Very interesting place to stay. Staff extremely helpful, food excellent. It has been a long time since I had stayed in such an old hotel, but it was great fun. Even the bedroom floor sloped, which was interesting if you had to get up in the night!! Room was very clean, as was the bathoom, which again had everything you... More

The Lamb Inn in Sheep Street! What a cliché that would be were it not the true address of this characterful old inn in what is supposed to be the most perfect ancient town in England, maybe Britain. It really does have stone flagged floors, low ceiling and beams to bump your head on. We were there in a heat... More

Stayed for one night, but wish it had been more. The room was on the small side, but really nice and beautifully equipped. The food in the bar was sublime and the service second to none. Can't recommend highly enough. Best bit was we took the dog (allowed in certain rooms) and the room we had, (Rosie), had a private... More

Stayed here in June the night before our wedding next door at the Baytree. We have used the Lamb a lot in the past and again they delivered a great stay and were very helpful in the build up to our wedding with extra rooms for the big day as well as setting up a few guests the night before....

July 2014 - A glorious weekend break for my Partner. We could not fault this hotel, the staff were superb, attentive but not intrusive, The gardens were gorgeous, the surrounding area beautiful. We will definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends and certainly intend visiting again. The room although small, had everything you needed, it felt like home from... More

We stayed for two nights in April 2014 - the two days before our wedding held at the Bay Tree next door. We weren't able to stay at the Bay Tree as they had other weddings so we choose the Lamb as it was next door and part of the same chain. We stayed in the Allium room, and then... More

The Lamb Inn is a very quaint and charming hotel, full of historic character. However there are steps everywhere; on entry from the street, to the bar and restaurant, to the public conveniences and to the rear courtyard and garden - not a ramp in sight!. Not good when you are travelling with an elderly relative with reduced mobility -... More

The Lamb Inn is a great place to stay with an old English charm. We stayed for 4 nights. Our room is warm and charming. The bar and restaurant serve very good food. My daughter ordered crayfish risotto and said it was the best. The bathroom is very small but quite modern, bright and clean with great amenities. The people... More

My wife and I have just returned from a memorable three night stay. The staff were all friendly, efficient and courteous without being over solicitous. The lounges were comfortable, charming and full of character. Our bedroom was a superior double (Garnes) which was on the ground floor and overlooked the street. No noise at all and was tastefully decorated and... More

I recently stayed in this hotel and found the staff to be very friendly and pleasant. The waitress at breakfast was a lovely girl, very attentive and efficient. The breakfast choices were huge and upon ordering a cooked breakfast this was delivered fairly quickly. The dining room the breakfast was served in was a lovely big room, very light and... More

Bill R, General Manager at The Lamb Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for your glowing report. I recall your visit and we enjoyed your company. I hope we can arrange a different room for you next time. The centuries old physical dynamics of our bedrooms and hotel offer many positives and in a few occasions a restriction or two. Signet is a small, very well appointed and decorated room with... More
