The third venture from Peter Creed and Tom Noest, who also own The Bell Inn Langford and run Little Bell at Soho Farmhouse, this is exactly what you might expect: a lovely, modern country pub with rooms that showcases the duo’s passion for classic British food. Relax in the cosy bar, or the large beer garden in the summer, before sitting down to eat in the restaurant. Tom heads up the kitchen, preparing traditional favourites (fish and chips, double cheeseburgers, steaks) alongside interesting, simple dishes that celebrate seasonal ingredients, offal and game. There are ten comfortable rooms have beamed ceilings, antique furniture and ensuite walk-in showers (the biggest also have roll-top baths) – they make an ideal sanctuary after a day exploring the Cotswolds. The pub itself is in the pretty village of Shipton-Under-Wynchwood and there is plenty to discover nearby, from Burford and Chipping Norton to the Batsford Arboretum and Cotswold Farm Park. The Lamb Inn can also arrange all kinds of pursuit days, from deer stalking and pigeon shooting to coarse fishing and simulated game.
