DRINK

As a small pub the Blue Ball has always had a great reputation for its cask ales, and our focus is on keeping just a few locally brewed beers but keeping them in top condition. As a Free House we aren't 'tied' to any brewery or wholesaler, and our approach is to support brewers of fine East Anglian beers.

We recently added a 3rd pump to the bar and  always have at least one ale from Adnams on tap, in addition rotating other great beers from Woodfordes and other local brewers.
 
Lager was recently re-introduced to the bar after a 12 year absence, and the Dry Hopped lager is becoming increasingly popular to discerning lager drinkers who appreciate anything but a pint of 'eurofizz'.
 
Aspal's Harry Sparrow cider is also on draught.

Of course we also have a wide range of non alcoholic drinks on offer, including juices, ginger beer, cordials and the usual fizzy offerings from both large and small producers.
