I'm a member of a walking group that meets towards the end of every month and our walk always end with lunch in a pub. It's many years since I was last at the Blue Ball in Asheridge and I think in those days food was not such an important part of the offering. About sixteen of us arrived for... More

We went for a meal to celebrate 3 April birthdays and took my 11 year old daughter with us. Had a lovely meal. Great food & relaxed atmosphere. Stayed late playing dominoes. Highly recommended.

And this is a place you do have to search for-leave the middle of Chesham on the Bellingdon road, past the mosque on the left, then 100 yards or so later, turn left on to the road to Asheridge. You pass the industrial estate, then when the 30mph limit changes to a derestricted limit, the road shrinks to half the... More

You can keep your "Bisto" pubs and your chain restaurants. If you like good pub food, at very reasonable prices, then you will not go wrong here! Be warned though, if you have a starter, you will struggle to eat your main course as the portions are not meagre in any sense. We have been here about 3 times and... More

Quite simply a wonderful public house. Margaret is a superb host, as is Libby and the rest of the staff. They always have a smile and are very welcoming. How many pubs have a chef that comes and checks that you are happy with the food......? This pub does. We have never been anything but very contented with the food... More

Very warm in the table area and very busy. We were a group of 12 or so and orders taken and all brought out together so no one left waiting nice touch and... More

When visiting the area we have been to the Blue Ball a few times and been happy. This time it was disappointing and a bit of a mixed-bag. Service and beer was good. Food was varied. The main issue was the pie of the day...it was only just warm and the pastry on the base wasn't cooked & was soggy.... More

How "disappointed " are we that you said nothing to us on the day ! We don't know who you were, where you sat, what pie it was or who prepared it ! We do about 1000 meals a mth and try our best to get them all right if you had spoken to us we would most certainly have... More
