"Staff friendly and helpful rooms clean and warm."

Visit Lamb and Lion in February was warmly welcomed and shown to room, cosy and warm , enjoyed a evening meal for the 3 nights I stayed soup delicious, chips very good but suggest caesar salad could be improved. All in all a very excellent hotel.

"Just what we wanted. Central, historic, friendly, real ale and well prepared food."

We asked for a quiet room and that is what we got so very pleased. It was in the attic on the second floor so no pub noise or heat from below but access was a challenge with steep and awkward stairs. The room was spacious, the bathroom adequate but small. Decor was historic in tune with the building and clean but could be much improved with a timely uplift to bathroom and roof windows.

"Noisy road"

Room very clean and comfortable however single glazed so extremely noisy, traffic, pedestrians, loading etc. Downside as bed/pillows very comfortable and room was warm. Staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

"Great experience"

Nice, helpful staff...rooms were a bit noisy at the front due to passing drunks but we moved to the back of the hotel. Double glazing the front would help if permitted.
