunch one day last week. As it was a lovely day we opted for the charcuterie board. Nice as far as it went but honestly, a bit light on content and presentation. Pricey for what it was and better value to be had at the Scarlet Arms in Walliswood. Needs to improve that one... More

Myself and an old uni mate came down to see an old friend in Billingshurst and spent most of our time at this country pub. Richard and Caroline were extremely welcoming and made me feel right at home at this warm and cosy pub. The food was absolutely brilliant (sunday dinner was to die for) and the decor was absolutely... More
