Are you on "the world's biggest ale trail?" Or just enjoy a good pint of real ale?

Our Blue Ball Braunston Bitter is brewed for us by Marstons. We rotate our Real Ales on Hand Pumps so there's always 2 or 3 to choose from. EPA remains popular, as does Banks's. I remember Banks's slogan from my Birmingham days, many moons ago - "Unspoilt By Progress".

Not an unfitting tag for The Blue Ball at Braunston Pub & Restaurant either really... as I sit typing on an iPad in this historic thatched 17th century country inn with original beams, inglenook and log fires crackling in this pretty little village near Oakham.

For serious ale sippers check out the CaskFinder App - to pinpoint & visit some of the best pubs in Britain - or closer to home in Rutland - who, like The Blue Ball at Braunston, have achieved the coveted Cask Marque Award for their well kept real ales...
