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.

A must place to go for lunch
virginiag977

OMG. What an amazing pub and a hidden gem. We have driven past it so often on our way to Cornwall but never been there at the right time to stop for lunch. Having looked at the menu we decided to plan our journey so that we could sample their amazing menu. I had my heart set on the Game Sharing Platter. It didn’t disappoint. It was mouth-wateringly scrumpy. The wild boar scotch egg was the best I’ve ever had, the pigeon breast melted in my mouth and the partridge, pork and fig sausages were to die for. The staff were so lovely, friendly and helpful. The courtyard garden is charming and the log fire so welcoming. Can’t wait to go again.

Birthday lunch

Booked for a birthday Sunday lunch, we had hoped for a wonderful meal. However, it was very disappointing. Soup, leek and potato was exceptionally grim and a friend had liver and onions which could have been used to fix shoes. We weren't told the chef was on no doubt a well deserved day off. Great shame.

overnight stay

For £112 for the room I expected a little more luxury. Bathroom was nice but aircon very noisy. We couldn't open the window and when I mentioned this to the manager, he asked why we wanted the window open! Fresh air please, esp with the noisy aircon!
