Last visited the Lamb in June 2016, went back to ensure it wasn't a one off. Again we were made most welcome, including the dogs. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble to accommodate my wife's restrictive diet. Food was excellent, served in good time and was reasonably priced. My pet hate of rock hard butter packs straight from the... More

We have gone here for an evening meal quite a few times but decided to try their Sunday roast. What a lovely treat. The owners and staff are always so friendly and attentive. The roast is the best we have had in a very long time. The vegetables were all fresh and the meat was delicious. We totally enjoyed it... More

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
