Recently had a 40th birthday party here for about 70 people. The friendly staff were all keen to help with the setting up, and all ages were made to feel really welcome. It is a great venue for a party, there are plenty of disco lights, a good PA system and the team can cater to any food requirements.

Nipped in a couple of times at early doors time when on holiday. Took baby in which was fine, staff and locals friendly and cider was spot on.

My wife and I fancied an easy meal last week and dropped into the Lamb and Flag. We had a nice pub meal, scampi and chips and a mixed fish platter. What the restaurant area lacked in ambiance was more than made up for by the very friendly waiting and quick service. Thanks.

Paella, papas bravas, pinchitos, ensalada, aceitunas, queso manchego, sangria, etc. Whatever ideas Angie can pull out of her hat it is always a tremendous success. Very often I think my students attend... More

Pricey room for what is essentially a room over a pub, however the room was massive and more like a suite with separate area with sofa and additional TV. Evening meal was very slow to arrive but tasted good as did the breakfast. Back area/ stairs could do with a tidy up and a bit of love but the room... More

We were searching for a good place which was Veggie friendly on arriving to Ottery St Mary for a half term break. We found a link to The Lamb & Flag Inn on here and thought we would give it a try. The pub has two entrances, left for the bar, right for the restaurant. The decor is fine for... More
