We hoped to eat at The Blue Ball Inn but they were not serving food until Thursday the 25th. The landlord however was brilliant - he gave us the names of alternative pubs/restaurants and even offered to ring and confirm if they had space for us. That's what I call excellent customer service and we didn't even buy a drink!!... More

Having read some great reviews and booked way in advance in mid May (online), when we arrived on Friday 19th August we were met by Ian, the new owner who apologised that he had no record of our booking and had no rooms for us Friday and Saturday night. Luckily I had family about 45 mins drive away as there... More

Delicious selfmade Burgers with selfmade sauces, I would really recommend the lamb burger and a Pale Ale or two. The Environment is typically English

We had booked a table with friends for Saturday night. When we arrived we could not believe that the only choice of food was a variety of beef burgers. We do not like burgers and therefore did not stay to eat. We were very disappointed as you used to have such a lovely varied menu and cannot understand why you... More

We only stopped here for a coffee but the setting is beautiful and the decor/furnishings are wonderfully classic and comfortable. I'd love to have stayed here..perhaps next time.
