I couldn't find a reason to give the Blue Ball four stars, hence five. We visited for dinner on 25 April and found the car park full - inconvenient, but indicative of a popular establishment. My fish was cooked to perfection and my wife was very pleased with her confit of duck. The vegetables were served in sensible portions rather... More

Booked a table of 6 last night for a family meal, haven't been to the blue ball for a while but it was absolutely brilliant. The service was class, the lamb rack I had was lovely and everyone else was very pleased with their food. Really impressed, the pub looks really well done out and is in a lovely setting.... More

Called with a friend midweek and had a lovely lunch. Good menu choice and friendly staff. We all chose the curry which was very tasty and and cooked perfectly. Everything very clean, service good and stunning views.

The menu was quite varied & there were several choices that were gluten free, the table looked very nice and the food was absolutely delicious. We had... More

Have visited Saturday evening & Sunday lunchtime, eaten on both these occasions. On the Saturday evening, we had to wait a little while as my husband had a porterhouse steak, they apologised, saying the steak was thicker than usual, so took longer to cook. We fully understood this, so it was not a problem. Food was lovely. Only complaint, was,... More
