The Lamb Inn
I went to visit the Alfa Romeo day at Newby Hall and was advised to visit the Lamb Inn.
Beers on at the time were: Acorn Barnsley bitter, Black Sheep bitter, Daleside Blonde, and Brakspear Bitter
Great selection and variety of local beers (apart from the brakspear). Sampled the blonde and Barnsley bitter which were superb and I shall be back to taste the Brakspear.
The pub was decorated in a traditional style, none of that gastropub rubbish with all the tables set for dinner. The fire was roaring and there was a tremendous atmosphere. There was disabled access at the side if anyone required. The bar was pretty much centre stage you fell onto it as you walked into the door.
The place was clean, tidy including the toilets and there was a separate restaurant at the rear. There were signs up apologising for the inconvenience during redecoration but unless you scrutinised you couldn't tell.
The people were friendly and very chatty, that lovely Yorkshire welcome.
My only regret was that I had eaten as this huge fish came past me via the smiling waitress. The impression I got was the food served was traditional pub fayre, gammon, lamb shank, sausage and mash etc a few specials were on the blackboard, spring rolls, meatballs, strawberries and cream. The feedback I got regarding the food was this was 'the place' to come for steak and ale pie and Sunday lunch. The prices ranged from £4.50 for a main course to £14 for a steak. The portions I saw were tremendous value for money. Food is served 12-2 and 5-9pm and fantastically 12-8pm on a Sunday.
A minus point of this pub, no accommodation but there were cards on the bar advertising Cundall Lodge Farm, 5 minutes away.
Best was beer, food, price and atmosphere. Plus you could enjoy the pub atmosphere then go into the restaurant to dine and return to the pub.
