Description: Your first time here you might find us a little difficult to find as the pub is down an un-adopted lane in the bottom of a valley, backing on to the Bourne stream. "The Bat" is a traditional country/village pub retaining the charm and atmosphere of what a pub should be. An open fire, panelled walls, nooks and crannies, hops hanging from the old oak beams, cricketing memorabilia and six shining brass hand pumps for ale. Outside there is a covered patio area with grape vines overhead and a large garden with flower borders, a children’s play structure and plenty of seating. There is also a large car park.We offer a good and wholesome selection of light snacks, main meals and a mouth watering selection of homemade puddings and desserts. All our food is cooked and prepared in house by our team.Crossing the generations ,the pub is a meeting place for all and you will be sure of a genuine welcome

Visited for the England match on Sunday last weekend and was very impressed with the service and food, especially the young dark haired guy serving behind the bar who was very polite and helpful. Fantastic garden as well and a good atmosphere.

Great pub with excellent food and friendly staff. We went to Bat Fest on Friday and Saturday and had a brilliant time with great live music and a very lively and friendly atmosphere. The pub was extremely busy but the staff worked their socks off. This is a great pub for families and everyone in our family party really got into the spirit of Bat Fest and had two fabulous evenings.

This is the second year we have been to Bat-Fest and what a wonderful time we had, this time we decided to go on two nights. Friday evening the band were The Original who performed 3 great sets, Saturday we saw The Riots another great band we also had the burgers on this night and they were wonderful. Our most overriding memory was the service the place was heaving but the staff were so friendly and smiled all the time even under extreme pressure. However, don't think that the festival is the only reason we go there it a great country pub with good food, good service and wonderful management and friendly staff
