We landed in Sandford after a long, tiring, wet journey from Penzance. But once walked into the Lamb we were immediately made to feel welcome in this friendly local pub. We had a very tasty supper with an excellent fig starter and my fish main course was a delicious and varied dish.

Our room had everything that we needed, with an especially comfortable bed in a large room overlooking the quiet street.

Thank you for your hospitality. Thanks too for returning the cardigan that I somehow left on my chair after breakfast!

Unfortunately I, as one of the party of four, found the main chicken meal was ruined for me by too much salt. I didn’t wish to embarrass my hosts by complaining, but was up all night drinking water (I’d drunk three glasses of lime soda, no alcohol).

A lovely old inn in a central village location not too far out from Exeter. All staff were friendly and welcoming. Great home cooked food and service. Highly recommend a visit.

Lovely spot and a quiet garden. Food was excellent. I suspect a wasps nest is nearby so it ought to be removed.

Friendly service and very comfortable. Will be back to the Lamb soon!

Very good food for the price, really impressed.
Not a lot to choose from though that would be the only recommendation.

Ok as a country pub a bit expensive though. Staff friendly enough but not trained in service. I do not like being asked if I would like to leave a tip. some people would find this intimidating.

Friendly staff. Amazing food, I would recommend the pork belly! Nice cosy atmosphere, could have done with some background music.
