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.

Birthday treat!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Excellent! As part of a birthday treat/surprise I was taken here by my partner. Apparently it is part of the Young's group.But it does not have that generic, homogenized feeling that so many pubs in a chain suffer from. The beer is excellent and the food first class. I would recommend anything that has a 'game' theme to it at The Lamb. I wonder if that has anything to do with the locality? The rooms are well appointed and the beds very comfortable. First class cooked breakfast this morning. Real fires last night made it all very cosy!

Driving to Hindon to find The Lamb after a full day of touristing felt like I was getting close to the rabbits hole that Alice fell down. The town is tiny, parking is just off an "S" turn with blind approaches from two sides ... be careful. Reception was friendly, but hauling bags up narrow stairs was a chore but not too big a deal (reminder ... pack lighter!) My wife and I went for a lovely little walk around the town then settled in the pub inside The Lamb to plan the next days travel. While pouring over our maps and having an ale poured for us we were asked if we wanted to make dinner reservations. I took a clue from a hand chalked sign saying people needed to book their Christmas dinner soon ... and we were in late September! So we said sure! The meal that evening was the best we had on our three week drive around the UK! I'm not a "foodie" so I'm not describing everything, but I want you to know that four of us are still talking about the meal.

The room was small, the bathroom adequate and we had to settle for two twin beds pushed together. The room was a little stuffy but to get the window open my wife had to wedge a book in the opening. We found the room attractive and we slept well ... maybe from eating too much. The actively farmed countryside was lovely and I hope to come back.

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.
