We were here in early fall and spent 3 nights in Burford as a hub for our tour of the Cotswold area. During our 4 weeks traveling in England we ate a lot of hamburgers and pizza, etc., in pub settings in an effort to conserve money. After a while we craved plain food like we normally ate at home....

Living in Burford, we have eaten in the pub part of The Lamb on a few occasions and have always enjoyed our food. As we had some family visiting we thought that we would try the restaurant part which has a separate menu as we wanted to celebrate with our family. Clearly the aim of the restaurant is a nod...

We were very much looking forward to a glass of wine and something to eat at the Lambs Inn in front of the fire. We'd eaten earlier in the day so I ordered the Ceasar Salad and my partner thr burger and fries. Both were dreadful. Such a disappointment. My partner was asked how he would like his burger cooked,... More

We had a really good well cooked meal with excellent wines. Boris was very attentive and looked after us during our stay. The crab starter was the outstanding dish with a great amuse bouche and also the sorbet. If we lived nearer would be back in the early part of 2016

Delightful traditional local, always welcoming, great staff, food is excellent and so is the service. Delicious wines and great for any occasion. Thoroughly recommend. If I didn't live here, I'd love to stay here.

We dined here on a Monday during an 11-day UK holiday trip. Outstanding! We are vegetarians, and the Lamb presented us with imaginative and superbly prepared appetizers and entrees. Service was personable and professional. The dining room was about half full, and it was clear from our table service, and from the service we saw at other tables, that management... More

Three people dined at the Lamb. Had one whole plaice, a fish and chips and a sausage entree. All delicious. Service was outstanding. Prices for the food were very reasonable - liquor seemed a bit on the high side, though

We had lunch here yesterday. It was raining and miserable outside but when we stepped through the door it was warm, inviting, cosy and the fire was lit. Low ceilings, stone floor, sofas, wing back chairs and a general feel of an old fashioned English pub. The menu was interesting if not extensive or that inspiring. We chose sausages and... More
