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.

My wife and I decided to try the lamb at hindon for a valentines evening meal. The food was exceptional and service swift polite and helpful. We will definitely go back for more, The only slight gripe is the parking, or lack of it unless I missed something.

This place was just we needed after a 12-hour flight. We stayed in July of 2018, so this review is a little late in coming.
The room was lovely, spacious and the decor was charming.
We had several meals here (breakfast, lunch & dinner)all of which were great
The staff made you feel as is you were family. In particular Becky Harris and Arron Harey who were just terrific and went out of the way to make you feel welcome.
It really is a small, quiet village which was perfect for us as a base to explore Wiltshire & Somerset.
Would definitely stay again!

B&B and Dinner
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I was booked into the Lamb Inn for 2 nights whilst on a training course for work. The cost was £79 for a double room which included breakfast.
I was really impressed with the room itself (room 3). It was a good size with a comfy double bed. You are provided with a kettle and coffee machine, with a selection of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. You also get a large bottle of water and biscuits. They provide a great selection of toiletries including a shaving kit, hygiene kit and shower cap. The shower was warm with a good flow and the towels were fluffy. There is aircon in the room which worked really well. The TV is a great size and in a great position and includes a Sky package. I honestly can't fault the room.
I've not given this place a 5 as I thought the food options both for dinner and breakfast could have been a little better.
There are a number of cooked breakfast options, including a full english, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and porridge and a help yourself table which had pastries, cereals and cold meats.
Being a vegetarian, it would have been good to see a veggie cooked breakfast. I did have the porridge one morning, which said it came with fruit. That fruit was some semi-cooked apple pieces and the porridge itself was a bit gloopy. The only yoghurts on offer were Muller Lights which are not vegetarian. The croissants and pain au chocolat were very good.
I ate in the pub on one evening. Again I found the vegetarian options very limiting. I had the only vegetarian main meal on offer at a price of £14. It was tasty but turned out to be pretty much just potato cooked in 3 different ways. For pudding I had a two cheese board all accompanied by 2 large glasses of wine, which came to a total of £37.
The pub car parking is limited but there is lots of free parking within the village.
All in all, I'd certainly stay here again but just think the veggie food options need to be reviewed.

Just a great place to stay

The staff are excellent and very helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. There is a large dinning area, good menu and food. The bar well stocked with two log fires for extra ambience.
The room was spacious with good facilities, including A/C. Decor boutique and well presented.

A great pub

Used The Lamb a fair while ago, it was OK but noy great. New management took over recently and it is now a great place to eat. The food was brilliant, lamb shank, superbly cooked. Will be coming back more regularly now.
