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

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

Having a High Tea in the secluded garden is almost like the entrance to heaven. Served by young East-European staff. They are doing a wonderfull job. The atmosphere is relaxed and the inside of the pub and restaurant are great and authentic. Just go there.

We were in Burford and as parking was difficult we ended up outside the Lamb. We walked in and were greeted by one of the head waiters called Mario. We asked where we could have a sandwich. Mario showed us our options, he took us to the bar, took is to another inside area, then outside and then said he... More

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
