The Blue Ball is our local and we eat here regularly! The food is always great, never disappointing and staff friendly. We often bring family and friends to enjoy the classic pub grub. My only complaint is that the portions are so generous I rarely have room for pudding. Highly recommended.

Visited with a friend for lunch, and was glad to see there was a lighter option, as I remember before. A plate full!! Tons of salad! We had the fishcakes. Very nice, but I had 3 bones in one of mine. Put me off! It is a lovely setting, and the menu is vast. Just good pub food.

The food in this pub is excellent. We visit regularly and find that several of our group find the portions too large. We would like to have the option of smaller portions; we would then consider having a dessert!

We went as a family for dinner and also as a couple on another occasion. Contrary to some other negative comments about the staff, they are all very pleasant and do a good job. Service is prompt and efficient. The landlord and landlady are welcoming, personable people who are always around and to ensure you are being looked after. There... More

Arrived for pre-booked lunch on a Saturday minutes after a power cut had been fixed and were fearful of the consequences. However, really pleasant and helpful staff reassured us and, sure enough, there were no problems and they overcame the difficulties with glory! Good proper pub food with good portions. Wish I had realised this beforehand as I went for... More

Good food , lovely staff, good beer and no "kids / spoiled" parents after dark. Have walked to / from and around this pub for many years. A current most favorite.

We often visit this country pub. It's really nice to find a pub that serves great food, it's not fancy or pretends to be something it's not. Just consistently good quality and good value with the added bonus ( for me anyway ) that children are not allowed in the bar in the evening. That said there's a lovely garden... More

Lovely food also good to find a pub that doesn't have children after 6 pm. But why have dogs running about in the eating area this spoilt what should have been a lovely experience
