Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Lamb

Substantial Old English Inn (a Greene King brand), with a semi-traditional interior with various seating areas. I found IPA, Old Speckled Hen and Abbot from the three handpumps. Two handpumps, offering Old Speckled Hen and IPA (£2.90). Eight years after my previous visit, little has changed and still a little bit soul-less.

Steve C left this review about The Lamb Hotel

The Lamb is a Greene King establishment that has been given a modern refurbishment, but still sits in the GK Old English Inns portfolio. The interior is broken up by a central stairwell that leads up to ‘37 well-appointed bedrooms’. Around the stairwell are various seating areas and the décor is more gastro pub than hotel bar. To the left is a dining area and the bar is found on the rear wall. I noted the presence of standard and premium draught products and I counted three hand pumps. One of these was unused leaving Greene King’s IPA and Old Speckled Hen as the ale options.

This pub is food led, which is given away by their website which lists several menus that cater for nippers through to the aged. Mains are priced around £9 and I thought that the burger I order was tasty, but it could have been a little bigger. My visit being on a Sunday evening, I was a little gutted that I didn’t notice that the roasts were buy one get one free after 17:00… DOH!!! I recorded that the Lamb opens for breakfast at 7am during the week and at 8am at the weekend.

Live sport is not shown here, but I did spot a plasma screen that was showing muted rolling BBC News. There was some low background music playing and live music is advertised for every Friday evening.

I found the service to be polite, but because of the lack of character and decent ale I would visit elsewhere if in the area just looking for a beer.

Alan Winfield left this review about The Lamb Hotel

The Lamb is a large old pub that is also an hotel and as usuall with these sort of pubs it does'nt have any real ales on the bar.
There were a couple of rooms that i noticed and we went in a fairly comfortable room and the only bitter available was John Smiths smooth crap so we had a Guinness.
These sort of pubs are not to my liking.
