This review is for the Restaurant only and not the hotel. I have not been to this restaurant before but the people we went with had and told us it was busy but good and wouldn't be cheap. We were going for a family celebration a 40th birthday and we were really impressed. The menu was large and had something... More

We had a very pleasant stay at the Golden Ball. Very welcoming hosts, beautiful countryside, and nice clean rooms. From Boxworth we cycled along the guided bus route to St Ives (18 miles round trip) and Cambridge (30 miles round trip) which was a great way to see the countryside.

In this case, Golden Ball Inn is for you. I have absolutely enjoyed Friday evening with my BF - nice and tasty food, comfortable and relaxing surrounding, and what's most important for me - staff is not annoying at all - I hate when you come to restaurant, start enjoy your food and staff start jump around and ask you...

I found this hotel very comfortable and probably one of the best hotel beds I've stayed in. It is located in a rural area, so the noise is minimal and the accommodation is away from the main bar area. The breakfast was superb. The hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming.

As a family of 7, we have been visiting this restaurant at least 3 times a year for the past 10 years and previously had always been satisfied. The recent visit on Burns night 2015, which we had been saving up and planning for 3 months, was quite a shock to us all. We sat down for a meal at... More
