Originally an inn known as The Holy Lamb as early as the 12th Century, and built using bricks from a local church, was first recorded as trading from 1574.
There are many local ghost stories surrounding The Lamb, where in 1787, the “Story Telling Landlord”, John Aggis, was brutally murdered by his brother-in-law in the cellar (but never fear, John is a friendly ghost who loves his guests and has a true passion for entertaining children with his tall tales of fairies and goblins). Also there is the ghost of the Shady Motor Cyclist who in 1979 was found in the courtyard and allegedly died under suspicious circumstances. The Lamb has also seen its share of natural disasters with a flood in 1917 and a devastating fire in 1939.
The inn has undergone several changes over recent decades having been known as The Lamb Inn, Rat and Parrot in 1996 and Henry’s Café Bar in 2002. It was renamed The Lamb Inn in 2011.
