This beautiful thatched pub has provided welcome refreshment, warm hospitality and bountiful bonhomie since the 17th century.
You’ll find us opposite the church in the charming little village of Braunston, just off the main Oakham to Leicester road. Pull up a chair in our wood-beamed bar and consult the menu, a choice of world wines, cask ales and fresh food, all fairly priced and cooked to order, with options for veggies and vegans, too.
We’re a pub for all seasons. Snuggle up by our roaring inglenook fireplace in winter, laze on our sun-trap deck in summer – and prop up the bar with the locals year-round. The Blue Ball is as popular with nearby villagers as visitors, which ensures it’s always filled with people and good cheer.
