We have just returned from a summer special break at the Lamb. We had eaten there before but never stayed over; this time we opted for the D+B&B break. It was great value as the venue, rooms, staff and food are terrific. The real highlight was relaxinfg in the beaufiful classic English garden with afternoon tea and a very large jug of Pimms (part of the deal). The staff were very good; attentive and very professional. We ate both nights in the main restaurant which is very atmosperic with lovely modern paintings and traditional decor. The food is modern British with some superb elements; for example, the crayfish and scallop starters and the lamb loin main. I would also recommend the White Rioja which is very reasonably priced and goes very well with the smoked haddock.. Do have "early doors" drinks in the garden as they bring a good selection of nibbles with them and ensure you have sausage for breakfast. We worked up an appitite by walking to "The Barringons" two viliages approx 3 miles (6-7 miles round trip) from Burford (ask at reception for a map). The route followes the river Windrush and there is a convienient pub (The Fox) at Little Barrington about half way where one can stop for a pie and a pint. All in all a superp three day break. Burford too as an old wool town gas a lot to offer for those of us who enjoy the good things in life.
