The Lamb Inn is truly a family pub in more ways than one and you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome.
At The Lamb we specialise in ‘traditional pub food’, all freshly cooked on the premises using fresh locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.

As well as a regular menu featuring a wide range of dishes, including steaks, pasta, fish, curries and jacket potatoes, there are daily specials written up on boards around the pub. There's also a weekly special, where one of the most popular meals on the menu is available for just £5.99. Tea and coffee are available all day.

On Sundays we always offer the traditional choice of roast beef, lamb or chicken.

Dogs are also welcome if kept on leads.

    Excellent food - the meat just fell off the lamb shank and the hock. Vegetables were frozen, but cooked perfectly. The spotted dick and treacle pudding were superb. And all at good value for what you got, with a wide range of choices on the menu. Staff were friendly and helpful. Lovely decor.

    We made the booking with open table, when we got there they hadn't received it. We were found a table, no menus were given, or told of the specials. The food came promptly and was good. It does make me wonder should I have phoned for the booking, to clarify more.

    Staff at The Lamb are lovely, and it's a nice pub to eat in. Good value for money. I was personally a little disappointed by the food this time, the ham from my ham egg and chips was processed and formed, rather than carved from a joint, but it was perfectly edible. They do offer Sunday roasts, but these are not carved meat from a joint.

    We were too late for a full meal but the waiter could not have been more helpful. We settled for starters and chips and they were delicious! The bar was very noisy but we ate in peace outside under an awning and admired the dramatic sunset.

    Very pleasant staff but service was a bit slow. However, when each course did come out all six of us were served at the same time which was good. Venue chosen mainly because we had a dog with us, but there was also a good choice of food.
