We booked the Lamb Inn for a short break because of the location (away from the tourists at Bourton on the Water 3 miles away) and the fact that they allowed pets. When I rang to enquire about the booking I was given lots of information about the accommodation and the area which helped the decision making process. We were greeted by a friendly member of staff and she made us feel welcome. We stayed in the Rissington suite which was perfect for us, lots of space, comfy leather sofa and functional. Good quality furniture in the bedroom and the bathroom had a large shower, not a tiny cubicle. Funky lighting in the shower and around the mirror above the basin.
We enjoyed our meals in the restaurant and were spoilt for choice when deciding. Most of the items on the menu were locally sourced and presented nicely. We were there with friends so we were able to sample most things on the menu. We found the service very good and the staff were attentive but not overbearing. The staff were also well informed about the menu and were happy to discuss menu options.
The weather was kind and we were able to take afternoon tea in the enclosed garden and later a post walk drink! There is a great 3 mile (ish) circular walk from The Lamb Inn, just ask for the map.
I asked if I could see the Garden suites before we left which we may consider if we book again. These are lovely suites away from the main buildings and again furnished to a very high standard. The pictures on the web site do not do the rooms justice, far nicer and we were pleasantly surprised.
The only negative aspect was the decor in the main entrance hall through to the main bar and restaurant. This area could do with a re vamp as it is the first area that the guests see.
Overall we had a lovely short break with our friends and Tilly the dog.
