Caledonian Deuchars IPA Fuller's London Pride Guest Beers (4)
The Blue Ball re-opened on 22 August 2015 having been closed for three years. Facing Walton Heath and overlooking the village pond, the pub is named after the centre of a racing winning post. The original 1880 building has gained a later ground floor extension along the length of its front. Inside, the bar sits to the right, neatly dividing the floor space up between a front bar, a small side area round a fireplace and a rear dining room, which leads to an outside decking area. The pub originally belonged to W F Hodgson’s Kingston Brewery until its acquisition by Courage in 1943 and there is little to see of the original 1880 building. At the front is a wooden floored area which acts as the bar area. This leads to a large dining area which is split into smaller sections. The menu changes frequently and features a number of dishes cooked on the premises. Meals are served all day from 12-9:30. The pub is tied to Heineken for its beers with three Caledonian beers usually on sale. One of these, Edinburgh Castle 80/-, is sold under the name of Blue Ball Bitter.
