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

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!

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

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.

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.
