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.
