Very good fine dining, excellent service - need to work on veg menu

The restaurant is located in a side street off the main road through Burford. It looks like an oldy-woldy pub from the outside and once inside the flag stone floors and wood panelled walls reaffirm that old English coach house atmosphere. However, there is nothing old fashioned about the menu... read more

A superb dining experience, reasonably priced and with excellent service. Several surprise extra courses made it even better value. Each course attractively presented.

What a great place to eat in the Cotswolds. We've been here for dinner several years ago and have always been impressed with the quality. Tonight was no exception. We arrived on the spur of the moment and they were able to fit us in. There was a wonderful selection to choose from and the desert choice was new tonight.... More

I had lunch at the Lamb yesterday with 3 business colleagues. We were the only people in the restaurant. I personally found the menu a bit confusing but then I'm not really a "foodie". However, when the food did arrive it was first rate and well worth the fixed price that we paid for 2 courses. For some reason the... More

My wife and I met an old friend and his wife for lunch .Food excellent if perhaps slightly pricey .Service attentive, but unobtrusive. Place itself quaint, lovely garden, what one would hope for in that part of the world. Lunch took three and a half hours. That is all the recommendation that is required.

Burford in the summer can be packed. The main street full of inviting hostelries is attractive and alluring but busy and over priced. My advise? Take a stroll down Sheep street where you will find this ancient and characterful Inn. If its sunny find a table in the relaxing courtyard or the walled garden .Order from an pub style menu... More

What a wonderful meal we had. The staff (we were served by a particularly attractive Czech lady) were all excellent. We had the 8 course tasting menu and it was fantastic whole heartedly recommend everyone to have that as you won't be disappointed. The portions were large for a tasting menu. Will be going back for sure.

We booked a voucher for a sublime Sunday at the Lamb - it consisted of a 3 course Sunday lunch, an overnight stop, complimentary wine and breakfast. Its one of the best things we've ever done. We were made welcome the moment we stepped in the door - the Sunday lunch was awesome - I started with smoked salmon and... More
