The Blue Ball, Walton-on-the-Hill
The pub is on Deans Lane. The name "blue ball" is a common one, and one suggestion is that it derives from the blue ball that innkeepers hung on a post outside as a signal for stagecoach drivers to stop for passengers. This one is now a 'gastropub' which could be considered the 21st century equivalent of a coaching inn.
