Visited the lamb for the first time in early May for dinner with my partner and parents. Great atmosphere lovely staff. Fantastic menu with lots of vegetarian options and the food was top notch. All in all a very good experience will definitely go back.

Seven of us went for Father's Day and there wasn't one single criticism. Beers and wines were all excellent. Service was good. We'll definitely go again. Four of us had the slow roasted brisket of beef which was particularly good.

We went with friends who live locally and like their food, so we weren't disappointed. It was busy but we had booked a table and the bar was pretty busy as everyone had come in to escape the heavy rainstorm. Five of us had an extremely good pub lunch, simple but very tasty and good-sized helpings. I made the most...

Be prepared on a busy evening for there to be a wait between courses but it is worth it. There is a very good friendly atmosphere in the pub. The food choice is good as is the result of one's choice. Excellent tasty food. Service is very friendly. The kitchen catered for my food intolerances with reasonable ease. We were...

We went on a Tuesday evening for our anniversary to find that Tuesday is Steak Night (two steaks for £16). We had booked a table but many others just turned up and the consequence was that the kitchen and staff were rather overwhelmed. Nevertheless we had a good meal and the staff were very friendly. The quail starter and Stone...

We stayed at the Lamb on a Saturday night. We booked only that afternoon and received a friendly welcome. The room we had was spacious, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was excellent. We ate a very good dinner in the bar which is very cosy. The breakfast the next morning was excellent. Unfortunately the pub has no car park. But...

A pleasant welcome began our stay. We had a spacious bedroom, clean and well equipped. Enjoyed our evening meal and excellent breakfast. The only downside was there was no parking, but we could unload outside and park the car at the Village Hall.
