Lamb Lane, Buckland, FARINGDON, SN7 8QN
So often the word 'Cotswold' prefixes 'stone', but today it can also appear on the labels of the gin, vodka and lager available at the 17th-century Lamb, because they're all made in nearby Bourton-on-the-Water. The pub lies down a cul-de-sac in a group of similar-vintage cottages. Owners Richard and Shelley Terry are experienced chefs, although Shelley is usually front-of-house. Localness is paramount, as testified, for example, by the real ales, the game shot by a pub regular, and the many vegetables grown in the kitchen garden. Typical dishes include twice baked cheese soufflé with apple salad; locally-made venison sausages, creamed potato, caramelised onions and red wine jus; smoked haddock fillet, buttered spinach and sweetcorn cream; and pan-roasted duck breast, spiced sticky pear, cavolo nero and fondant potato. Among the desserts are ice peanut butter parfait with chocolate sauce; and orange and almond tart. Steak Night is every Wednesday.
