I made the bookings online and got a reply saying someone will contact me regarding my bookings, but no one did. When we got their they had no data of my bookings and had to wait two hours for a ping pong table. Nevertheless amazing customer service and have some star bar attendees visited The Bat And Ball on 26 Nov 2016

Had a great time for a colleagues leaving drinks. Staff were so helpful in reserving a drinks area and a ping pong table. Things got very competitive! We had so much fun and loved the atmosphere and music. Staff were friendly and laughed at our antics. Highly recommend for a group night out. visited The Bat And Ball on 25 Nov 2016

We had two tables for 16 People with a Games Master. We thought the second table was wasted, We had to ask him to set us up on the second table with Beer Pong. We were expecting a more inclusive set of games some of us only got to play one game. Overall a good night out. visited The Bat And Ball on 14 Nov 2016

We arrived and was sent upstairs as I had booked. When we arrived upstairs we were sent back downstairs as I had booked for food. We were given option of sitting upstairs at the tables with stools which we didn't want. Our table wasn't reserved downstairs, but we were allowed to choose one of three benches that were free. I'm afraid two of my party were not well after their meal, one had chips and chilli beef and the other had nacho's with the chilli beef, so we assumed the something must have been wrong with the chilli beef which is why we have given a low score :( All of us (9 people) did not like the benches as they did not move, it meant moving people to get out or some couldn't even get out until they slid to the edge, if they could fit the legs between the gaps! A few of us had skirts on not very lady like, but then maybe we should have come dressed more sporty. One Waitress dropped white sauce down a friends back by accident, she did clear it up and was very apologetic. I personally had the pizza and really enjoyed it, as did two others who chose pizza. The ping pong looks great but we did not want to play on that occasion. Our waitress was lovely and had a great memory who we did tip despite our experience. Sadly with so many restaurants in Westfield, I doubt we'll be back in a hurry :( but I do hope you take this as feedback to improve and not in a totally negative way. visited The Bat And Ball on 08 Nov 2016

Normally I really like this place, but this Saturday was the first time we decided to book a table to watch the match as I specifically request. They gave as a really nice table in front of the screen but it happened that after we ordered the food and drinks they showed the match with not sound which it was so disappointing (Added to that we had to pay in advance that never happened and drink in plastic glasses). Then we had to move with all our food and stuffs to a room in a really small table and it was really cold.... visited The Bat And Ball on 05 Nov 2016

It was only let down by the very poor lighting which got dimmer at 6pm. We were told the staff couldn't do anything about it, but how are supposed to play in very poor light?? visited The Bat And Ball on 01 Nov 2016

The night started off like this, we had 2 tables booked at 8 pm. The tables were handed over to us but there were so many people around the table it made it impossible to play properly and not to mention that the light was bad, no where near enough to play table tennis without struggling to see the ball. After we played for on e hour we booked a different table for another hour. We went there to get our table and there were 8 fellas, very drunk, playing beer pong . . . beer all over the table and because they double booked that table we couldn't get it in time. The staff was not very helpful in this situation. After finally getting the table when we were about to start playing they switched off even the poor lights, so at this point we just had some ambient lights which made it impossible to play. Thinking this is a mistake or something we went to the staff and asked them for the lights to be switched back on. At this point the woman that was doing the booking started to laugh at us and told us that they can't and that it's Saturday night. After this I asked why would they take our money for a ping pong table and not give us the opportunity to play, after half an our they agreed to give us a refund for the last table and we went in Shoreditch. Conclusion ? Awful and expensive place to play ping pong but might be ok if you looking for drinks and snacks. visited The Bat And Ball on 22 Oct 2016

The upstairs area where our tables were was very hot. We spoke to the staff who said the heating was broken. It was extremely uncomfortable and we unfortunately had to stop playing after an hour instead of two. My first drink was also flat, and when I asked for a new drink the bartender argued with me about it, however another member of staff then replaced my drink. We also waited a very long time for our pizzas as we were forgotten about. visited The Bat And Ball on 21 Oct 2016

Mixed reviews to be honest.. I had a good time despite flaws in the service offered. I'm incredibly impressed with the young Asian lady at the door and she is a credit to your venue. It took a while before we actually got served at my table..fyi we waited so long that we actually went to the bar and order our drinks. The young lady servicing us was polite and professional at all times but was slow ;( we could have drunk a bit more but the follow up on our table was slow I'm afraid. Once we ordered our food which was basically 2 platters which only one came out. We queried this with the server which wasn't our waitress and she said she would check. After a while she didn't come back to us and I had to find the Asian lady to follow this up. Overall we kept on chasing to be served which slightly annoyed me but the food was great and overall not a bad night. visited The Bat And Ball on 14 Oct 2016

I visited on A Saturday afternoon with a group booking. The place itself is good, the seating areas around the table are a little awkward with no place to put drinks. However good ambience and fun games. Now the bad bit, we were told booking could be extended once at the venue, when we arrived we were told someone had booked our table for half hour after we finished, which was no problem and the person serving said as long as you don't over run into the time of the next person - I said we would be off within 15 minutes of our time so they can do the necessary, all happy so far. Then we are having fun playing beer pong and an incredibly rude lady came to our table and said without introduction "you have 5 minutes to get off" I looked at my watch and it was exactly 5 minutes to our time run out, but I told her what the other lady that worked there said - no worries if we slightly over run - just be aware someone has it book for half hour over our time so ok to overrun but don't take the p. The new lady then returned and said "ok your time is up now, finish your game and get off" I asked her if she spoke to the other lady and she said "we are trying to run a business here" I then informed her that our group were all paying customers and contributing greatly to her business that night, she raised her eyebrows and trotted off. I immediately moved from the table at the request and proceeded to finish our drinks at the bar, where were observed our table sitting empty and untouched for 20 minutes, by staff. The next group arrived a full 15 minutes after that. Would have gone back to this place almost monthly with a large group, but now because of this staff member attitude and condescending behaviour we will not go back. Majority of other staff members were friendly and helpful but this one is letting the side down. ry_no16 visited The Bat And Ball on 08 Oct 2016
