First visit for a long time. Expected it to be busy at lunchtime so close to Christmas but not at all. Don't know why as the food, service and general ambience was lovely. Definitely recommended and will certainly go back.

Food was perfect for a Sunday lunch, and the pub is beautiful albeit there is a slightly odd smell outside!and Miranda the waitress is a credit to the team, very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Will be back.

A great old English village pub. The beers were reasonably priced, the lamb dinner was excellent and very tasty. As a discerning New Zealander I know my lamb and I can say "compliments to the chef". The people in the pub are just normal folk and it was a pleasant change from the rat-race of London that I had come... More

Came here for a family birthday on a Sunday. We all had roasts. All very nice, only complaint was that the vegetables in a shared bowl were very hard. Friendly helpful staff.

Friendly traditional pub atmosphere. We were a party of eight adults. Staff were efficient and helpful. We chose to switch from our original (near the loo) pub area dining to the main restaurant, in fact the conservatory. The food was well presented but generally overcooked and reheated. The sort of standard accepted 20 years ago. This could be a great... More

My sister and I have just returned from the Lion and lamb after I had recommended it to her after a previous delicious meal here. I have never ever left a review on trip advisor but felt obliged to do so. We had booked a table for 2 and when we arrived we informed the male bartender who stared at... More

The 2nd visit at the space but no opportunity to see alive karaoke or animation. Nice pub with nice food. Good beef steak. Nice for a great afternoon in the British winter period, with the lads drinking a delicious pint <Guinness> my preference.

It was a cold November Sunday, I was poorly and the other half was hungover, we both fancied a pub lunch. The Lion & Lamb is close to home and we didn't need a booking (we sat in the bar area). The menu is extensive and there's a good range of dishes to suit everyone. I had Bangers and Mash... More

Came across this pub by chance when out working and looking for some lunch. Friendly welcome and quick service. The food was really good - ham, egg and chips - nothing fancy but good portions and really tasty. My colleague had the steak pie and was equally pleased.

Thank Lord_Brett_Sinclair
