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.

    Not impressed at all.

    Good food. Good sized portions. Friendly service.

  • (((** 22 May 2017 by David Lowe from Wickersley

    Arrived at 13:45 for 14:00 reservation. Table not available until 14:30.
    The place was busy, but it appeared that it was 1 or 2 staff light.
    Congestion possibly caused by offering Sunday lunch menu together with full menu.
    Sunday roasts were well presented - meat was "spot on", roast potatoes perfect, vegetables let down by burnt parsnips.

    The Golden Ball is local to us so we often use it. They have a new menu which we benefitted from for the first time last night. Some of the old favourites are still there but there are new additions such as smoked bacon rib and lamb shank. The service is always good, the staff helpful and friendly.

    Very quickly seated, pleasant, polite staff. Changes to the menu were discussed prior to ordering so there was no disappointment. Very little wait until food arrived. We ordered the beef platter for two. The meal was delicious! Excellent value for money. Would highly recommend!
