The Lamb had been recommended to us for a nice country lunch, so we showed up without a reservation and were seated in the bar after about 20 minutes. The menu was interesting, and the food was nicely presented and very tasty. Unfortunately though, our young waiter was utterly miserable. It was as if every interaction with a customer was... More

Can be perceived as overpriced however if you visit the the High Street eatery's then you will appreciate this Restaurant and its choice of menu. We booked at the last minute (9 persons) and the waiter was welcoming, knowledgeable in relation to food and wines and very attentive. We would definitely eat here again.

Didn't start well; my wife tried to book a dinner table for 6 and a deposit of £10 for each was demanded. When she refused, she was put through to the manager who ranted about no-shows and ticked off my wife for interrupting his flow saying she wasn't interested about their problems and just wanted to reserve a table. In... More

We ate breakfast and dinner several times in the spring. The kitchen makes excellent food and the service was as good. Fine dining experience.

Birthday celebration for 12 guests - grandparents, parents, grandchildren. It really was perfect. If I criticised The Lamb on this visit, I'd be guilty of pedantry. As a fairly regular customer, the Lamb passes all basic tests of comfort, cooking and cost. The acid test of suitability and pleasure is 'would I go there again?' Most certainly !

Went here for my Birthday at the weekend and it was fabulous. Lovely cozy atmosphere and a friendly welcome when we got there. We sat by the fire and chose our food and had gorgeous complimentary canapes bought to us. We were then asked to come to the table and our drinks were carried for us! The restaurant was beautifully... More

Our 3 AA rosette cotswolds restaurant is located on a quaint side street in the heart of Burford, famed for its sheep fairs of times gone by when our historic hotel, was once a collection of weavers cottages. This history teamed with our outstanding food and friendly service makes for a great location for lunch or dinner in Burford. Fine dining is where our Chef shines and we have an inspiring tasting menu with wines to match that we know you're going to love. Indulge in seasonal plates of food that celebrate the fantastic flavours of our local ingredients whilst relaxing in an ambiance that is both intimate and homely. On Sundays, join us with family and friends for a traditional Sunday lunch, nothing fussy, just good food done really well.
