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 butternut squash and sage arancini with rocket and parmesan salas; gin-cured salmon with fennel and lemon salad; whole oven-roasted West Country Partridge, served carved with rosti potato, leek gratin with a pancetta and rosemary crumble; and pan-roasted fillet of ling, roasted Jerusalem artichokes with wild mushrooms and truffle oil. Among the desserts are chocolate and peanut butter iced parfait with chocolate sauce; and poached pineapple Eton mess. Steak Night is every Wednesday.
