I have been a potential guest at the blue ball with a family who got refused entry to the restaurant because it was 5mins after their recommended....no children time! Thats fair enough, we understood we were too late. Now in fairness, we could see it was a lovely place but MY grievance is the abrupt approach by a female who... More

What a shame you can't see my side of the situation! Which was to get to you all quickly so that you did'nt sit down and make yourselves comfortable and then tell you no children after 6pm! Good PR I'd say!! As for our ruining our business perhaps people leaving not 1 but 2 terrible and unfair reviews would be... More

We had a lovely meal but on the table next door there were two very large smelly dogs It would be nice to restrict the dogs to one part of the restaurant if they have to be there at all

I am sorry our policy of no young children after six o'clock does not suit you, but having been in the pub trade for 26 years and a pub user all my adult life I am a firm believer that public houses should be predominately for adults, so although we do allow children in through the day we don't in...

We've been to the Blue Ball a few times now and always had great food. The usual selection of pub food is complimented with fantastic specials. A lovely outside area is perfect for a mid-walk pint. The staff are always friendly and helpful.

I have been to the Blue Ball many times and never had a bad meal there is always good size portions well cooked and presented. If you have never been give it a try great for everyday food, the fish and chips is very good.

I went with family to the Blue Ball last night for the first time following a recommendation from a friend. I was not disappointed. I did look at the mixed reviews on here before going but as our hosts were paying it was their choice. We arrived at 19:00 (five adults) and was met with quite a busy car park... More

Very busy, had to sit in garden which is very large. Once moved inside, very nice. We were quite a large party and the food was very good and plenty of it. Nice venue, good service and large portions, so go hungry!!

We came here for Father's Day and had a great meal. The quality is consistently good whenever and whatever the occasion and when the sun is shining, there's a nice garden area where you can sit and relax. All in all, it's one of the nicest pub restaurants around the Chesham area.

We recently to the blue ball, traditional pub lots of room in the garden so great for families in the summer. Traditional British food served here, no starters but you can see why when you get the mountainous plateful, which is daunting to see to say the least. So If your after average food and piles of it , this... More
