Had a Sunday lunch carvery here, unfortunately the food was disappointing. The beef was very chewy and the gravy was tasteless with the carrots having an odd and unrecognisable twang to them. vegetables somewhere between al dente and shown-the-pan hard work when the knives are as blunt as blunt things. All this and being served at the bar by a condescending member of staff......what an afternoon, needless to say we won't be going back.

we went to the blue ball last night as we have many times in the past and they did not disappoint us at all. I had the pulled pork burger which was very tasty and filling ( to much could not finish it ) my partner had the fish and chips with mushy peas, excellent she said. the quantity and quality of the food is very good and good value for money but I think £3.90 for a pint of thatchers gold is way to dear.

Although the pub/restaurant is very nice and in a good location. The food was nice but the portions did not match the cost. I had a curry ( meat unknown until arrival). There was as much tomato as there was meat. ( chicken I think). Small portion of rice not enough to soak up sauce. My wife had tandoori chicken which was supposed to be on lentil salad. Sliced up Naan bread made it look like it was a big portion of chicken was hardly any lentils and salad was mostly rocket. Didn't bother staying for pudding so can not comment on them. Did have good selection of beers. Just a shame was driving.

We were staying in Sidmouth, as we had done many times. We have been to the Blue Ball on many occasions in the past, and during this trip we returned for an early evening meal. It was a Saturday and many of the tables were reserved, however we were assured we could sit anywhere as the reservations were later in the evening and the table could be re-laid after we had left. We ordered the crab salad, stilton ploughmans and the chicken in filo pastry. Each was served quickly by friendly staff and was delicious. A good selection of beer available. Seating outside available as well. A spacious car park across the road, do not forget the green cross code!
