We went to the blue ball with family for a Sunday lunch, having checked their website to make sure they were family friendly (I don't expect that children are welcome everywhere, some places lack the facilities or just choose to be a childless environment, which is absolutely fine). We arrive to find they have no high chairs so we had... More

For a start we have been here for 10 years and have never had a website ! So have not ever advertised to be a family pub anywhere. Although well behaved children are welcome. We did do spaghetti without the chilli and rocket sauce for you (not spaghetti bolognaise), you were also offered a child size portion of cod and... More

The owner / chef is the singularly rudest and most aggressive man I have ever met running a restaurant anywhere, ever. I will never go back and suggest you avoid the place. Seriously angry man !!!

We were 4 adults and one child on 19/9 Monday lunch. After seeing the negative reviews in here, we were report that our main meals and desserts were as excellent as our previous visits. The mixed grill was moist and succulent, and the banoffee pie was mouth watering.

We came for 3 reasons; to have lunch, to check it out as a place to bring family visiting from abroad and to decide on its suitability as a meeting place for social occasions (I organise events). We had our dog with us on a lead and the barmaid confirmed we could bring her inside. I'd just collected the menus... More

We had a great three generations family lunch here. We sat out side in the large garden. The toddler ran round the field and looked at the pony and the grand parents sat back in the shade. Good food, large portion sizes. Amount scaled down for little one, but still big! She loved the dog roaming around.

My son and I decided to go to the blue ball for lunch. when I was trying to order, I asked what one of the dishes came with and the male owner of the restaurant rudely interrupted with sarcastic remarks. I overlooked this rudeness and ordered my food. shortly after my food was served (if you could call it food).I... More

How very disappointing. We called into The Blue Ball when passing recently for a summer lunch. The place was fairly busy,but a bit dated.This can sometimes mean a good thing. However not this time. The lady behind the counter was surly and very matter of fact.Perhaps a bit tired and in need of a break.Whilst we do not expect someone... More

A full on day of fun rounded off with an excellent evening spent in the wonderful gardens at the Blue Ball our old stomping ground. Great food with large portions all washed down with lashings of well kept beer. The bar staff looked after us well until it was time to hit the trail once more back to our tents.... More

Stumbled across this great pub whilst out for a drive. Great food and a lovely open back garden that kids would delight in! Will certainly return for a more substantial meal - this time we had sandwiches and chips and sat in the garden enjoying the all too brief sunshine. Lovely. If you are in the area and it's sunny...
