The Lamb Inn
Anne, Stuart, Jane, Evie, Dave and I went for a Sunday roast on a cold winter’s day. The restaurant was warm and cosy and the staff and owner super welcoming. Between five of us we chose the roast beef and horseradish sauce; roast lamb and mint sauce; and roast pork and apple sauce (all £12.50). Our traditional roast dinners were served with Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, mash and vegetables. Jane had a vegetarian meal and I must say I was very impressed that they had 3 choices on the menu. These were sweet potato, chickpea and spinach curry (£11.95); beetroot, butternut squash and goats cheese cakes (£10.95); and Korean aubergine and vegetable curry (£10.95). They also have vegan and gluten free meals on offer.
I think this is a great venue for a Sunday lunch. The meal was not fantastic as there was a little too much fat on the lamb. And the beef was slightly overcooked for my liking. But, the atmosphere more than made up for that. In summer you will be able to sit outside and make the most of the English countryside. There are plenty of beers on tap which the men tried. Anne and I stuck to gin, and Evie had wine. The total for 6 of us, including gratuity came to £138.

Hi Tandy, So pleased you enjoyed the ‘pub’ experience. Although husband and I are retired in Spain, we were born in the UK and used to regularly take relatives out for lunch to various pubs, mainly in Essex and London. They were usually more reasonably priced and good value and standard. Cheers! x
We try and have a pub lunch or two every time we are in the UK as it is a unique experience 🙂
What a lovely old building..
It really is.
What a gorgeous building and to have three vegetarian options on the menu is amazing. I love the food, it is so homely and would definitely be wonderful.
It is very homely 🙂
this sounds like a great place to go. We had a chance to visit Oxford a couple of years ago, and it was one of our favorite places. We hope to go back in two years, and will add this pub to our list. I love the fact that they have some vegetarian options (and beer!).
We love Oxford and all the little hideaways such as this.
Looks warm and comforting! So nice to see a pic of you too! 😀
I don’t usually do that 😉
Sunday dinner in a pub is definitely a great experience. I hate to say it, but your description of the lamb and beef sound like truly traditional British cooking — they like it well done! We have spent more time in Cambridge than in Oxford, but there are similar historic places, and in fact also in many other small towns in England.

They do indeed! We had planned to go to Cambridge but sadly did not get there as the baby was not well 🙂
that’s a lovely family snap tandy. seems like a good price for that lunch:) england has such great pubs.
It is expensive compared to South Africa! And thanks, it was lovely to get a photo of the 3 generations 🙂
I have made a note of this restaurant, Tandy. I am hoping this Coronavirus anxiety is over soon as we can still go to the UK in August.
I can see no reason why you should not be able to go.
