Hotel information

This ancient inn, originally built in 1420 as a weaver's cottages, is in complete harmony with its delightful situation in the Cotswolds.

Lined with trees and cool green lawns, behind which are set picturesque Cotswold limestone homes reflecting the historic affluence of the town, Sheep Street is the setting for the Lamb Inn. From its wisteria-clad walls, stone-flagged bar, charming dining room to beautifully refurbished bedrooms, the Lamb has been delightfully restored to create the comfort of today, while retaining the atmosphere of yesteryear.

Food & beverage

Overlooking the courtyard terrace, the Lamb Restaurant has a light and airy atmosphere. The finest fresh ingredients, many produced locally, are used to create contemporary English cuisine, with strong traditional influences.

The extensive cellar offers a fine choice of specially selected wines from the Old and New Worlds.

Alternatively, lighter meals can be enjoyed in the hotel’s comfortable bar and lounge areas, which also features the daily fish menu.
