We booked as a last minute overnight stay. We were in the Garden suite, a lovely welcome and the great service and rapport continued throughout our stay. The pub is traditional, the room clean, stylish but cosy too. Nice crisp bed linen and good quality pillows. The breakfast was fabulous, well cooked local produce. We would definitely stay again, the...

Enjoyed a delightful lunch this afternoon. Great food, I choose the bacon, chicken and avocardo salad, good wine and the chocolate fondant oozed! All served with lovely smiles and will definitely be returning.

We stay fairly regularly at the Lamb, and we do so because the rooms are comfy, and the food excellent. Even the parking isn't as bad as some people make out, we have always found somewhere within a couple of hundred yards. The rooms are really comfortable with superb beds and excellent sheets and pillows, and we have always had...

The last room available was very small but adequate and in fairness we were told this and this was reflected in the price. If I had to mention a few very small criticisms it would...

We loved the combination of a welcoming traditional pub with log fires etc downstairs and boutique styled bedrooms upstairs. We had a lovely warm welcome, as did our two dogs, and we knew we had made a lucky find. And then we even had a fabulous dinner, some of the best monkfish I have had for ages! Add to that...

We had a meal here as we happened to be staying elsewhere in the village of Sandford. The food was excellent. Shame about the sweary barmaid, though. If she must eff and blind she should do it under her breath, not so that the whole pub can hear. Would've given five stars otherwise.

I agree with previous reviewers who noted that this is a "classic" Devon pub (beams, lively, warm, welcoming, local) with a really imaginative and enjoyable menu. In fact, such classic Devon pubs of this calibre are few and far between nowadays. I would be happy to spend time with a drink here any time. However, my visit was for a...
