“New and raring to go!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

New owners are trying very hard and doing a good job. First visit I had the lamb burger which was amazing. Second visit they had sold out of everything we fancied on the menu, so they made us some starters with chips. We had omelettes and quiches which were small (starters) but very tasty. As in other reviews the service was quite slow but the pub was busy on both visits. Locals night is on a Tuesday and isn't such a good deal as it used to be, now two courses for £13 from a limited menu. The manager and staff are very friendly and the beer is good too. Well worth a visit if you are not in a rush.

“Perfect Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Drove past on the way to the beach and thought it looked nice - I'm so glad we came back for lunch. Possibly the best tasting fish and chips I've ever had. Fish and batter just melted in the mouth, chips were delicious and the homemade tartar sauce was incredible. The service was good, a little slow at times (understandable as the pub was rammed) but really really friendly. Was a real pleasure to spend the afternoon here.

The pub was beautifully decorated, and the two open fires were exactly what we needed after being swept away at the beach.

Will definitely be back in the summer, but will book in advance as it was busy and we were lucky to get a table.

“New season's Lamb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

The Lamb Inn has been taken over recently by the Samphire team and it's now a definite go-to restaurant in the Itchenor/Witterings area. It's been redecorated in a contemporary way and the ambience is good, as is the food. We had a family supper there for eight and they handled the orders and service well - not always the case with a large party. It was the Saturday of the Easter weekend and pretty full, but the owner told me they'd done 140 covers the week before so make sure and book as there's going to be big demand from the weekenders and the yachties when the weather perks up.

“Much improved”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Recently refurbished inside and out and what a difference. Lots of beams, traditional decor with a modern twist. Good beer. Excellent food but service quite slow at peak times. Nice rear garden. Under the new management the Lamb should be very successful. Well done all, you've turned a drab, dreary pub into somewhere very pleasant and well worth visiting.

“As long as you are not in a hurry!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Ambiance definitely much nicer since refurb. Menu basic but absolutely fine - £9 or so for a lamb burger, £20 for a steak. Chips are deliciously upmarket.
We had to wait over an hour for any food to arrive though so, even if you have booked as we did, don't bother visiting when it's busy or if you are hungry!
