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.

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...

As a family, this is our main choice for birthday meals etc. Very generous portions and always wonderful food. Prices are very reasonable and the staff are always polite and welcoming. Beautiful surroundings.

Just what we needed Good value pub food. Not trying to be grand or gastro. Husband's mixed grill had lots of choice and my ribs were great. Wished I had chosen the fish and chips that arrived on neighbouring table as it looked lovely. Great friendly service

We enjoyed a leisurely evening in this delightful pub. There was no pressure to rush but our generous, tasty meals were served quickly. We'll be returning. :-)
