Restaurant description

Retaining many of its original features, Lambs restaurant is one of the oldest buildings in Stratford-Upon-Avon. The menu draws upon British and Mediterranean influences, using fresh, local produce to create hearty, flavoursome dishes.

Guests can tuck into a breast of Gressingham duck with cabbage, bacon and croquette potatoes, or savour the forest mushroom risotto with parmesan crisp and truffle oil. Other enticing offerings include baked figs with blue cheese and serrano ham, and home-cured and Applewood-smoked salmon with celeriac rémoulade. Lambs also offers a special fish menu complete with Cornish crab and clam linguine, and crispy squid with chorizo, chickpeas and sun-dried tomatoes.

For dessert, guests can try a coffee and Tia Maria cheesecake, vanilla panna cotta or cheese and biscuits with quince jelly. Lambs restaurant in Stratford also boasts a children’s menu and a lengthy wine list. The smart décor befits the original oak beams and low ceilings of this 16th-century inn.

A short stroll from the River Avon, Lambs restaurant is a 12-minute walk from Stratford-Upon-Avon Train Station.

    Entirely excellent, considerate, and - since we were late and both of us had booked tables independently, and we went on well beyond closing time for lunch - kind.

    What a gem of a restaurant! Really well prepared and seasoned food, great welcoming service and truly quaint traditional setting. Will always visit when I’m in Stratford.

    We had booked lunch on the Saturday of the Shakespeare Birthday Celebrations, so we weren't a bit surprised that the restaurant was full and buzzing. I cannot remember having such a delicious meal. The staff were attentive but not overly so, and we enjoyed a convivial time with good friends, food and wine and were more than satisfied with the price.
