The Lamb Inn boasts it has 'luxury accommodation' and charges accordingly. We had booked a suite for a special weekend away treat and we were looking forward to it. The breakfast was very good and a wide range of options were offered. However standards at the evening meal in the restaurant were lacking. The table was set with "clean" wine... More

For pudding I had pear tart tatin with vanilla and cinnamon ice cream - this was to die for, one of the best puddings I... More

Having visited this area of Little Rissington and not in the mood to cook when we come and stay we go to this little gem of a pub. Excellent food and the bread, olives and whole bulbs of garlic are just lovely. Try the Lamb you will not be disappointed. Very friendly people too and they love dogs.

Dropped in on spec as had heard good things about this place, not disappointed. Charming service. Food prices seemed a bit steep for the area but we would return as it was good. Good ales as well. One reason we stopped was that I had heard it was good for vegetarians, not sure why as the vegetarian range was much... More

The food and service was wonderful, particularly the lamb with dauphinois potatoes. Highly recommend that you pay this restaurant a visit if you are in the area.

I have been coming to the Lamb Inn for over 35 years, mainly for a pint or two before a family lunch. Tonight was the first time I had been for an evening meal. Absolutely delicious. The pigeon first course was very tasty and cooked just right. The trout and fettuccine main course was excellent. If they run out of... More

My wife surprised me for my birthday with a couple of nights here. The room was nice, friendly staff and brilliant food. Nothing too much trouble. Only a stones throw from Bourton on the Water. Will definitely stay here again.

Popped in for a light lunch. I had pulled pork sandwich and my husband had the steak sandwich. Mine was very nice but maybe just didn't quite have enough flavour /salt. My husband loved his. The pub is in a nice place and inside it has been modernised and is nice and clean. The staff were lovely. Would go again.

Decided to pop in here for a light lunch and to make enquiries regarding booking a room. We looked at the menu and were going to have a sandwich but then saw a steak and couldn't resist. We had a side order of onion rings and have never had onion rings as big as these and as tasty. Worth a... More

Went here to dinner on Wednesday evening. As soon as we walked in and made our way towards the bar we could tell this was a warm welcoming place. The lady behind the bar was most pleasant and we were shown to a table by the waiter. We ordered the Wednesday evening special £10 steaks on the board. We didn't... More
