Very disappointed. Read the previous reviews and our expectations were not met. No atmosphere, portions were small and expensive and to make matters worse we had to wait for nearly an hour before our meal arrived. My husband ordered the large scampi and my aunt asked for the small but there was no difference in the quantity. Would definately not... More

Lovely welcoming place to be. Clean and spacious rather than packed in. I was warned that the portions were large so I didn't have a starter although the menu looked great with a lot of choices for starters. I had a small portion of lasagna and it was rather generous, very tasty and fresh. Andy had the American gammon and... More

Visited The Lamb Inn as we were over for a long weekend in Devon with family. Upon arrival the pub looked very clean and welcoming, nothing special that caught our eye, but received a nice greeting from the owner. The menus were varied as was the specials board. We all enjoyed our food from starter to desserts, the only thing... More

Visited The Lamb Inn several times. Always a lovely meal served and prepared by great staff who look after their customers. Immaculately clean and welcoming. Remains a favourite especially for Sunday lunch.

This pub and restaurant has a lovely, friendly feel to it. The landlady was attentive and we were made to feel welcome. Extensive menu with varying portion sizes too. Plenty of food on the plate. Specials board. We will 100% be returning

We found the Lamb a couple of months ago and have been back since because it is a cut above the average pub. The menu is more varied than the average and the quality, service, presentation and value has been faultless. (and I like to find fault). It is always dangerous to share good reviews because if you all go... More

We have recently moved to the village and have dined at the Lamb several times, with family and as a couple. The food is delicious, fresh and tasty, with a tempting specials board to add to the extensive menu. My parents tried the curry and were delighted, my steak was perfectly cooked and very tasty, and the fish and seafood... More

Again another lovely lunch at The Lamb Inn at Longdown. Smiling landlady, remembered Jasper's favourite drink and lunch. Lovely tasty haddock with salad and chips. Good value for money and they do wonderful Sunday roasts.

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

We stopped here for lunch while out for a drive. It was an excellent find, with the hostess very hospitable and helpful. 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
