Visited again today in the middle of Sunday afternoon for the carvery lunch. Great value especially if you pay the 'senior' price of £7.95 (£1 reduction). Choice of three well cooked meats, pork especially tender with great crackling. Big selection of vegetables, Yorkshire Puds, sauces etc etc really hard to fault at any price. Highly recommended. Served from 12 noon... More

I took my mum and dad for a meal a week ago tuesday. My mum has problems swallowing and wanted a bit of grilled fish with a sauce. This was not on the menu so i thought i would ask. They could not have been more helpful. She had a lovely grilled fish and my dad and i both had... More

Fabulous restaurant with delicious food! We all chose from the specials board and the food was fresh and tasty! Disappointed that we only discovered this place on the last night of our holiday - if not, we'd have returned again and again! (Accommodated dog & children!)

This is the second visit in the last twelve months. We were here from Spain for our friends wedding later in the week. We decided to come back earlier and spend some time in the area. We find the Blue Ball to be a very welcoming place, lovely bedrooms which are very comfortable. The bar and the restaurant offer good... More

Passed the place a few times in the week. Didn't look that big from outside but I noticed the car park was usually busy to full. Took a chance last Friday night, 4 adults, 2 children, no reservation, looking for a meal. Opened the front door and was suprised at how big the place was. On asking, we were given... More

.....provided that you don't mind sleeping with all ( double glazed ) windows tightly closed , to keep out the noise of traffic travelling remarkably close to most of the bedrooms . These bedrooms are spacious and well furnished , and the breakfasts during my four-day stay uniformly excellent . The enormous restaurant/bar on the ground floor was crowded each... More

Arrived without a booking. Staff welcoming and friendly . Good menu, large portions ,too large for the kids, one between two 6 year olds would be more than enough. £7 for a child's dinner is fine when you see how much they get. Maybe a bit overwhelming for the average small person. Excellent staff and service. Thanks

A thatched pub with well tended gardens and hanging baskets galore. Inside is dark and stone floored a bygone experience. Sadly the food quality isn't more than adequate and that's a shame in so far as it doesn't match it's surroundings. Value wise it's par for the resort of Sidmouth but I'd use the Salty Monk down the road for... More

The Blue Ball Inn has well appointed clean rooms with friendly staff and an excellent choice of food. Ask for a room at the back if road noise bothers you there is no pool or fitness centre so ignore ratings for these

We booked the blue ball Inn for a party of 15 and we were served by several staff including Pauline. The service was fab, cool & calm (perfect when you have 15 people tweaking every single order to the healthier alternative) - we were each given a Spoon so we didn't have to pay before and could simply pay for...
