Well where do we start….Fantastic turnaround from 8 or 9 years ago. We’ve been in here quite a few times over the last year with mixed outcomes. The pace is lovely & clean with mostly pleasant staff & quite often a good atmosphere. Can’t say we’ve have ever had a bad meal, certain things are lacking. A portion of chips,... More

We met with family and friends here for an early Christmas celebration. The restaurant is set within the village of Longdown and has plenty of parking to the rear. Inside the setting is the standard of most village pubs with a good choice of drinks and an extensive menu and "specials board". On this occasion we didn't opt for the... More

There were 6 of us in our party, 5 of us chose to have a roast lunch and one of the men chose liver, we all had a... More

My girlfriend and I visited for a belated birthday meal, nothing over the top just something romantic for the two of us. When we arrived, we were met by happy faces and greeted by a smiling landlady, seated straight away as I had reserved a table. Service was fast and responsive with a bit of a giggle when the landlady... More

Stopped by Lamb Inn to see if we could get Sunday lunch for four at 1345. The pub lacked atmosphere but we were pleased they could accommodate us. Although the veg, roasties, gravy etc were good the meat was appalling. Thin, pre packed sliced meat with a very odd flavour that I wouldn't have fed to my dog. Ruined a... More
