We stayed at the Lamb, and had Sunday lunch in the splendid dining room. The food was first class, albeit not as warm as we would have liked, and the service spot on. Special praise for the choice and presentation of the cheese board.

These were served at 'High Tea', along with another 'speciality of the house'- grated cheese ( species unknown) sandwiches. Turnip sandwiches were new to us, and, in fairness were probably a delicay in 1300AD. Naturally, with food of this complexity almost an hour was required to prepare these delights, and arrange a nice curl on the edge of the ginger... More

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with a meal in the Lamb's restaurant. The food was excellent, the service friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was warm and calm with no garish Christmas music intruding. The smoked fillet steak was particularly noteworthy as were the desserts. In summary, a lovely restaurant in which to celebrate a special occasion.

We have been regulars in the bar at this Burford Inn. The service is always very good but unfortunately the bar meals are now second rate. I think that if you order food from the bar menu the kitchen staff do not pay attention to the quality or quantity of the food. On 2 occasions recently I have had less... More

A party of 13 of us booked a Christmas lunch several weeks ahead and we all pre-ordered our choices. The room we had was very pleasant and the staff friendly. However to wait an hour for the starter and then almost another hour for the main course was quite appalling. The meal was not good value- my lamb was good... More

An adventurous menu. The seafood starter was amazing and excellent straw smoked beef main course. Unusual combination of flavours which work very well. Also very well geared up for a gluten free menu,

Excellent evening meal with superb food in peaceful and soothing environment. Taster menu looked great but not sure if I had the appetite to do it justice. My steak done on hay was so tasty and the cheese board had five British and five French cheeses to select from

We ended up having Sunday Lunch here, which was very tasty but we both wished we had been in the more cosy pub part of the Inn, as the dining room was a little to formal for a Sunday Lunch - however, it would've been fine if we knew what we were expecting and had gone for a gourmet evening...

As frequent diners at Michelin starred establishments, we can say with some authority that the restaurant at the Lamb in Burford deserves a star! We dined here about 4 years ago and was blown away by the quirkiness of the building and the "Tardis like" restaurant at the rear of the the most enchanting 300 year old Cotswold Inn. Our... More

Burford is a strange place in that it seems largely to exist just to be Burford. However it is extremely pretty and, to quote my daughter, well posh. As a result it has plenty of pretty looking hotels and restaurants. I came here for a business lunch, the venue being organised by my colleague. Overall it was really rather good.... More
