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

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

We stayed for 4 nights at the Blue Ball Inn whilst playing golf in the area. The Blue Ball offers excellent en-suite rooms,good parking,with good food and drink in the pub. Every morning we looked forward to their lovely breakfast,and ate very well in their restaurant the night before.

Today we went to the Blue Ball Inn for our lunch. Hubby & I were so impressed with the amazing gluten free varied options on the menu! We were even told that anything on the specials board we liked the look of the chef could adapt to be gluten free, too! We really enjoyed our choices, too! Service great as... More

Our welcome was the most friendly attentive one I have experienced for some time. Specials board is worth investigating. Service was good and the food lived up to expectations. Large car park which is just as well as there is nowhere else to park on this busy road to Lymme Regis. Great selection of real ales.
