I can't actually rate Balloo House highly enough. The food as you would expect is so good. The ambiance in the upstairs restaurant is intimate and relaxing. There is a great choice of wine to match with the food and the service is attentive without...More

Attended for lunch from Christmas menu. Everything was outstanding, food, service, atmosphere and excellent value for money. Their flavours are just that more complex and menu is very original and changes regularly with each season. The service is always spot on, they have it down...More

Went for dinner and as usual not disappointed! Service excellent, starter and main course both to high standards enjoyed every bite and very reasonably priced.Only complaint would be house wine £20 a little steep. As every trip we loved it.

Lovely staff, extensive menu - something for everyone and fairly priced unless you have steak (£25.00) not including side. Setting and decor lends itself more towards a winter venue - turf fire in bar etc. That said really enjoyed visit last night- front of house...More

Balloo House Restaurant has a lovely ambience. Leisurely seating area for pre dinner drinks next to a cheery fire sets the scene for your evening. An attentive and knowledgable maitre d' ensured that the dietary requirements of one of our party were well met. In...More
