a bit too pretentious.

My husband and I visited for a special meal, as we have done over a period of years. It is a lovely restaurant and the quality of the food excellent but it does lack a certain atmosphere and I feel it is more suited to serving its own residents than being a restaurant for the masses. That said... read more

We had dinner here over the bank holiday weekend and were very impressed at the food and service. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and has a great ambience in the evenings. We opted for the set three course dinner menu and the selection, quality and presentation were all outstanding, with lots of little extra nibbles of food in between each... More

We ate in the Lamb restaurant on three occasions and the food was beautifully presented and delicious as always.

Saturday lunch in the garden was a poor experience. Slow service and bland food. A child's pizza was pitta bread with tomato purée and a slice of cheddar cheese. A request for a few peas with a main course resulted in 3 (three) peas. Nice garden.

Stopped here on our day trip to Burford simply because it seemed to be the nearest pub we could find. The menu offered a great selection of varied meals including some vegan/vegetarian options. The food was well prepared and georgeously presented - we were very pleasantly surprised by the high standard of the restaurant's performance. Accompanied by first class service... 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.
