  The Lamb Inn
by IndianChef

This is a lovely authentic country pub. It's a low, part whitewashed, part Cotswold stone thatched building snuggled into this quiet country village. On a quiet winter's day you can imagine this pub as it was centuries ago. Duck and enter through a low door and you are not disappointed. It is a credit to The Head Chef Dilraj Sequeira and his brigade. No clutter, few pictures - it doesn't need it.

Immediately homely, an open fire, pretty wall lights, exposed Cotswold walls, striking polished hardwood floors, fresh flowers and the wonderful aroma of home cooking creates a feeling of excellence guaranteed to this most delightful of country pubs.

The staff are very efficient and friendly, with the ambience of a chic restaurant and the appearance of a country cottage, a place for a quiet chat across a candlelit table. With a excellent home cooked menu, wide-ranging and delicious Wines of the globe to complement your meal "which change regularly" instantly one can see whats attracting customers for miles. The regular lunch clubs combine fine dining, Good company in a traditional setting and represent great value.

Outside; The Lambs walled garden scattered with tables in gentle rural surrounds is a real sun-trap. The ideal place to spend a summer's afternoon. Being only a few miles from the M40 this delicious traditional country inn with a twist is easy to find and well worth the trip!

Favorite Dish: Chargrilled aubergine and halloumi cheese, chicken liver pate and chicken and bacon Caesar salad made for a tempting choice of starters. Both my wife and I, however, settled for the crab cakes served with a sweet chilli sauce. The menu is changed monthly but hopefully you will have the chance to sample such favourites as beef Fullers ale and smoked oyster pie, noisettes of lamb on a celeriac puree, or the delicious pan-fried pork with flageolet beans.

For my main course, I chose calf's liver and bacon - a dish I have not tried for many a year - served with wholegrain mustard mash and onion gravy.
If calf's liver were always as tender as this I certainly would never have left it so long. Delicious roasted sausages also come with mash and a delicious thick gravy. Succulent flambe breast of duck, served with red cabbage and new potatoes, was my wife's choice. How else to end such a meal but with apple crumble and custard?

My only regret as I left was not being able to manage a pint of the Adnams or Marston Pedigree, the two draught beers with a guest beer, changed regularly. The Lamb remains, after all, a great Oxfordshire pub.
