Just had lunch at blue ball. 2 prawn cocktails to start. Prawns ok, not enough sauce, lettuce full of water, no lemon wedge, miserable tomato/cucumber garish. Mains: steak and kidney pudding. Too much suet pastry, not enough meat (disappointing as they used to do the best around). Chips overcooked and full of grease. Annihilated vegetables. Spare ribs: emphasis on quantity rather than quality in this dish. Salad garnish was ok, chips poor, ribs ok, sauce was homemade but had a lot of fat in it, coleslaw was poor. Would have mentioned problems to waitress but no check back until we 'finished'. We ate till we were full because we were hungry, but nothing made us want to return. Decor and cleanliness were good.
