About the Pub

This family run (two generations) 150-year-old country pub and free house lies in the Bourne Valley near Farnham. The main bar has a wood burning stove, panelled walls and oak beams. There are several different rooms, a covered patio with grape vines, a large terraced garden and a fenced children's play area popular with families. Several footpaths lead to the pub. By car, access is via a narrow unadopted road, which leads to a large car park. The four regular and two guest cask ales are listed on a blackboard, including their strengths. The pub has a good reputation for serving top quality locally sourced food. An annual beer festival is held early-mid June (usually the weekend before Father's Day). A weekly quiz is held on Tuesdays and live music once a month.

Historic Interest

Believed to be 150 years old. It was then one of two buildings in the valley which in those days was dedicated to the growing of hops for the local breweries in Farnham and Alton. The 'Bat' was once a hop grower's tally office where pickers in the surrounding fields were paid in tokens. To maximise income, tokens were redeemable against beer available on the premises and a pub was born.
