The Sunday roast at the lamb Inn is one of the best home cooked roasts I have ever eaten. I highly recommend.

Two of us had the Ploughman's lunch (one ham, the other Devon blue cheese) and two had the brunch. The food was very well presented, very tasty and excellent value. Service was polite and efficient - very well... More

Went with a party of 16 fora pre-arranged lunchtime visit We were made very welcome. The food was excellent and good value for money. The staff were attentive without being obtrusive. What more could one ask for?

Were really made very welcome, as were our dogs. They couldn't be more helpful in advising what foods were dairy/gluten free. Although quite busy, our food arrived promptly and was piping hot as well as being delicious. Desserts were reasonably priced and all the above adjectives can also be applied. Will certainly use The Lamb again when we are in... More

Pulled into this pub by chance on a drive back from Dartmoor National Park. The hostess behind the bar was incredibly, superbly friendly. The pub was about 1/4 full, could of tables eating. We thought we'd take a punt. First red flag was that the specials menu was quite vast and all over the place in culinary background. Thai curry,... More

It's been a while since we've been here so it was nice to get re-aquainted. This was a lovely evening out. Surprisingly not over busy but enough people to give the place a buzz. The food was excellent with a nice mix of fish/meat/veggie. The specials were just that and not using up what they couldn't sell last week. The... More
