For what we paid (Voucher deal) it was fine. Room pleasant, TV on wall small. On arrival evident toilet not clean but this was quickly resolved when mentioned. After first night I straightened bed expecting bed to be made by staff, but was not, bottom sheet had come away from mattress and was the same when I returned to room....

Booked through a discount site and so glad we made this choice! A beautiful place to stay literally surrounded by absolutely beautiful countryside. A very warm friendly welcome and instantly shown to out lovely room (No 7). I am a disabled lady so it was so good to have a walk in shower instead of the usual bathroom struggles! Lots...

We booked two nights through a Groupon deal and had a lovely relaxing stay. The hotel is charming, the staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. We ate dinner in the bar both nights and enjoyed lovely food and good service. The atmosphere was friendly with other guests chatting to us as we ate. Breakfast...

Nice room with lovely view, bath with shower over and large soft towels! Good choice of food which was delicious, both at breakfast and on an evening. Very attentive and friendly staff and dogs were made very welcome. We had a very relaxing stay and would thoroughly recommend The Fat Lamb.

Terrible! We Booked online and were really looking forward to our stay. Upon arrival we were basically ignored whilst waiting to check in.... Anyway I let it slide as I just assumed they were busy. We were directed to our room eventually, which as soon the door was opened was obviously damp! It stank and was freezing. We made a...

They say you should never look back ---- Stayed here almost exactly a year ago, and enjoyed our stay so came back this month. Had a different room this time Room 6, at the front. Same lovely view as Room 3, but king sized bed and a bigger room. No bathroom window though, so the bathroom did have a slight...

Stayed for one night in July, the setting of the Inn is absolutely beautiful. Room lovely, staff top drawer and food is gorgeous. So quiet on an evening with little or no passing traffic. Could not recommend it highly enough, will definitely visit again. Breakfast lovely too.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Fat Lamb. Comfortable room if a little small but we do have a very large dog. Unfortunately, weather was rather inclement so spoilt any countryside walks but didn't spoil our little break. Food was very good & staff were efficient & helpful. Would return for another visit.

Just spent 2 fabulous nights at the Fat Lamb on an Amazon deal. Our room 10 was spacious and comfy with great views. The food was fantastic and so much choice for me as I am a coeliac. They even made me a special dessert....lovely! All the staff were friendly and helpful and could not do enough for you. Can...

My wife and I have just stayed on a amazon deal, and we cannot praise the staff highly enough, ( Gina,Dawn,Victoria and Angela) nothing was too much trouble for them to do for us. We stayed Friday & Saturday in Room 6 which as the most beautiful views. We found the food very good. Hopefully we will stay there again...
