instant community when I walked in the door

we popped in to this pub by chance when we saw a sign on the main road to Taunton. We noticed quite a few flashy cars outside and this is a place in the middle of nowhere so to speak. I don't know what the building was before, maybe converted stables, but the bar is actually upstairs. No sooner... read more

We've eaten and stayed at The Blue Ball a few times and always enjoyed this. Last month we booked a stay here, but unfortunately eleven days before this we had to cancel. On the website, it says one weeks' notice is required to receive the £45 deposit back. One month later and several emails - one response three weeks ago... More

Called in on the off chance on a Sunday lunchtime. Pub busy but they found a table for two. Unusual but pleasant layout and well trained staff. Excellent roast beef, real gravy and Yorkshire puds! . Beef was medium rare with good flavour and a little fat, just how it should be. Beer garden looked lovely and the location on... More

A typical pub/restaurant, with a quirky gallery bar. Good venue after a country walk. The Sunday lunch was average, with a reasonable choice of dessert

We were on our way back from Minehead and found this pub along the way. First it doesn't really look like your typical British pub. The inside is surprisingly very different and looks like an Alpine refuge or a Swiss altitude chalet. The food was excellent, local cyclists and hikers around, great beer garden surrounded by bucolic nature. If I... More

For main course we had Lemon Sole, Lemon&Thyme roasted chicken, Duck Confit Salad, Venison & Hare Bolognaise and Rabbit, Chicken & Bacon Carbonara - all of which were great. For dessert we had Sticky toffee pudding, Rhubarb Brulee and Dark Chocolate Torte... More
