We visited Ball's for the first time in February 2016 and I have to say me and my daughter were delighted with our new find? Excellent service from Garry and absolutely perfect fish and chips. There's even the chance to purchase some lovely shabby chic bits - all highly recommended and well definitely be back 10/10

Balls fish and chips are delicious,even better when eaten in their wonderfully decorated adjoining cafe. This is no ordinary cafe, it is full of rustic and glittery home ware and gifts, which can be purchased at reasonable prices. The menu changes regularly but there is always a good choice, ranging from salads, curries, chicken etc. Anne also serves an excellent... More

6 Seniors (wrinklies) had lunch to celebrate the 90th birthday of one of our group. Service was excellent and brisk. Food was everything we could wish for. Staff were pleasant and helpful. We laughed and joked and put the world to rights. A very pleasant experience.

It was a wedding dress search that brought us to Prudhoe and after, much to my surprise, finding THE dress we were advised to go to Balls for a meal. Another triumph! Fish and Chips cooked to perfection, mushy peas soft white bread all washed down with limitless pots of tea. A perfect finish to a successful morning.

We came here for lunch with our daughter and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.We had the traditional fish and chip dinner in pleasant and quirky surroundings and it was a nice change to have Balls Fish & Chips served direct onto a plate! Certainly worth a visit !

Balls of Prudhoe is something of an institution and has grown over the years, and they now have a separate restaurant / tea room which is popular with everyone of all ages. The service and food is second to none and they now have an alcohol licence so you can wash it all down with some fine beers or lagers,... More

Have watched this place grow over the years & they never fail to provide the best Fish & Chips. They even keep up with dietary situations by offering Gluten Free Batter Fish & Chip cooked in a separate frier. Their expansion into restaurant service next door took them to anoither level yet the friendly & quality service & standard never... More
