Business overview

Here at the Blue Ball Inn we pride ourselves in providing an unhurried and attentive but unobtrusive dining experience using the finest, locally sourced ingredients from farmers, growers and merchants who care as much about the quality and welfare of their produce as we do.

Beneath the A-frame wooden ceilings of our converted 18th-century thatched barn you will find a welcome as warm as the bar's three fires and below this a kitchen team that has earned the Inn an enviable reputation as one of Somerset's finest.

As well as a multi award winning restaurant our location, which some say the word "tranquil" was invented for, makes us an ideal base from which to explore the picturesque Quantock Hills. We boast exceptional accommodation; a self contained family cottage and two double rooms which are available for bed and breakfast overnight stays or long breaks, a beautiful garden for alfresco dining during the summer months and our own bridge - the views from which are stunning.

A fantastic hidden gem. Accommodation, food & service all superb.

We visited this friendly country pub in July 2011, staying for two nights in one of their beautiful holiday let cottages. From the moment we arrived we were treated like family and this continued throughout our stay, not only from all the staff but from the locals too. Although we were staying in a self catering cottage we decided to eat from the pub/restaurants superb menu, the food could not be faulted in any way: produce is all sourced locally but without the pomp and ceremony of some establishments, everything is made on the premises and cooked and presented as well as anything you will find in over-priced, fancy London restaurants and tastes every bit as good. We enjoyed the place (including the local walks & scenery) so much we seriously considered extending our stay, only for work commitments to get in the way. We will definitely be visiting again in the near future and would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice relaxing and friendly get away.
