About The Golden Ball
Good British dining in a beautiful country pub. Prepared by a team of excellent chefs, that simply showcase the wonderful produce from Lancashire.
Thank you to Chris, Vicky and the team for a lovely 70th birthday party. Every member of the team made an effort to make it a special night - and it was. Atmosphere, surroundings, food, spot on. Thank you. Lynda
Food and service was excellent , will definitely visit again and recommend you make a visit
Wonderful night with great food and a good atmosphere. Home cooked, tasty food at the right price and a good choice of beers too keep everyone happy. Chris and his team are doing a wonderful job and long may it continue.
Fab atmosphere, family friendly and really cosy
We have been to the Golden Ball many times. The food is always excellent as is the service.
Excellent food £12.50 menu is superb value for top quality food. Service and attention excellent.
Great service and good food
We always enjoy the Thursday Theme Nights at The Golden Ball. The food is delicious and reasonably priced and the service is second to none! Our cocker spaniel, Snoopy, also enjoys his doggy meal. We would highly recommend!
Lovely meal and fabulous service ! We will definitely be back soon.
Lovely food, lovely company (other pub customers), very friendly, helpful and attentive staff and an overall 'nice one' for allowing and taking an interest in my old dog. Thanks very much.
Superb Xmas lunch at the golden ball. The staff did a superb job and made us feel special all day. Can’t stress how good the experience was.
Great food, great service, lovely place
The Golden Ball kindly fitted us in on Christmas Day, at fairly short notice, the week before. We then headed off to friends for the evening celebrations. It's the first time we've ever eaten in a restaurant on Christmas Day, so I enjoyed the stress free occasion! Thank you
We enjoyed a lovely Christmas Day lunch! The tables were beautifully decorated! There was a very good atmosphere! Thank you Chris!
First time we have gone out for Christmas lunch and we were very happy with our experience at The Golden Ball. Excellent service, lovely food and very friendly and helpful staff.
The only thing was our child’s meal of Sausage Mash Peas Gravy came without peas. We did ask a member of staff but they never came. Ultimately it didn’t spoil our evening which was great. Food, Service, ambience. It was Christmas Eve and very busy. I work in hospitality and catering myself and know how hard it is when so busy so thank you and well done.
Fantastic meal once again in real atmospheric surroundings. A fantastic addition to Longton and just what was needed. Keep up the good work Chris, Bex & the team 👍🏻
I was very disappointed with my choice of meal. I had the cheese and onion pie and had great expectations of a home made, succulent and perfect crust, fluffy cheese pie. Sadly, what I received instead was a very thick crusted, perfectly rounded, processed pie with very little filling. It cost £11.50 and with a side order of chips, my total meal cost was £16.50 ... which is fairly extortionate for nothing special. I won't be paying a second visit for food.
Friendly attentive staff
Lovely, romantic setting, will definitely be coming back very soon.
Service was great, food was really good quality and we will definitely return.
Welcoming homely atmosphere with tasty, good choice menu and local produce food. Value for money. Highly recommend.
Fab Pes and Puddings on a Wednesday lunch!
Felt very well looked after and the food was delicious.
