"I wasn't going to bother joining while booking dinner at The Blue Ball for the first time. But I only had to add 'Yes' & my birthday & anniversary dates, so I did. Turned out that we absolutely loved the place, with it's thatched roof, beams & the different dining rooms, although we ate out on the Garden Terrace in the end as it was a lovely evening. Fab meal which got off to a good start with homemade bread & olives, a pint of Braunston Bitter & very drinkable Shiraz by the glass. So when an email offer arrived, we went back with a couple of friends. Then, before my birthday, they offered for a free bottle of Prosecco, so we booked up again. I like that they never bombard you, just occasional offers & what's on etc. Love it!" Sue Williams, Uppingham.


We love to see 2, 3 & even 4 generations sitting down to eat together at our country pub and restaurant - although the young ones sometimes also enjoy their own mini table and chairs in the garden terrace.

strong competiton with her energetic drawing called 'Firework Night'.
Summer's winnin entry is framed & on display on our children's corner until
the end of July. Summer has also won a Blue Ball voucher & art materials.

Well done Summer. Fantastic image! We love this competition, which is
judged by an artist, a member of staff and a customer & look forward to
this month's entries from children eating here with their families.
