The Lion & Lamb has been our local for 7 years now, and we come here often for the beer selection and also the very good food - both from the bar menu and also the restaurant side. When we moved into our new house around the corner a few years ago, the pub had an open day with bouncy castles and music for all the new local home owners - a new development had started to be built - so we decided to see what was what. The pub was (and still is) very warm ansd welcoming, with friendly staff and a good selection of real ales, which i love! There is an open fire in the colder months and a large beer garden with views across the fields. The bar menu is good value and the choice is huge. The food is also very good, from roast beef salads to fish and chips, its all fresh and cooked to perfection.
If you want something more substantial or you have a special occasion to celebrate, try the restaurant - you can choose to sit in the conservatory and the food is even better - a step up from the bar menu with proper, resaurant type meals.
This is a great country pub - if you are passing, stop by and give it a go!

After failing to find anywhere to eat in Gt Dunmow between 5-6pm, this pub turned out to be a smashing find. The service was friendly and warm. The food was good value and tasty. The pub has memorabilia from the American Airforce during WWII who were based locally which is so interesting.

Lovely décor and reasonably good service but cooking standards have seriously slipped and no longer justify the menu prices. What a shame!

Food ok, big portions, but pub is very run down and needs some TLC. Baby change was rotten I changed my baby in the car. Furniture falling apart. Nothing in beer garden for kids.
