Appealing Cotswold inn with olde-worlde vibe

Sitting centre stage in Sheep Street, The Lamb Inn was a one-time gathering place for local Cotswolds shepherds. Now, tired townies flock here for reviving country weekends.

It’s contemporary English cooking at The Lamb Inn, in a light and airy setting. Tuck into a duo of goat’s cheese, crab battered red mullet with fondant potato, puy lentils and a lemon grass sauce and then maybe peanut semifreddo with a banana fritter and toffee ice cream. If you arrive early enough, treat yourselves to a champagne afternoon tea. Dine al fresco in The Lamb's gorgeous garden in summertime.

Full breakfast is served until 9.30am. Menus major on local produce.
