Fantastic place, beautiful scenery, helpful and friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us. Every course was amazing and you were offered to try the local beer. The icing on the cake for us was Alex James' cheese! Would recommend to anyone. A****

Finally got to make a overnight stay booking at this great little Quantock Pub. We have had meals here before when out walking and always promised ourselves an overnight stay which we finally got around to doing in our busy lives. We live in Somerset and this was a great place to go for a local night away. The pub... More

After a somewhat perilous (but scenic) journey down a road we were later informed was called 'suicide lane' we arrived at the homely looking Blue Ball Inn. Kieran the owner showed us round, and offered to drive us to the function and back later that evening- very helpful given aforementioned suicide lane. This level of service and attention continued through... More

A converted barn? No ground floor windows so wasnt sure if open when we pulled up. Pushing the door open and walking up the wooden stairs you walk into a beautiful ye olde pub with wooden beams and a view of the hills. Staff were nice. One girl was putting up with two extremely snobby women complaining about their spritzers..... More

We have just come back from a trip to Devon, staying for a couple of nights at the Blue Ball Inn at Triscombe, a little hamlet right in the countryside not far from Taunton. What a wonderful little gem! A lovely room, with all the little comforts you need. The staff were welcoming, helpful, knowledgable and friendly. The restaurant had... More

This Inn is a real delight. The owners and staff are welcoming and absolutely charming. If you are lucky enough to stay in the room called 'Stag' then you are in for a treat. The 'room' is a small thatched cottage with the bedroom downstairs complete with inglenook fireplace and the huge bathroom is up a winding staircase with a... More

Amazing location, amazing food and amazing staff. The Blue Ball achieves where many pub/restaurants fail in creating excellence without becoming pretentious and that's why we keep going back. Keep up the good work!
