Returning to the Blue Ball for the third or fourth time, my earlier views about the quality of this pub restaurant were reconfirmed. Unpretentious, dog friendly, the Blue Ball has a lot going for it but top of the list must be the excellent pub...More

Lovely chicken, avocado, bacon salad £11.00, very fresh, quick service, pleasant staff, lots of parking in the rear. Rest of the menu offered a good selection to suit most people with varying price levels

I regularly both eat and drink in this pub. I am the worlds biggest skeptic of special offers and bargains.....Not so with the 'Steak and a pint for a tenner' offer that the owners Carl and Margaret have on at the moment. Amazing value for...More
