Email this pub The Blue Ball Inn is a beautiful, privately owned, traditional country pub on Exmoor with low ceilings, blackened beams, stone fireplaces and an atmosphere of unspoilt old world charm. The Inn has a fine and growing reputation for providing real ale, fine wines and excellent food which is served all day in the summer and lunchtimes and evenings in the winter.

We believe that the Blue Ball Inn is located in the heart of the Walking and Hiking capital of the UK. What better way to relax after a rewarding day spent Walking and Hiking than to enjoy an excellent meal in our restaurant followed by an after dinner drink in front of an open log fire in the pub, and then a peaceful nights sleep in one of our traditional high quality bedrooms. The perfect end to a perfect day.

Our 16 en-suite bedrooms offer the tranquillity that you would naturally expect form an unspoilt grade II listed, 13th century Inn on Exmoor. Each room is equiped with colour TV and complimentary tea and coffee and family rooms are available.

The Blue Ball Inn welcomes children and is a dog friendly pub. We also cater for early and late check in.

Beer Festival here on the 14th 15th and 16th of May
