On our Festive menu it does state that they are dough balls and not donut balls. I do apologise they were not to your liking. Thank you for your feedback and I will filter it further up the tree.

Description
Whether you’re up for a party, watching sport or meeting with friends and family for a bite to eat, the The Inn by the Sea in Lee On The Solent is the place to relax and unwind. We’ve something for all the family – from our freshly carved, slow cooked roasts exactly how you like them, tasty pub food classics such as hand battered fish and steak and ale pie – all available on any day of the week. What’s more, every day we make our own fresh dough so you can tuck into freshly made stone baked pizzas and garlic bread. Or, we have a range of burgers and vegetarian dishes – and all main courses come with unlimited veg, salad and sides. With every plateful offering cracking value, it's no wonder locals in and around Gosport, Fareham and Hill Head can't get enough.
