“Our Two day stay at the Lamb Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We were given a two day stay as a present by our family it is an amazing place we were lucky to be upgraded to The Sherborne Suite which is a lovely room with a very nice bathroom we ate the two nights we were there and found it really good the food was lovely and plentiful we left the table with no room for anything else very filling and the breakfast in the morning was just the same so much to choose from, The staff were all very helpful pleasant and couldn't do enough for you, we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and would recommend it to anybody looking for a quite and peaceful break

We enjoyed a great 2 night stay at the Lamb Inn, rooms were clean and comfortable, food was excellent! And the staff were most friendly and helpful.
Location quiet, though 10 mins to Bourton on the Water, 20 mins Stow on the Wold and 40 mins to Oxford. Beautiful surrounding countryside and easy to reach, quaint and interesting villages.

Will call back!

Stayed here last weekend in Stable Room 11. The room was very small so don't bring a lot of stuff with you. There is a wardrobe and some shelf space but not much. To be honest it was freezing when we first got there but after a night of having the heat on it was very cosy indeed. I think it had been unoccupied for a few days that's all. It was clean and perfectly adequate for a short stay. The pub itself was wonderful. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was to die for. Really nice menu and really well cooked and presented. The breakfast was huge and tasty. Juice, fruit and cereals. Full cooked English or scrambled eggs or smoked fish. Make your own toast. It was wonderful. Very close to Stow on the Wold, Broadway, Broadwell, Moreton In Marsh and Bourton on the Water. All well worth a visit indeed. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Stable room 11 is very small. It's outside the main pub but very cosy.

Just had a wonderful weekend stay at the lambs inn. Although room 12 was a little small, it was warm, comfy, clean and had everything we needed. The restaurant serves wonderful food, reasonably priced and good variety. The location is truly wonderful. The nearby villages are just so lovely and quant. Will def be coming back. Nice to see a pub that allows dogs .

We stayed here for one night. The room and ensuite were fine - clean, comfortable, although the kettle appeared to still have some cleaning product or other powder inside it so we did not use that. There was ample carparking available. As we walked into the inn, we passed a group of people leaving the restaurant, complaining that it had absolutely no charm or character and that they wouldn't visit again - we ended up with the same impression. The place feels like it was once at traditional inn that has since been bought by someone who is trying to transform the venue into more upper-class accommodation (and not succeeding).

The food at the restaurant was pretty terrible and incredibly overpriced. It felt like it was trying to be gourmet but failing miserably, so do not expect standard pub fare or an enjoyable gastro meal. The waiters were all dressed in black, so seemed more like it was trying for a restaurant rather than a traditional inn feel. We ordered a side of chips which cost 5 pounds, and received a cup with 7 (yes, 7!!!) chips inside. At a cost of almost 1 pound per potato chip (regardless of the fact that they were 'thickly cut'), we would never eat there again. The vegetarian risotto was OK, although not worth the price, and the chicken dish was average at best and similarly over-priced. As we ate, we overheard diners near us complaining that it was the worst duck they'd ever eaten, particularly at the price.

We had to leave early in the morning, but when we tried to leave, the door to outside was jammed shut, and we spent a good 15 minutes trying to open it as no staff could be found.

In short, we would not stay here again, and most definitely would never eat here. Avoid if possible.

Stayed 25 and 26th Jan, 2013. Staff were excellent, engaging and friendly. Locals were chatty and informative. For ex serviceman and those with interest in WW1 and WW2, the pub has info on downed Wellington where 5 of 6 crew were killed. Local church also has memorial to 5 Soul brothers all killed in WW1. Break fast was top quality with loads of choice. We ate in Restaurant which was a little quiet although food certainly made up for it. Had to leave early on Sunday and staff went out of their way to come in early so we could have breakfast. The room was very comfortable. The bed was of good quality. Shower was warm to hot but plenty of pressure. Overall a good location for traveling round. Will come back if in the area.

Room Tip: Room 1 is very quiet and away from bar overlooking green.
