The Experience

On Sheep Street, of course, The Lamb started life in the 15th century as a simple weaver’s cottage. Now the feel is altogether more luxurious… cosy in winter, lovely in the sunny, sheltered garden. After browsing the handsome High Street with its medieval, Tudor and Georgian facades, an aperitif or a pint by the magnificent fireplace is a fine way to start the evening. 

You dine, in a light, elegant and slightly funky restaurant overlooking the garden, on great quality, locally sourced food like trout from Bibury, lamb from Barnsley and Wye Valley asparagus. Breakfast bacon and eggs are from a neighbouring farm.

Come with your dog – there’s a room with a private garden that is ideal – and delightful walking in the Windrush River Valley.

The neighbourhood

Two-minutes’ walk away is Burford’s High Street with its antiques, clothing and food shops and good places to eat from traditional British at the Maytime and Huffkins, to Asian at the Spice Lounge. Tea at Great Rissington Manor, 15-minutes’ drive away, is a real treat. There are excellent guided walks at nearby Lodge Park (NT) its grounds designed by Bridgeman, and circular walks from Burford taking in Swinbrook and Asthall by the river Windrush.
