Blue Ball Inn

Blue Ball Inn


Bishops Lydeard


Tel: 01984 618242

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 repuation 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.

We don't do fast food. We do reliably sourced, fully traceable and properly cooked good food to order, as fast as the application of heat will allow. Why the rush anyway? Relax, enjoy a glass or two with the locals, perhaps a sing-song with members of the village shoot, and take in the breathtaking backdrop of the Quantock Hills. All are welcome.

As well as an award-winning restaurant, our location (which some say the word "tranquil" was invented for) makes us an ideal base from which to explore England's first designated area of outstanding natural beauty. We boast exceptional Quantock bed and breakfast accommodation which is available for overnight stays or long breaks, a beautiful tiered garden for alfresco dining or hog roasts during the summer months, and our own bridge, the views from which are stunning.
