Called in for lunch a few days ago and as the weather was good we sat in the gardens. Waiting on staff were very attentive and prompt with bringing out menus. The lunch menu wasn't cheap, a sandwich was £9.95 but the quality was good. What we did see of the inside it did look lovely and I'm sure very... More

We had a short stay here and hopefully will not be too long before we are back again. Fantastic hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are lovely and clean with all you would want. It was great that we had fresh milk rather than the long life stuff you normally get. The gardens are also lovely... More

Really authentic hotel and restaurant. Very helpful staff. Excellent food and service. Very clean and comfortable room. Lovely garden with plenty of places to eat outdoors. Situated in a charming small Cotswold town.

We were sitting in Cirencester talking amongst ourselves as to where to have supper, when a total stranger at the next table leaned over, and told us to go to the Lamb Inn at Burford. We called and booked an early table. What a super recommendation and a thoroughly lovely evening. You can't fault this place. The team working in... More

We decided on the way home from shopping on Saturday to pop in here for dinner, we had been before a few years ago, it is still as good if not even better. I cannot fault it, such great value and such great food, it really should have a Michelin Star.

Wow, thank you for your kind words. I will just need to try and keep our Chef’s feet on the ground after such a run of high praise. More

This visit was a complete disappointment, particularly since The Lamb Inn was a previous favourite. I will never return. I stayed with two other colleagues, to whom I had recommended the hotel, for a business meeting. Both thought the rooms they stayed in too small and poorly maintained: one had taken photos of the mould in his room which he... More

There are two sides to every story and I am sure that anyone who has visited the hotel can see that this report has another perspective. I do not believe that there was an accusation as suggested and I know that at four points during this escalating complaint, an apology was given despite our beliefs. More

A lovely, olde-world hotel with beams, sloping floors etc. The rooms have names rather than numbers, and we were in Shepherd complete with 4-poster bed. A lovely room and lovely bathroom, but with low sloping ceilings it could be a bit of a problem if you were over 6 foot tall! The breakfast was smashing with good service. We didn't... More

We look forward to your next visit. I am surprised to hear that our beverage prices are higher than elsewhere in Burford. I keep a close eye on this and can say 100% that our draught beer and wine prices are below average. We have a good selection of premium bar products which are labelled as such but do cost... More

Initial impressions are of a quaint English Inn and its all that - Open fires, flagged worn stone corridors and pleasant seating area's. Our bedroom in general was ok however the bathroom is in desperate need of updating - An inadequate shower over bath arrangement with a worn and damp smelling curtain that did nothing to prevent water pouring down...

Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry to hear that you have left disappointed. I am struggling to pinpoint the bathroom in question and would appreciate if I could have more information on your stay or the room to further investigate. manager@lambinn-burford.co.uk More

Last minute booking for a popular area on a busy weekend so paid rather more than usual for a room in this old inn. Room very pleasant..good shower but alas no shower cap..everything else of a high quality so worth the higher price. Staff polite & helpful ; good food in the bar, excellent beer. Would stay here again.

This is a very nice hotel. Our room was nicely appointed, not small but not large either. The evening was quiet and good for sleeping. Our bathroom was big enough and modern. There is no elevator and the steps are narrow and somewhat steep. The hotel ahs a bar, an outdoor garden area and a restaurant. It may be a... More
