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.

    Seated upstairs in this beautiful old building. Lovely atmosphere added to by the lovely fire and Christmas decor. There were many things we fancied off the menu, the four of us chose different dishes and none of us were disappointed. The Squid starter was delicious and my partner had to fend us off as we all had a taste! Staff were most welcoming and attentive. We will definitely by eating here again. Well done Lambs and thank you all for a lovely early evening dinner. We went to the RSC afterwards but we won’t need the theatre as an excuse to visit again.

    Excellant food & service with the ambiance of the restaurant.

    Excellent food as always, service very well balanced, attentive but not intrusive. For starter I had smoked salmon risotto with deep fried egg which was delicious and my wife had scallops with creamed corn which she said was exemplary. For mains I had lamb shank which melted in the mouth - absolutely delicious. My wife had her favourite Lambs dish for main course, liver which lived up to all of her expectations. Whilst my wife declined dessert I chose panacotta accompanied by an espresso coffee and a shot of amaretto which was sublime to say the least. Lambs is our restaurant of choice whenever we visit Stratford-upon-Avon and this visit certainly didn’t disappoint, a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

    Our favourite restaurant- never fails to deliver

    Excellent for pre-theatre dining. White wine rather too cold, hard to detect flavour.

  • By Michael S from Frodsham

    As excellent as usual - we always eat here when we go to Stratford. Good food, good service and convenient for theatre. The early evening pre-theatre menu is very good value.
