Review on The Lamb Inn
Originally a group of weavers' cottages, the Lamb Inn is a classic of its kind, with wisteria-clad walls, pretty gardens and an interior that is etched with history. Full meals are served in the elegant dining room overlooking the courtyard terrace, and the kitchen provides a slate of inventive modern dishes based around native ingredients.
To start you could try grilled mackerel with saffron-pickled vegetables or a terrine of wild rabbit with jokey haricot beans 'on toast'. Main courses follow a similar path, ranging from pan-fried salmon with pesto mash, tomato and chilli sauce to braised shoulder of lamb with parsnip purée and buttered cabbage, while desserts could feature plum tarte Tatin with plum sorbet, walnut pie with maple syrup ice cream, and frozen apple roulade with cinnamon crème fraîche and apple jam. The 70-bin wine list offers decent drinking and fair prices across the range.
Real ales and light meals are served in the stone-flagged bar, where the menu ranges from sandwiches and steak and chips to fish specials like grilled sea bass on mushroom and tarragon risotto. In warm weather, relax, eat, drink and chat on the courtyard terrace and chill out in the pretty cottage garden.
