Description: Our fantastic team of chefs are taking the food at The Lamb to the next level. We offer beautifully cooked seasonal dishes throughout the day, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. With a menu full of freshly prepared works of art using some locally sourced produce you will not find a better offering in the area. Our produce is delivered daily, our fish comes from M & J seafood and our meat is sourced from around the UK from Solent butchers. The Lamb smoke their own fish, bake their own bread and make their own pasta. From delicious traditional British meals to a handful of dishes from different origins you are sure to find a dish to suit all tastes and appetite. Our delightfully lighter menu option in the bar area includes a sandwiches selection and boards during the day and home-made bar snacks with scrumptious scotch eggs and sausage rolls to have with a pint of Youngs or glass of wine. We serve food in our dining room and bar,we can accommodate whatever occasion you would like to share with us. Small social gatherings, business lunches or family feasts. But who needs an excuse to treat yourself, just drop by and simply enjoy a relaxing evening and let us make any day a special occasion. We have 2 private dining rooms The Meddling Pike which has its own bar and can seat up to 12 people and The Wylye Duck has its own private terrace and can accommodate up to 45 for a buffet and 30 people seated. Sunday's are something we like to shout about and our Sunday roasts are highly popular with locals and families. So please ensure you book in advance. We offer Children's meals including Sunday roasts the little ones can join in the Sunday fun.

We visited this pub on the spur of the moment to break up a long journey home following a day watching rugby at Twickenham. My husband had found The Lamb some years ago and had enjoyed a meal there, so thanks to his strong sense of direction (and ever-present need for a good meal) we pulled up outside with high expectations on a gloriously sunny evening.
It was busy, with people enjoying drinks on the terrace and many reserved tables inside, but the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, a table was found for us both inside for dining and outside on the sunny terrace where we relaxed with a good glass of wine. The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu; our meals arrived after about 25 minutes and we were shown to our table in the dining room/bar area. There were linen napkins and ground salt and pepper pots on scrubbed pine tables, and a happy, busy atmosphere. After our hectic day out we'd opted for the home-made burgers with a variety of accompaniments and were not disappointed; they were delicious and beautifully presented. With coffees to finish, our bill was about £30 which we thought was good value.
We would definitely go there again if passing on the A303 - its about 5 minutes south of here in a picturesque village with plenty of parking opposite.

This was our second visit to The Lamb. As previously, the decor and atmosphere were perfect, old world country pub with a Scottish decorative flare. The food was OK, I had a blue vinny rocket salad followed by sausages with mash and the special of the day dessert, the iced banana parfait. The blue vinny was delectable as always but the accompanying salad lacked gusto and the vinny portion could have been more generous. The sausage and mash was lovely. The dessert needed a ice pick to make it to the spoon and although large, quickly became a little boring after a few mouth fulls.

There was a slight error on our bill with a bottle of wine we had selected but which we were told was out of stock being included. This was quickly rectified when we alerted staff. Drinks ordered mid main course took an age to come which meant we were left with beer and coke as accompaniments to dessert rather than the usual coffes we would have liked to order!

Overall, we enjoyed the meal as the atmosphere, decoration and location of the pub still go a long way to making it a lovely evening in this picturesque village. These factors considerably compensated for the few small gripes!

Ate here one wet & wild night. Difficult to negotiate if you have mobility problems. Steps down to restaurant & within restaurant. Nice decor. Food ok. My Mum has a small appetite-had soup as a main-lots of bread arrived for her & then the smallest bowl of soup. Sevice ok-waited a long time for dessert which was then lukewarm. Wouldn't recommend it to be honest but not terrible.

Whilst our visit was not quite up to the standard we had a few years ago, we had an enjoyable meal. It was apparant that some of the staff needed training in 'service' that said they were still very friendly. The food was 'good' with some room for improvment eg; portion size. Over all we will be meeting our friends for a meal here again.

awful surroundings you could hear a pin drop in that place not comfortable at all for the price the food was below par.
The only good thing about the lamb was the door that said exit so i did rather quickly
