I ordered a vegetarian buger for my wife. When the burger arrived my wife said it looked like a beef burger. I tasted it for her and it was. We told the waitress who said to my wife " you are not a vegetarian though" she said shes eaten some of it. I explained I had tasted it. I felt... More

We had a lovely meal at the Blue Ball on Thursday 17th August. 2 Adults and 1 x 9 year old. We ordered the food and sat in the garden. Food did'nt take too long to arrive and was very tasty. Friendly staff and everywhere clean and well kept.

I have been to the pub on quite a few occasions over the years and have always... More

8 of us ate here-starters, mains and desserts-loads of choice for all the family. Good value for money and good, friendly and helpful service. The waitress recommended the brownie for dessert, and...it was INCREDIBLE-you have to try it! A great place for a family celebration.

Went for a meal with elderly parents and our teenager. Attitude of staff was relaxed and friendly with a good dollop of humour. Ale was excellent and food fresh. Steak was cooked perfectly for my mother to eat even with her ailing teeth. Dogs allowed in bar made this feel like the real pub it is, but one where equal... More

Here for a family dinner during Folk Week where Sidmouth is very busy. Booked a table and our meal was a huge success. One of my party had a special burger topped with duck, another had steak and kidney pie, one had the whitebait whilst little me had the pea, salmon and prawn risotto. Everyone was satisfied with their food... More
