About 40 of us visited the Bat & Ball today after a forest walk. The food was excellent as was the service by the friendly staff. The portions were very generous and we all enjoyed the lunch, the atmosphere was good and we would have no hesitation in recommending and look forward to returning again soon. Another added bonus was that the pub was very dog friendly. Thank you to all the staff who looked after us all.

Visited this pub for the first time, and have since already returned within a week!
Really good friendly atmosphere, with great staff who are a real credit to the pub.

Our little one has a dairy allergy which can be slightly problematic when it comes to eating out. The bat and ball had a good selection of things she could eat - and she loved it.

We tried the lasagna, chicken with pasta in a creamy sauce, and ragu for the little one. All were very very good. Huge portions too.

The second time we returned was for the Sunday roast. Again, there were no complaints! Nice homemade gravy too.

Nice large beer garden with a small kids slide. Plenty of room to kick a football around too.

Would visit again when we return to the New Forest.
