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.

Mixed view on this hotel

The room was adequate in size but only had a four foot six bed. Surrounding this was a five foot ankle catching wooden base. A coffee machine and many teas and biscuits were also provided. Good shower and bath but the bathroom blind was broken. Dinner was very good. Venison casserole which contained chocolate came with mash and leeks. I chose two starters for my meal and they were superb! Pigeon breast was one and a really crusty scotch egg made with venison, chocolate and stout(could not detect the last two ) was delicious, coming with slices of apple. Deserts were banana cake with salted caramel ice cream and black treacle toffee sauce and a citrus tart with cinnamon. Breakfast provided a good variety of fresh fruit and the opportunity to avoid the ubiquitous fried with eggs dominating. So the dining was great but the room a little disappointing. We had to shut the window at night to try to keep out traffic noise, so it was very warm.

Sunday lunch
Reviewed 1 week ago

Lovely, stunning Sunday roast with family/friends. Opted for mains and pudding.
Good atmosphere. Attentive staff and service.
The roast itself was excellent. Our son wanted more gravy, asked, and it arrived!
We all rated the Sunday main course to a very high standard. Fabulous flavour and a brilliant Yorkshire pudding!
Only let down was the desert - we chose the banana cake with sauce. It was pretty dry with no sauce at all. In hindsight should’ve gone for the traditional crumble with custard, so not necessarily the pubs fault but ours!
Overall for the whole meal etc 9 out of 10. Well done guys! Can’t wait to return. Thank you very much for a lovely meal.

Lovely cosy spot

We stayed for one night here, while a bit pricey, the place is lovely and cosy. There is a lovely fire burning downstairs in the pub which creates a really nice atmosphere. The rooms were very clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was good.
