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.

    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.

    The food overall was excellent and the service was also very good. The beef was the best my husband had had for a long time. Perfectly cooked and very tender and tasty. My vegan curry was disappointing. A few vegetables in a sauce with rice for £13.50 was not good. No popadoms or chutney or yoghurt or anything. The fish was excellent and the puddings were delicious and very reasonably priced. My husband only wanted one scoop of ice cream and was only charged £2.00 which was very reasonable. Overall a very happy experience. Vegan food is on the increase so that needs to be made more interesting.

    Had the set menu as it fitted well with the fish options we wanted. Food was superb, service as ever was excellent. No doubt there are less expensive places around but what you get here is tremendous value for money coupled with a fantastic meal.

    It was excellent. The crispy duck starter is amazing and the prosecco is the best I have ever tasted. The staff were friendly and attentive and could not have looked after us better! The Spanish brandy was also excellent. They changed the mash potatoes on my main course to chips as I don't do dairy. Wonderful dining experience.
