We always stop by the Lion & Lamb en route to/ from Stansted; it's a great non-corporate way to catch up with friends and family before the long drive home (we no longer live in Cambridge, I've just not bothered to change my profile). The beer's great, food very good and very reasonably priced during the days on weekdays. They also have a more formal dining set-up which looks good though we've never dined a la carte here. Plenty of newspapers to browse, log fires when it's cold, good attitude towards children - I'd be very happy to have a local as good as this.

Booked a group of 40 for evening meal and all were taken in by the decor (amazing ceiling!) and atmosphere of this gem of a pub. Mike and his team were most welcoming and the food and service were excellent. My pint of Guinness was the best tasting of the whole trip! Only regret was that we couldn't stay longer because of our bus driver's hours! Really hope to visit again some day and will definitely recommend. Many thanks again, Mike!

We visit when seeing family in the area. One of the few pubs happy to serve food at 10pm. Good menu choices with freshly prepared large portions. Only minus is the price of drinks.

I visited the Lion and Lamb for a pub dinner, and had a pretty decent meal. The pub has real ale, and a fairly decent selection of largers and spirits.

The fish and chips portion was huge. Large piece of home cooked fish, crispy batter, a fresh side salad with lots of different types of salad, a big bowl of decent tartar sauce, let down slightly by bought in frozen/fried style chips. If they had been home made chips, this would have been the best fish and chips I've had in years. If the type of chips doesn't not bother you, and you like a huge portion of fish and chips, you'll have a great meal here.

Service was good and friendly, and the pub has a lovely cosy feel to it. Will stop in again and try something else next time i'm passing.

Worth a look for decent pub grub!

Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for your recent review, I was pleased to read that you enjoyed your visit to The Lion & Lamb. Thank you for your feedback on your meal, I will just respond by saying that our chips are not frozen and indeed brought in fresh. They are usually one of our most popular parts of the menu. Apologies that you didn’t enjoy them, I am however glad to hear that the fresh cod, crispy batter and freshly prepared salad made the meal enjoyable.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.



Kind regards,



Jack
