I have been to The Lamb on a number of occasions and I have always been highly impressed with the friendly service and excellent lunch, especially if the sun in shining and you have the opportunity to enjoy the lovely walled garden. Our recent lunch was outside in the courtyard. The menu was very good and we opted for one... More

Have just returned home after staying 2 nights at The Lamb. We've stayed at all but one of this group of hotels now, and for a weekend break, thought this was the best of an excellent bunch. We had a dog with us, and the welcome we received was second to none. Staff seem to anticipate every need, without crowding... More

Five of us met for a family birthday lunch an Saturday 22 March. The initial reception and bar service were excellent but the meal in the restaurant was disappointing on two counts. Firstly, whilst the food itself was delicious and beautifully presented the portions were disappointingly small - far more style than substance. Secondly, the restaurant staff were very polite...

We chose the Lamb because it was conveniently midway to meet with our friends and we love the Cotswolds generally. The Lamb is just off the main High Street so within easy walking distance of other restaurants, shops etc. There is no dedicated parking and when we arrived on a busy Saturday we had to park 100 yards away but...

We had Dinner at The Lamb last Saturday evening. We ate in the lounge. The service was excellent and the food was very good. The portions were very large. We shared a seafood platter to start and it was enormous! We had a break before the main course which was very good indeed. The staff were very attentive and the... More

We went on a very cold day in February , saw the cosy fire through the window and decided to go in. But tables seem to be a bit of a mish mash and we ended up on a tiny table with barely enough room to eat and drink on. We chose lunch from the menu, but my open cheese... More

I am very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your sandwich with us. This is an open sandwich served with daily hotel-baked bread and local grated cheddar. On the side there is home-made chutney, dressed leaves and kettle chips. I have copied the menu entry below and believe that what you received was a direct execution of this,... More

We stayed for one night and from when we walked through the door, the Manager and mature Receptionists were very helpful. Though the young staff lighting the fire seemed stressed and unable to cope with customer questions! Lovely cosy bar with log fire and they took us to our room which was cosy and had lovely touches - Espresso machine,... More

I am of the opinion that your hotel negatives are perspective based or... More

Very very good lunch and a great place to have a stroll around. We met up with friends prior to going on to Bath and it was a very relaxing place to sit. Even although the Chef had to go home ill they were not phased by this at all and went to their sister hotel next door for the... More

We go to the Cheltenham racing festival every March and usually stay in Stow. For a change we decided to stay in Burford and chose the Lamb and I am glad we did. The hotel was great and cosy (we especially liked the resident lounges and log fires), the staff very friendly (the receptionist even ran after us on the... More

We have just returned from a two night stay in this totally charming hotel. As soon as we arrived the peace and tranquility of this little gem made us forget our stressful week at work. We sunk into one of the sofas by the fireside with a glass of wine and could have sat there the whole weekend. Although peaceful... More
