Pub restaurant in lovely setting with good food

There are two restaurants at the Lamb Inn - one is more formal in a separate dining room, and the other is in the garden area and the bar areas. The former is more expensive and for perhaps more formal occasions, while the garden and bar areas allow for casual dining in a relaxed setting (depending... read more

The Lamb is big on atmosphere and weather permitting has a lovely garden setting unmatched in the town. The food was adequate but not great

Visited on a Thursday lunch time. The bar area is very cosy with worn flagstones and is very atmospheric. The bar staff are very helpful and made us welcome. A good selection of beers. We had soup which was very tasty, a meat platter for one which we shared and a bowl of chips. The meat platter was beautiful with... More

This is a little slice of old fashioned history and very different to the usual hustle and bustle of most inns and hosteliries. With amazing ambiance, the little rooms of the original building have not been opened up, so each area retains a wealth of character. Although there are new furnishings and curtains, the owners have resisted the temptation of... 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

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 which has lots of interesting items. The food is definitely... 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.
