The Blue Ball is a busy seaside pub in the beautiful village of Sidford in East Devon. We are on the look out for an enthusiastic management company with fresh ideas to maintain the pubs epic reputation and take the business to the next level.

With a passion for great food our ideal partner will have the skill to implement a delicious menu from a fast paced kitchen whilst guaranteeing an excellent guest experience. With a strong focus on quality and delivering an epic service you will lead and inspire your team to be the best.

The Pub

 The Blue Ball stands in a prominent roadside location on the busy A3052 which runs along the East Devon coastline. With great curb appeal it is the epitome of a quintessential Devon pub and is guaranteed to entice passers-by. The Blue Ball dates back hundreds of years but was completely rebuilt in 2007 following a disastrous fire. It was reconstructed with much regard to its original character and so its open fires, quirky wall finishes, traditional beams and snug areas maintain the pubs original charm perfectly.

Did we mention that the Blue Ball also boats a large function room, 8 en suite guest rooms, a stunning wrap around beer garden and a car park for 100 vehicles? This is a truly multi-facetted business that together with a great team and enthusiasm to engage with both locals and tourists will be an epic pub for years to come.

There is plenty on offer within just a short drive of the pub. The Regency town of Sidmouth with plenty of heritage and beaches, the county town of Exeter, the delights of Beer. This seaside pub is a magnet for locals and tourists alike all looking for a home from home experience.
