My wife and I (plus DJ the dachshund) stayed at The Lamb on 17/01/14. We had been looking for dog friendly pub accomodation in the Cotswolds and decided to try The Lamb Inn at Great Rissington and are we glad we did,or what?
We received a warm welcome from the staff and were shown to our room, the Windrush Suite. It was lovely and cosey. The bar and restaurant have been newly refurbished to a high standard with a great selection of real ales,so i was more than happy! We chatted to Paul (the owner). A really friendly chap who is obviously very passionate about his business.
We reserved a table in the bar for an evening meal. This is recommended as by 7.00 pm the bar was filling up nicely. Seated next to the log burner we ordered from the specials board. Cheese and bacon topped burger with triple cooked chips for me, whilst my wife chose the steak & mushroon pie with mash. The portions were very generous and both dishes were of exellent quality and value for money. Washed down with a couple of pints,i couldn't manage a sweet. My wife,however,decided to try the chocolate brownie with raspberry sorbet. This was no ordinary dish.......absolutely delicious!!
By now, we were both ready for bed. DJ on the otherhand was more interested in making friends with the locals. We had to drag him away,otherwise we'd still be there ! A long day had caught up with us and as soon as our heads hit the pillow,that was it ...ZZZzzzzzzzzzz. We slept soundly in a very comfy bed !
In the morning,fresh from polishing off a super full english for breakfast, we said our goodbyes,safe in the knowledge that we would return one day to this little gem of a place.
Recommended to all.
