Excellent service at the Lamb

Ate in the restaurant with our 13 year old twins. Served lovely blinis, olives and popcorn whilst we perished the menus. Loved the decor. Amuse bouche and pre dessert complimentary. Starter of lobster and salmon ravioli somewhat bland but main course of fillet of beef more than made up for it... read more

This is just a great place for a cosy winter dinner or a fantastic garden lunch in summer. We were lucky with the weather and sat in the garden. It was busy so service was slow but the food was nice and the surroundings could not be better. I am particularly fond of the garden. It is in the heart... More

The prices indicate that dining here should be a special experience. We didn't find that to be the case. Uninspired for the most part. Nothing outstanding in a good way. I wish I could recommend it, because I loved the hotel, but unfortunately this is not the case.

The Lamb is one of my daughter's favourite places to eat, so when asked where she would like to go for her 30th birthday lunch there was an obvious choice! The weather was great so we ate in the garden which was an idyllic setting to eat at a superb and traditional Cotswold inn. Although sat outside, we received the... More

Lovely pub/restaurant, staff very attentive, meal excellent very relaxing surroundings. The Lamb is very popular, so I would imagine it can get very busy at peak periods.

The bar food was excellent. Although the resturant was good I preferred the less formal atmosphere of the bar

Great setting on a quiet side street away from the manin high street and on an unseasonably cold and wet Sunday in the Cotswolds a wonderful log fire beckoned us in. A number of lounges and bar areas offer intimate seating and sunday newspapers and we sat with coffee and biscuits before meeting up with old friends for lunch. The... More

Visited the Lamb for the second time and enjoyed a lovely relaxing lunch. Excellent food and good service without being pushy. I think we could have lingered there all afternoon if we wanted. The Lamb has a number of comfy interconnecting rooms with open fires and a choice of seating. There is also a choice of pretty outside options to... More

We live locally, so are very well versed on the quality of the competition. Nice, warm welcome. Opted for a table in the bar area which was very quiet apart from one couple with a yapping dog and a lonely looking guy by the woodburner nursing a pint. Menu looked appealing, my wife went for the ham, chips and eggs... More
