Once again, on spending four nights at The Lamb Inn, I am hoping to return. The rythmn of village life in the evening and early morning is lovely. When you are there, the Inn offers a welcome that has been centuries in the making. You can feel it.

We had a lovely visit to The Lamb Inn, a place I used to visit when younger. Ver atmospheric, low beams and fireplaces etc. very comfortable rooms with nice attention to detail. Staff charming and helpful. Food terrific, although the service on the Saturday night was a tad slow.

We have eaten and stayed at the Lamb previously, but this time our experience was totally different & a bit disappointing. The staff are still friendly, helpful and polite, but there doesn't seem as many staff as there used to be and we found the service to be slow in all areas. It took 3 hours for our meal in... More

A very long wait in lovely rear garden for food of mixed quality. One plate of lovely fish and chips and another of sausage and mash - but I can only assume they'd run out of mash to go with thee small sausages! Extremely small portion resulted in snacking later on. Disappointing as not cheap.

Burford is just off the A40 and the Lamb is a place that I like to stop off when I am in the area. In the summer it is very pleasant to sit in the courtyard and in the winter there is a great roaring fire to keep you warm. The staff are always very friendly, attentive without being annoying....

Love the cottage and the bedrooms however I had a halt in reception near the pub for the map of Cotswolds. I originally asked for a map and next moment the girl comes with a pale ale beer in her hands and ask her if she has a map then tells me reluctantly/hesitantly about having a big map of the... More

Have stayed here many, many times before and it was as good as ever. Excellent staff - they really do look after you. This was the first time we've travelled with our new puppy, and he was really welcomed as well, and thoroughly spoiled by the staff too - he loved it!! We'll be back!

I stayed here for only one night, but I found the hotel to be excellent. My room was immaculate clean and traditionally laid out, and the staff were extremely polite and helpful. Breakfast was of a high standard too. Will definately be back.

If you like cosy inns then this place is for you. We had a lovely well appointed room with a four-poster bed. The staff was warm and very friendly. One night we ate a pub meal which was plain but tasty. The lounge setting for pub meals, afternoon teas, or drinks has comfortable sofas where one can relax in comfort,... More

Just returned from a fabulous 3 night break with dinner at The Lamb Inn Burford. The food in the restaurant was of Michelin star quality. Throughout our stay the service was impeccable with great attention to detail. Great location in The Cotswolds for walks, or as a base to explore further afield. We will definitely return and would highly recommend... More
