Located in the idyllic village of Braunston, the Blue Ball is a picture postcard 17th-century thatched country inn. A warm welcome awaits you within this quaint and deceptively spacious pub and restaurant that has much to offer the visitor. Full of character, the interior boasts an abundance of mellow wooden beams and flooring, feature brick walls, traditional furnishings and cosy log fires to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. There is also an attractive contemporary style garden terrace, the ideal spot to relax with a drink in the warmer months. Dogs are welcome in the Drinks Bar and on the terrace only. Family friendly too, there are changing facilities, high chairs, drawing materials, books and toys available.

The award-winning Blue Ball has deservedly gained a reputation for its food and hospitality and the seasonal menus serve fresh, local produce whenever possible. Special diets are also catered for and offer an excellent range of gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options which are clearly marked. Many more dishes can also be adapted on request and the friendly and knowledgeable staff are always happy to answer questions regarding food preparation and ingredients.

An impressive range of gluten free dishes are available including Starters, Light Bites, Mains, Desserts and Sunday Lunch. Children’s options are available too. From Starters and Light Bites (such as fresh ciabattas & fillings, soup, salad, paté and dips), through to more substantial meals (including fish, poultry, meat and pasta) and irresistible Desserts, there is something for everyone. To compliment your dining experience at the Blue Ball there is also an excellent selection of wines and beers to be enjoyed.
