A traditional family-run pub, The Bat & Ball is situated along a secluded country lane just outside Farnham. As a freehouse, The Bat & Ball can choose its own ales and, as such, guests are offered a varied selection that’s always changing. Why not sample a beer from one of the six hand pumps?
Inside, roaring fires and exposed brick walls create a cosy atmosphere while the garden – with its outdoor seating and play area – provides the perfect place to soak up the sun. When it comes to food, The Bat & Ball focuses on serving seasonal local produce – this helps ensure the high quality and delicious flavour of each dish. For those visiting at lunchtime, the baps menu lists a selection of freshly made sandwiches, while the afternoon menu includes various small plates and snacks – the Parma ham and halloumi panzanella is a summertime favourite and the devilled whitebait is perfectly cooked and crispy. If you’re choosing from the main menu, you can expect to find hearty plates such as fisherman’s pie and cowboy mac and cheese, as well as satisfying vegetarian plates like sumptuous slow-braised jackfruit moussaka and a beetroot falafel burger. Bring a few friends and try this friendly local pub out for yourself.
