Eat & Drink
It’s contemporary English cooking at The Lamb Inn, in a light and airy setting. Tuck into a duo of goat’s cheese, crab battered red mullet with fondant potato, puy lentils and a lemon grass sauce and then maybe peanut semifreddo with a banana fritter and toffee ice cream. If you arrive early enough, treat yourselves to a champagne afternoon tea. Dine al fresco in The Lamb's gorgeous garden in summertime.
Full breakfast is served until 9.30am. Menus major on local produce.
