Overview

The Review

Off the beaten track yet not too far removed from the U.K.’s cultural centers, the Lamb Inn is a pastoral base for taking in the English countryside and all its delights, like locally produced cheeses, exquisite beers and whiskeys, and never-ending fields of wildflowers.

When you’re not relaxing by one of the inglenook fireplaces surrounded by rare antiques, you can indulge in a precision reflexology treatment or go for a nature walk to the Wylye Valley through fields awash in bluebells and purple orchids. In Hindon, even in the heart of winter, the Lamb Inn is a cozy place to drop anchor and relax.

Beyond its Old World architecture and artisan past, Hindon benefits from being removed, but not too far. It’s a half-hour drive east to Salisbury and two hours east to London.

Dressed in the Boisdale style with tartan accents, this 19-room inn has a very loyal following, and for good reason.

The inn’s backdrop has a lot to do with it. Green, rambling dales and gorgeous stone buildings frame your vacation here. It could also be the food that has people coming back. The on-site restaurant serves heartwarming dishes like slow-roasted pork shoulder with spiced apple relish, mash and creamed winter cabbage, in a dining room that could double as a museum, dressed as it is in antique prints and lit with long-stem candles.

All through the property you’ll find an English flair that invokes the spirit of yesteryear. Each of the guestrooms is spacious, with modern bathrooms and Neal’s Yard bath products. Thick wooden ceiling beams and inglenook fireplaces punctuate the style of each room. Some are decked out in flagstone floors or painted in warm red tones that pick up the glow of a flickering fire.

Lovely garden & great Sunday lunch
Reviewed 1 week ago

We visited from Hertfordshire as part of May bank holiday break and this was a great find - amazing food including the sharing ploughman’s starter board. Service was great, we sat in the garden and enjoyed the sun.

Reasonable stay
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My wife and I stayed for one night on 30 April. Parking space is very restrictive. The gentleman who booked us in was not at all welcoming, it seemed that if he smiled it would hurt his face. The rest of the staff were very nice and helpful. The hotel is pleasant with the dining area set out in a bistro style. Our room was very clean with a comfortable bed.

The evening meal was poor as we both had rump steak which was tough and chewy.

Breakfast was OK with a buffet breakfast and cooked food brought to the table. No bread plates or butter knives were laid out and were only produced when I asked for them.

The Inn is set in the charming village of Hindon which is worth a visit.

Just Perfect!

Well what a hidden treasure the village of Hindon is!!!!
We stayed here only last night and couldn't fault anything.
With the weather in our favour for once we sat outside for drinks and food and watched the world go by. Such a peaceful setting with lovely terrace area and small green across the road also with plenty of seating. Inside is nicely decorated with a cosy pub feel.
Staff were super, helpful and pleasant and just added to the experience.
We will definitely be back in the future and thank you for a perfect stay :)

Terrific food
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I have driven past many times and finally got to stop and have dinner last night with my wife and 96 year old Dad. It was terrific food, served by very friendly and helpful staff.

There is a good choice plus some specials and the wine list is very good as well.

The Youngs bitter was top notch.

Absolute disgrace!

So unfortunate to have to leave such a bad review in such a lovely historic place but my fiance and I were so taken a back with our stay! Not only was dinner service extremely slow and then seriously not worth the wait but the rooms were appalling! Both our room and our friends room were an utter disgrace with bedding that hadn't even been cleaned from the last people and that was given away by the strong smell of elderly ladies perfume on the pillows, disgusting!! Old tissues still shoved behind mattress and under the bed! Cobwebs everywhere, limescale all over the shower head and bath, urine under the toilet seat, coffee pods still left in the machine and there was a very strong smell of dog urine in the room! We hardly slept and couldn't wait to leave and would have mentioned this to the cleaners but they were too busy smoking when we checked out. I'll assume that's where the allotted time goes rather than actually cleaning to a high standard as you would expect for the price of the rooms! We will not be staying in Hindon again!
