The Bat & Ball, Breamore

The Bat & Ball, Breamore

Nestled on the very edge of the New Forest National Park, this charming country pub is the perfect place to take off those muddy walking boots after a long day of exploring and to treat yourself to a local pint of ale and warm up next to the roaring fire. A mixture of locals and visitor gravitate towards this friendly hub which boasts a warm and welcoming atmosphere for everyone.

Specialising in traditional pub favourites with a unique African twist on an extensive menu, there is something for everyone to enjoy at this homely establishment. Tuck into some home favourites such as steaks, burgers, sausages and mash, fish and chips and a generous ploughman’s or perhaps have a taste of Africa in the form of Beef Bobotie, a lightly curried beef with sultanas and a golden baked bread topping. For lighter mains, there is also a choice of various salads and pasta including a vegetarian Gorgonzola & Walnut Tagliatelle – yum!

There are a variety of starters and light bites to choose from if you’re after a quick snack but be sure to check the ever-evolving Special boards to see what culinary treats are being served on the day. Of course one must never forget that all important Pudding Board which changes on a daily basis, making good use of the seasonal produce and keeping your sweet tooth on its toes.

With this country pub’s extensive and tasty menu, with vegan and vegetarian options, as well as the choice of having OAP portions, there is something for the whole family at The Bat & Ball – and if you can’t find something that suits your needs be sure to ask the always smiling and patient staff who can help you navigate the menu.
