We ate here twice during our week in Burford. Can't go wrong with the food here. We always eat in the bar -- the main menu is good, and the specials are numerous and really fill out the selection. Great fish selections always. Atmosphere just perfect!

We stopped in Burford during a trip out from Moreton in Marsh. A typically pleasant village in the Cotswolds and looking for a light lunch in a village well served by nice looking restaurants were directed by one of the local shop owners to the Lamb which was off the main high street. We wandered into the restaurant and were... More

The food was well cooked and presented. Breakfast buffet was all you could wish for. Real honeycomb and great variety of breakfast menu.

We passed this little town on our way to Stow on the Wold and were impressed by how picturesque it was so headed back for dinner at The Lamb. It is a very cosy pub with lots of nooks and crannies and very friendly staff. The garden is amazing but unfortunately it was a wet evening. The good was very... More

I have had many visits to The Lamb and have never been disappointed. It is in a wonderful location, steeped in English history and with a wonderful, cosy interior ambience too. Service is friendly, efficient and helpful. Sure, it is not a cheap night out, but it delivers on quality food and the extras (une amuse bouche before starter, sorbet... More

Great fireside menus, and the food was tasty and right quantity. I had the burger in a ciabatta and my wife had beer battered haddock and chips. Excellent place to eat better that most of the expensive high street pubs. Recommend.

Standard statement regarding this and all my reviews: I have for some time struggled with the Trip Advisor rating system on the basis that it does not provide a particularly granular method or any useful context for restaurant reviews (for example a 5 star review for a burger joint is very different to a 5 star review for a Michelin...

I have to agree with everyone else who has rated The Lamb so highly. Quiet lunch in the bar. Comfortable and cosy. Deli platters are excellent value and quality. Just off the main road but well worth the short walk.

The Lamb delivers on atmosphere - the quintessential Cotswold Olde Worlde Inn. Lovely decor - the elegantly shabby lived in feel works. The staff are great! Really helpful and attentive - very pleasant. The Food? We had the Beef & Stilton Pie - a Lamb classic apparently - ok but sort out your beef to pastry ratio- far too much... More

Thank you for your kind review. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the hotel and service offered. I am saddened to hear that our provision of too much beef in your pie has had such a negative effect on your visit. Please rest assured that although too much for you, this is a tried and tested portion-size... More

Went with my husband and my sister and her husband for a set Saturday lunch in the restaurant. It was a fixed price £20 for two courses or £25 for three. The food was excellent and service very attentive. A very pleasant Saturday lunch. The price also included tea or coffee and petit fours. The gardens were very pretty and... More
