Excellent food and service. Recommend to all. Thankyou
For a country Pub we found the staff very attentive and all requests (mainly for beer!) were dealt with quickly. The food is good value and the quality is as expected. We dined in the garden on warm summers evening so no complaints there either. Will visit again very soon.
The Staff were very help full the food was very good the beer was a little bit on the cold side and a little bit flat for me cause I like a head on my beer but it was ok
The service was terrible you waited at least 25 minutes for someone to take your drinks order the food was plentiful but the beef was chewy the roast potatoes were dry and the skin was difficult to cut the vegetables were mixed some cooked well others raw no one asked if the food was ok not even when we were paying the bill nor were we asked if you wanted to see the desert menu
A really nice place to eat. Excellent food. Spotlessly clean. Friendly and efficient staff. Great surroundings and very Covid safe.
Great food. Just a bit of confusion and waiting about on arrival on where to seat us. We'd pre-booked and two separate members of staff were unsure where to put us in an almost empty restaurant - confusing to me too :-) However, this was resolved by who I think may have been the manager who arrived and seated us straight away.
Will definitely be back and would recommend.
Good meal. The standard of food is always very good. Service was good , as usual.
Overcooked tough beef, hard parsnips, booked table for 5pm as they close at 6pm, was told when we arrived by a barman that he was just about to close the kitchen... really welcoming.
Went for a Sunday lunch and wasn't disappointed great service, friendly staff and the food was delicious. The only one thing I will say is I think for the price all roast should be served with a Yorkshire pudding.
Will definitely be returning
When I complained that my roast lamb was very fatty the waitress was very attentive and I was given a free pudding.
Good menu. Quality local food. Friendly but non intrusive service.
Good price for quality food.
Very good Sunday lunch with friends
Food was superb
Service under COVID rules was very good
Good food and nice surroundings. Felt that Covid rules were appropriately applied
Fantastic service, great choice on menu and taste food! Perfect, perfect, perfect!!
I love the Sunday roast here... definitely one of the best in the area! The garden area is very well covered so no need to worry if it rains. Very dog friendly too.
We arrived group of 5 was shone Are table service good all night staff all friendly food very good
Good beer and a useful awning outside. Slow service and slightly disappointing food considering the price. Would return for some drinks but probably pass on food in future.
Lovely ambiance,really efficient team members who can’t do enough for you.
Considering we are only able to dine outside at the moment, the setting was beautiful. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the tent, lights, heaters and wooden huts were brilliant for all weather. The food was lovely.
Thank you we will definitely be back!
Great food and staff... would definitely go again
Waiters were super friendly , the woooden hut they gave us to sit in was great for our date , couldn’t ask for anything better.
Even though we had to sit outside we enjoyed everything at The Blue Ball pub and would definitely go again. Food , service and place itself was excellent and good value for money.
Well thought out, safe, popular and good value Sunday lunch.
First time eating here very enjoyable food was lovely and service great will return
Given the restrictions it was absolutely fine and staff were very helpful. We needed 2 tables of 6 and management went all out to get us together. Excellent.
Fantastic service and great food! I'm a big fella and couldn't finish the haddock and chips :)
Poor service, rude staff.
Both tables had incorrect bills with additional food and drinks added.
Great outdoor large covered section, and cute little huts you can book too.
Only had the squid but was cooked perfectly!
Efficient service and nice ambiance.
A lovely evening with great food and great service, only downside was not being able to order hot drinks.
Fab as always
Great Roast!one of the best. Good value for money.
It was one of the best carverys that we have eaten, absolutely delicious! 💯
Great good , great service. The huts are great ! Very warm
Great food, service and staff. Overall a lovely place. Would 100% recommend!
Saturday lunchtime: lovely food, friendly staff, good service and lucky to get cabin with a heater!
Great food and drink and lovely to sit outside under the awning with twinkly lights above! My only thought would possibly be to consider heaters in the main area.
Very good outdoor space, with outside bar. Many picnic tables, well spaced, and a large undercover decking area that was reassuringly dry during a heavy rainstorm.
Staff were relaxed, friendly, and attentive.
Lunch menu was a cut above normal pub fare. Exceeded expectations.
A very positive experience for our first venture out for a while.
Great outdoor experience well
Spaced out and organised
Great food, good service. Nice outside seating area
Perfect setting, good and service as always - really good covid ‘amendments’
