A beautifully stylish country pub just outside Witney dating back to the 18th Century run by Sebastian and Lana Snow, focusing on excellent locally sourced ingredients, a straightforward eclectic wine list delivered with a big welcome. The pub has a series of very cosy interconnecting rooms with a huge fireplace in the bar, low ceilings, beams and a suntrap of a beautiful beer garden with pizza ovens, bbq and outdoor bar.
Dear friends of THE LAMB,
I really hope everyone has managed to stay safe and well during this extremely testing period.
Life has changed for us all over the past few months and we, like you, have been doing our best to navigate the new ‘norm’.
We closed our doors in line with the Government directive back in March along with the rest of hospitality to keep our staff and guests safe, but we are itching to reopen this summer.
Until the Government confirms its position on dates and procedures for hospitality businesses, we are unable to confirm exactly what facilities we will be able to open, how many guests we’re able to accommodate at any one time and the exact date of re-opening.
The date currently being suggested is Saturday 4th July, and if that is the case and safety measures are workable for our pub then we will open our doors on that day
We really can't wait to welcome you all back and whilst observing our stringent safety measures, aim to create the same fun atmosphere and warm welcome that we have always tried to deliver.
Can I book a table?
Initially we will be operating with a reduced number of tables in our restaurant and garden until we have further guidance on physical anti-social distancing, so availability will be limited. Due to the constantly changing nature of this guidance, we will be continuously reviewing our procedures and will update you as soon as we know more.
To begin with we will operate a bookings ONLY policy in our restaurant for lunch and dinner. You will be able to book a table from 22nd June for the anticipated opening of the Lamb on Saturday 4th July. To Book please go to our bookings page on our website, phone or email us. Outdoor tables will need to be booked over the telephone please.
Until further notice we will open the pub from Wednesday-Sunday
Is the Bar and Garden open?
During the lock down we have added an Outdoor Bar and Kitchen and new seating area. The Outdoor bar will stock bottled drinks only and the outdoor kitchen will be serving Rotisserie Chicken, Pizza's and Grills amongst other options from our chefs. Once again outdoor table bookings for lunches or dinners will need to be made in advance ONLY. There will be a designated area in the garden for drinkers but ALL orders will be table service, meaning we will come to you. The existing indoor bar will stock our usual draught and keg beers and operate as normal albeit table service will be the new norm for the time being.
As always, seating will be on a first come first served basis. Physical distancing will be strictly observed so numbers may be limited.
What to expect?
The experience may look a little different in this new norm, but we hope it will feel the same; ultimately, it will still be our people caring for you and delivering the same attention to detail and personalised service that you are used to at THE LAMB . We want to reassure you that we’re putting measures in place to keep you and our teams safe so that you can confidently enjoy your time with us.
We’ll carry out these measures in a way that is true to who we are, so whilst the health and safety of our team and guests is our absolute top priority, we still want you to be able to relax in a space that feels familiar. We’re still shaping the finer details, and like all new things we may have some teething problems whilst the conditions of lock down guidance changes over the next few months.
Our menus will be published shortly online but please be aware we will not be taking cash payments for the foreseeable future
In the meantime, we are very excited to welcome you all back for what we hope will be a lovely warm extended summer!
