“Good food”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

I found this through Trip Advisor and agree that the food is excellent, The only problem was that we had to wait a bit to long for the food which meant we didn't have time for puds (gutted as I was looking forward to the orange cheesecake!). The reason was probably because of the unexpected surge of bridge players (we were 4 of them) which they hadn't bargained for! I would eat there again though as the food was excellent at a good price and the service friendly

“It's just a pub!”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

While we stayed at the Calcutts House in Ironbridge, we went for for an evening meal to The Golden Ball. The pub was not easy to find as the sign-posting was a bit obscure but once we got there, there was ample parking just outside.
They have a small restaurant but I don't think they care much about it. It's basically a 'drinking pub' and if you want to eat, I suggest you have the bar menu and eat in the bar.
As for the restaurant, there was no printed menu (just the black board), and the staff did not bother to enquire after serving food. The food itself was not bad at all, but a little expensive for pub-standard service!
Basically, if you want a drink (and a bite even), this place is probably OK, but if you are after a nice and cosy evening meal, please look else where!
