It doesn't get more local than this... No need to hop off to Harrods to get your hands on a few samples of award winning Rutland Charcuterie. Try a Tasting Board at The Blue Ball at Braunston - practically on the doorstep of where it's made!

Rutland Charcuterie HQ at Chestnut Farm in Braunston, where Nick & Nicky Brake produce their superb range of salamis and air dried meats, is only a stone's throw from the historic Blue Ball at Braunston - Country Pub & Kitchen.

This historic, thatched country inn has been offering hospitality since the 17th Century and today, under landlords Dominic & Pip, serves a range of Pub Classics & Modern British Cuisine with a few tasty twists.

Although a relative newcomer by comparison, Rutland Charcuterie has already won a clutch of awards for its specialist products.

Why not try a taste of Rutland Prosciutto and a selection of speciality artisan charcuterie at Rutland's Oldest Inn - The Blue Ball at Braunston - where a real log fire still burns in the Inglenook on chilly autumn days.

What better place to sit and sample a Rutland Charcuterie Tasting Board, award winning cask ales, world wines and fresh, and seasonal, local food cooked fresh to order?

And, while you're there, take advantage of their Buy One, Get One Free Dessert Offer to round your visit off with a homemade Sticky Toffee Pudding, Strawberry Soufflé or perhaps a Yuzu Citrus Tart with Green Tea Ice Cream.

Dessert Offer available Tues - Sat 21st-29th October.
Just mention the BOGOF OFFER to claim yours!

Gotta love our customers, friends ("fiends") and staff for getting into the spirit of things & pulling out all the stops to guarantee a great Halloween Party last night.

Tastebud tingling thanks to guest chef, Somjai, for her Thai Special Board. The deceptively simple fresh flavour balances she creates are stunning.

Back by popular demand, brilliant live band Bodgers Mate never disappoint & had the joint jumping. And, unasked, Keith and Mac went the extra mile plus one step beyond on the lighting and props front to help us transform cosy country restaurant into haunted Halloween inn. Cheers guys.

But the thing that totally made it was all the fantastic folk who contributed to the fun and friendly atmosphere. Such a laugh. And we can all use of that cheering medicine as the nights draw in....
