We found The Blue Ball Inn by total chance from an internet search for pubs on The Quantocks - and I'm so pleased that we did. I grew up in Taunton but had never been to the Blue Ball until this trip. We were looking for a place to stay near the hills so that we could walk on the Saturday and Sunday and had just the most perfect time. We stayed in Stag Cottage and ate in the restaurant both the nights that we were in Somerset - food great - Vegetarian Husband tricky to feed but happy with menu choices. Stag Cottage fab. Most of all we liked the fact that whatever time you showed up and however hot and tired you were from walking or scrubbed-up for the evening - the welcome by all of The Blue Ball team was the same and faultless. Having found this place we plan to return as soon as we are able.

- There are few pubs these days that don't serve food, but how many go the extra yard? The Blue Ball has earned an enviable reputation as one of Somerset's finest pub restaurants through a combination of traditional dishes with a modern twist, an emphasis on freshness and seasonality, and an insistance on using locally sourced ingredients from farmers, growers and merchants who care as much about the quality and welfare of their produce as we do. ... more less
