Very pleasant meeting place

The Lamb Inn at Longdown is plesantly situated for meeting family or friends between Exeter and Moretonhampstead. The staff go over and above the call of duty to make you feel welcome. Nothing is to much trouble.

Excellent pub type food, well priced & very helpful staff. We had a cottage pie & crab salad & though they were busy we were fitted in & not made to wait. This is a real pub & not trendy or selling small portions so for normal people who want exactly what it says on the tin then this is... More

Called in for a lunchtime drink. A pint of lager and an orange juice and lemonade £7.30. Were told by the owner that locals did not drink here and that although it should have been the centre of village life it was not! Not surprising considering the prices. Very clean and tidy and the loos were spotlessly clean but there... More

My husband and I visited The Lamb Inn during our holiday to Devon recently. We popped in here one night for a drink and it looked nice, so we returned the following night for a meal. This was a mistake. We ordered battered prawns and duck rolls for starters, which were ok but the duck rolls tasted very bland, and... More

My husband and I have been going here for quite a while now. The food is always of an excellent quality, the beer is well kept(according to my husband!), staff are cheerful and helpful and the surroundings are comfortable. The menu is good traditional pub food at a reasonable price and for some of the most popular meals they offer... More

We came across this restaurant by chance and what a lovely surprise. The staff and Susie the owner were very friendly and helpful. The food was very tasty and well presented. If in the area again will definitely go back. Ladies the toilets were very clean and smelt lovely.

Good all round wholesome pub grub. Our meals were hot, well presented and very generous portions too. Fish and chips were superb - fresh fish in melt-in-your-mouth crispy batter and what a whopper of a fish! The steak pie was amazing too - rich gravy and oven baked with a puff pastry lid. Heaps of choice and a really extensive... More

Advance warning of the A38 being blocked sent us on a diversion and, fortuitously, we decided on Sunday Lunch at The Lamb Inn. Although the tables all had reservations, the very friendly landlady found us a table which had a later reservation. The beer was excellent, Reel Ale, the local Ginger beer equally as good, and our Beef and Lamb... More

Took our two children here last Summer. Food was very basic and tasted like it had just been re-heated. Also very expensive for what it was. No atmosphere and staff were not interested in the slightest. Would not recommend.
