Lots of very well behaved dogs had brought their humans for a lovely Sunday lunch. The service was friendly and quick without being too rushed. The dogs make sure you will speak with strangers thus enhancing the whole experience.

Fabulous Christmas dinner. All 3 courses really tasty and served piping hot. Only negative is that at £65 a head I would have expected tea or coffee to be included in the price. We would definitely go again for Christmas dinner.

There's a consistent pattern, over time, of quality about The Golden Ball of Longton. Our latest visit was no exception. Delicious food, excellent, attentive and friendly service and an enjoyable buzz about the place. It's always a treat. Thank you for making our visit so enjoyable.

Plenty of choice but costly for what we recieved. Didnt really enjoy our meals. Soup was left as to salty and slow cooked beef fatty . Did mention to staff we thought was average but was laughed off. Unfortunately wont be rushing back for food.

Had an excellent lunch here with friends and our dog for a pre-Christmas treat. It was excellent! Great choice of menu and warm welcoming service. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food. Also a brilliant dog friendly pub and a choice of great food for our four legged-friend who ate everything up with delight. Would highly recommend and will certainly return.

Had the Christmas menu, very dissatisfied, tiny roast potatoes, 1 slice of carrot a couple of sprouts and a tiny amount of cabbage. All I can say is I’m glad I’m not coming hear on the day. The only saving grace was a great desert and good service. You need to try harder!!!
