Graham Coombs left this review about Lamb Inn

A classic old Georgian building in its own courtyard, surrounded by the backs of retail premises, which could be a veritable oasis. However the courtyard is wedged full of tables and the interior has been far too modernised, not unpleasantly but totally lacking in any character. Separate areas to either side of the central bar hold sports TVs, so not too intrusive, while an upstairs area was in use for a private function so I don't know what goes on up there. The ales were ok but had some room for improvement, being Nethergate Suffolk County, Grain Best, Ghost Ship and Doom Bar. Adequate, but there are better pubs close by.

It's hard to know how much of this pub is actually old, as WhatPub describes it as "a large modern pub on an ancient site". It can be accessed from either Haymarket or Orford Place, but it would be quite easy to walk past without spotting it. The courtyard before the pub is filled with tables, some of them covered, which suggests that quite a few people do in fact find their way here even in bad weather. At the time of my visit it was fairly quiet, as it was not yet midday and I was just here for a swift half before catching my train. There were five hand pumps (see photo) with four Norfolk breweries represented, of which I went for Lacons Affinity. This beer was in very good condition, and I would certainly recommend this pub as being within reasonable walking distance of the station if, like me, in need of a swift half, or even for a longer session.

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

This historic inn is now known as the Lamb again (after spells as the Rat & Parrot and Henry’s Cafe Bar), and has been refurbished inside in a semi-modern style. Large covered patio seating area in the front courtyard. Although reincarnated as a "traditional pub & dining" venue, it seems more popular with the younger age range (on a Saturday night, at least). Two of three handpumps in operation, offering Adnams Ghost Ship and Wychwood Jester Jack (£3.80).
