After a morning at Brize Norton a group of us stopped for a spot of lunch at the Lamb Inn. It was never going to be easy for twelve of us but the welcome we received was outstanding. A table in the garden was perfect and the service was worth of club class or Virgin airlines. Even the photo the... More

On visiting Burford, we discovered that all pubs stop serving food in the afternoon until 6pm and we were directed here in search of a little lunch. We were welcomed and directed to the outside courtyard. The waitress was excellent. When I asked if they catered for Coeliacs, she knew what I was talking about and said that they could... More

Ate here on Saturday lunchtime with my partner. It was so lovely to sit out in the garden. Shame it rained a bit but they had umbrellas over the tables that kept us dry. We weren't even aware of the garden, until we arrived and were asked if we wanted to sit inside or out in the garden, so glad... More

We popped in for a late afternoon refreshment, found the garden area out back of the hotel so stayed for dinner. We were not disappointed with our find and choice. Garden was lovely and the food and service even better.

Don't miss the charming, historic Lamb Inn when visiting the lovely old market town of Burford, Oxfordshire. The little pub is quaint and serves an excellent carrot and cumin soup and an equally good chicken liver and green salad for the perfect lunch.

A romantic break at the charming Lamb Inn Hotel included an outstanding filet steak cooked in hay, this came with dauphinoise potatoes, spinach, wild mushrooms and onion puree. Every item was cooked to perfection and balanced the other ingredients. We had not intended to eat at the hotel and the superb quality was a really nice surprise. This was a... More

As thrilled as I am to read this I can assure you that our Head Chef and your waiter, Lukasz, took even more pleasure. Even with the accolades our restaurant has it is wonderful to be pitched alongside dining experiences such as offered at Pied a Terre. Thank you and please visit again soon. More

This was our second visit to the Lamb Inn and the trip for Sunday lunch was very worthwhile. The dining room is spacious and bright and the service very helpful and attentive. The food was very good (we can recommend the roast pork and the hake on garlic mash and the lunch menu is good value-for-money at £18.95 for two... More

After an aborted attempt to dine at The Bay Tree we found a totally different reception at this "pub" that is in the same ownership as the Bay Tree (best avoided!). We were greeted and welcomed along with our dog and had a pleasant table in the garden with fantastic staff. On the food front the dog was happy to... More
