This is a typical Devon pub, heavy beams, quirky shapes and inglenook fireplaces, etc. We were late arriving, but nobody was concerned and welcomed us. Excellent staff, young but very polite, well-spoken and a pleasure to talk with. No "fank you", or "hi guys", which itself is a bonus, but a really warm attitude. The food is really, really good....

Parking wasn't easy, but apart from that we enjoyed dinner at The Lamb. A relaxed atmosphere in an attractive historic building. Busy without being noisy. Pleasant and efficient service. Excellent food at good prices. We like the local cider.

We spent one night staying at the Lamb Inn, our expectations were high having read it had won many awards. Unfortunately it didn't live up to those expectations. The room was a little shabby and the furniture looked like it had been bought at a jumble sale. However the pub itself was lovely with a vibrant atmosphere in the evening.... More

A return visit after mixed experiences was rewarded with some beautiful food that was well presented and tasted great. The Lamb is a quintessentially English country pub, with soft lighting, sofas, real fires and a thriving social atmosphere. The only downside is that parking in the congested village can be a challenge. We will be back!

We popped in for lunch when the pub was very busy, but still had good service. Simple food but very nicely done and inexpensive, friendly landlord and staff, tasty local ciders and beer, delightful ambiance.

Very welcoming, we stayed in "the flat" for 2 nights (access a bit difficult but lovely inside). We ate in on the first night lovely food, good service. Breakfasts were individually cooked, also very good. Sandord is a small village, parking is an issue but you can go to the village hall car park.
