We booked an overnight valentines package & I couldn't have had a better time. The food was sublime, the service discreet & understated & the atmosphere romantic. That last point is quite tricky on valentines as places are often so busy & or all feels a bit commercial but it was all so classily done. Would highly recommend

My wife and I had a fabulous three nights here in December. Our room was very comfortable, the floor had the slope of several generations, the bathroom was definitely 21st century and it was very obvious that someone had given a lot of thought about how to make guests feel cared for and rather special. All the meals were excellent... More

We went to the lambs inn last weekend to wind down after our wedding before returning to work and it was wonderful. The staff were very polite and helpful and the bar very cosy. Our room was beautiful - we had the Allium suite as we were spoiling ourselves. Where it is placed is fantastic for exploring Burford and the... More

We have stayed here a few times now and have always enjoyed our visits. On our most recent trip, our room was smaller than ones we have previously stayed in but still comfortable. The bathroom was equipped with lovely Molton Brown products but no other accessories - a shower cap would have been appreciated to use in the power shower.... More

Have lunched here previously and decided to try it this year for Christmas. What a result - good food well presented and served by attentive and friendly, mainly East European, staff. The General Manager has them well trained and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. There are three dog bedrooms and dogs are allowed in the public... More

We recently ate lunch at the Lamb. It is a beautiful, historic inn. We ate the set lunch in the dining room, fallow deer for the main course and a pigeon starter. Set lunch is £20 for two course? and £25 for 3? Food was fine, service good. The bars are more intersting but only serve bar type snacks. Burford... More

What a delight, we were met by very welcoming staff, nothing was too much trouble, the... More

Just had a beautiful xmas lunch with the family here. Gorgeous food, excellent service and lovely surroundings. Children's menu a bit pricey though although very nicely done. Had an amazing cheese board for pudding and the homemade chocolates were delicious.

Have been to Burford so many times and wondered what the Lamb was like. So glad we tried it out. A great atmosphere welcomed us. The menu choice for lunch was varied. Both meals were very nice indeed ad the service was friendly and professional. Will definitely try this again.

As a place to meet up for lunch with old friends, it meets all the requirements. Comfortable lounge with log fire, attentive staff, welcoming dining room and excellent lunch. The lunch was nouvelle cuisine - not to everyone's taste - and it might have been advisable to have some of bar menu items available. The cheese board was excellent and... More
