Will Larter left this review about The Blue Ball Inn

This pub features in the Camra list of Yorkshire's Real Heritage Pubs and worth a visit on that score alone. It has a fairly well preserved layout of small rooms with a tiny central bar, featuring three beers on hand pump (see photo). Although it was fairly quite on a Bank Holiday Monday afternoon, there was a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the beer I had was in good condition. It has to be said though that the furnishings and carpet looked old, worn and dirty. I would expect someone running a pub like this to take a little pride in its appearance, but the woman behind the bar didn't seem to know what I was talking about when I mentioned the Heritage Pubs book (even though copies were available for £4.99 on the shelf opposite the bar).

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Blue Ball

16th-century pub with quite a plain façade but an attractive historic interior. Jumble of various rooms, corridors and seating areas around a very compact central servery. Comfortable furniture and traditional decor. TT landlord and Tetley's Cask (£1.40 half) available on handpump.
