There are not many places to eat in Tiverton, which is why I've been hoping for this one to get better for months. I go to Tiverton most weeks to visit relatives and usually end up here. The food here is a lottery, as is the service. There have been occasions when it's been acceptable (it's never been good). Sometimes... More

Absolutely rubbish. Not been here for ages since last meal was served cold but thought would give it a go after so long. BUT tonight poor food, poor service (my meal not delivered with my husband's and when I chased it up bits of mine were missing). So frustrated got my money back. Apparently there was a "mix up" and... More

Lunch at the White Ball yesterday was a very pleasant experience. A nice log fire, excellent service in the bar, food served quickly and hot. Staff who clearly cared and a manager who had his finger on the pulse. We've visited three Wetherspoons in recent weeks and Tiverton's is by far the best.

I've eaten here on a fairly regular basis over the last 3 years or so. The menu is what it is.. it's a chain pub so don't expect to get anything other than that! The food at the White Ball is actually very good & the staff are always very helpful. Service is normally quick - just a bit of... More

I have reviewed Wetherspoons before and this pub is not consistent. I ordered lunch and pudding and Lunch came quickly and when I finished I ordered the pudding. After 30 minutes nothing came so reminded them but 20 minutes later still nothing. I told them I would be back in 10 mins as I had to move my car but... More

We frequently visit the White Ball and are normally quite happy with the service, food etc., we understand the format and the way the establishments work and have visited Wetherspoons from North of Scotland to the South of England. Recently we were most impressed to have been very well looked after by one of the bar staff (I regret I... More

On Saturday, 24th September 2016, we stopped for a bit to eat in this first class Wetherspoons. The pub was very busy and had a great atmosphere. We got our drinks quickly, a pint of Jail Ale ( cracking pint £2.20) and a san pellegrino blood orange juice ( ice and a slice of grapefruit). And we ordered halloumi wraps... More

I am a regular visitor to Wetherspoons and wasn't as pleased as usual. It was a Friday night so was very busy but the service was good. I ordered fish and chips and when I started eating the fish, I noticed some of the flesh had a translucent appearence and was rubbery to chew. This indicates that it is not... More
