I have set the blog to be a different page other than the home page.

I want to have a link from single.php to this blog page.

Is there any function that pulls out URL for the blog ?

To build on Sagive's answer, you'll want to wrap the ID in get_permalink() to get the actual link.

<?php echo '<a href="' . get_permalink( get_option( 'page_for_posts' ) ) . '">Our Blog</a>'; ?>

Why make it so difficult? This makes more sense: <a href="<?php echo get_permalink( get_option( 'page_for_posts' ) ); ?>">Our Blog</a> –  user2019515 Jan 18 at 4:10

You can use get_option of page_for_posts to get the page ID to either assign it to a variable or to echo it if you wish to do so.

<?php $postsPageId = get_option('page_for_posts'); ?>
<a href="index.php?p=<?php echo $postsPageId; ?>">Our Blog</a>

For additional information of the defualt get_option visit: Option Reference
