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

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

I've been to this pub quite a lot recently as it is truly welcoming and the staff are extremely friendly. The food menu is top class and the portions will fill most people. I especially love the warm fire in the winter months and it makes it very homely. I feel that this is the best pub in miles and... More

We were recommended to visit this pub at lunchtime by staff at H G Mathews where we'd been looking at wood burning stoves. We found the Blue Ball a delightful pub with plenty of atmosphere and a wood burning stove. The food was excellent and was good value. I would recommend the beer too.

If you can find the Blue Ball then you are in for a treat... a totally original menu covering everything from steak and kidney pudding to haggis and chips... includes the most enormous mixed grill on earth! super beer and very dog friendly

Always a good meal here, nice setting, approach road from Chesham overgrown. It can get busy, but it's well worth the wait. One of my favourites.
