Situated between the eye-catching South Yorkshire countryside and Rotherham, The Golden Ball in Whiston boasts great views from its anterior garden for al fresco dining. Offering well-loved British pub food from a time-honoured menu, it also features a welcoming hearth-fire and classic wood and brick furnishings.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Golden Ball menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Golden Ball ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In Whiston, The Golden Ball is just 8 minutes’ drive from central Rotherham.

    We had a table for 8 booked to celebrate a friend’s birthday, at 19.30. We were shown to our table at19.50 and they set the table for us. The young waiter was very pleasant , gave us menus and asked what we would like to drink( some of the drinks finally came 30 mins later but we had to ask for the bottle of wine and wine glasses several times.) When he took our order he said there was only one soup left and no steak and ale pie so some of our group had to choose again. One of our group had the soup but had to send it back as it was lukewarm and needed reheating. Our main course finally arrived. Five of us had the Hunters chicken, it was below average, the chicken being dry and chewy.
    We did not have a dessert but did have coffees / teas. We were just about the last to leave at 22.45.
    The waiter did his best and kept apologising for the wait etc. The venue was extremely busy and very understaffed for the number of people dining. The barman was on his own at one point trying to serve people at the bar and get the drinks ordered at tables.

    The golden ball has improved over the last year but is still up to the very fine standard of few tears back. The new decor is vast improvement

    Hunters chicken and venison were lovely but the steaks were not great!!
    Lovely venue , but service rather slow, had to remind about drinks order and water I had asked for again.
    Was an early booking 6.15pm

    Very disappointed - maybe they were too busy because it was Valentines Night and we chose off the special Valentines menu but from the main menu.
