“It’s Been Emotional…”

It is with very heavy hearts that Harriet and I announce that we are officialy leaving The Lamb, Crawley.

We completetd the sale last week and would like to wish the new tenants the very best and hope that everyone will support the pub and continue with its success.

There is little to say at this point but we will remain open and eager, as always, untill the 8th November 2014.

Keep an eye out on our Twitter feed (@lambcrawley) for lots of things that are going on between now and then. Dave and I will continue to push our little kitchen to the limits with our food and Paul will be here to welcome you with a little tipple of fine English wine or local ale. So why not come and join us? Those of you that we know, it’ll be good to say our goodbyes and those of you we have not met yet, come say hi and see why ‘our little pub’ has become a ‘go to’ destination pub in the Cotswolds.

We would like to take this time to firstly thank every guest and local who has continued to support us all on this journey and got behind the pub.

We can not thank all the amazing staff we have had over the years enough; Jessie, Amber, Owen ’1 foot’, Marli(tron), Jo Jo, Emma, Emily, Chris, ‘Super’ Brian, ‘Our Kids’ – Brodie and Emily, Kat and finally Paul for joining us at such a difficult time and being the epitome of professional. You guys have all been simply brilliant, its been a tough one for you all but we appreciated every day you were here with us!

Finally the biggest of biggest thanks to the O.G Lamb Family; Dave and Fraser. What can I say? We wouldn’t be past day one without you both. Harry and I are forever indebted to you both for your sacrficie and selfeless attitude in building our little pub in the country. I only hope you know how much we love you. Big love, thank you and the beers are on us.

To all our families and friends, thank you. For you constant support, encouragement and help we can not say thank you enough but we will endevour to show you why having faith in the ‘youngers’ is worth it.

To Mora Mousse, we love you, miss you and thank you.

So all that is left to say is we truely hope to see you all over the next few weeks for the final “hurrahh”. Bookings being taken via telephone and email, check out our contact page for full details.

Ant, Harriet and Artie

“tapas” tuesday

So it’s the start of the week and Friday seems a little far away….but don’t let that stop you joining friends and family for our “tapas” tuesday.

We will be serving a range of dishes (all designed to graze on and all with our usual creative touch) from 6p.m.

Expect classic Spanish dishes such as patatas bravas using Cheshire potatoes, tarditional Italian arancini with the real English flavour of fresh peas and of course something a little quirkier like old spot pig’s head lollipops.

We will be running this every Tuesday and will hopefully see you all here for food, beer and the forgotten art of conversation…speaking of which, check out our Twitter feed for more info and pics… @lambcrawley

*please note that this is the only menu we will be serving on Tuesdays

Guest notice – We no longer run this night. Please be aware that our bar/dining menu will be available instead.

Wonderful time of year for food, which is more than can be said for the weather!

England has not let us down with its wonderful bounty of fresh produce but it has sadly let us down on half term weather. We have a few new dishes that really show off what is coming in fresh from the fields and farms locally at the moment. We thought we would share a few with you to see if we can cheer up this rather wet week.

gloucestershire heirloom tomatoes £6½
mozzarella mousse, balsamic jelly, toasted seeds, herbs and flowers

gazpacho of english peas and mint £5½
cold pressed rapeseed oil, crème fraiche, pea tendrils

risotto primavera £10 / £5
peas, asparagus, fresh herbs and leaves, crème fraiche

supreme of free range chicken £15
english peas, wye valley asparagus, wild asparagus, evesham spinach, jersey royals, truffled jus

fillet of old spot pork £16
purple carrot hache, baby carrots, poached in earl gray, white carrot and hazelnut ‘salsa’, carrot puree, black pudding croquette, young coriander, split jus

We look forward to seeing you and your umbrellas soon!

‘Not So Secret’ Supper Club

We are currently preparing for the next ‘not so secret’ supper club on the 7th June. Our imaginations are going into over drive as we come up with 15 amazing dishes to excite and intrigue the senses. Sadly, this supper club is fully booked but there are still 6 places left for the supper club on July 19th. If you would like to see previous menus from supper clubs to get an idea of what we offer or to book a place then please call or email us.

Spring at The Lamb

Easter Sunday

Sunday the 20th April 2014 is not only Easter but our first birthday at The Lamb. So make it special for us and you by joining us for…

Easter Day lunch, where we will be offering a set menu of all things seasonal. Children will not only have a special menu but also have a chance to win a chocolate egg from the Easter bunny by answering riddles on their table.

Easter Day Evening, we will be celebrating all things lamb. A one off menu will take all the best bits from a seasonal favourate in the form of a tasting menu (vegetarian option will be available), priced at £40 per person and will include a glass of prosecco.

Easter Sunday (lunch and dinner) will be available by bookings only, and bare in mind we get full very quickly! So call or email us via our contact page.

New Menu

The produce that we serve at the Lamb is some of the best local produce around. We have therefore decided to show case it in all its glory. Here are a few examples:

Our new menu has 6 choices of local long horn steak. Ranging from steaks you can eat alone or share… or you can just pretend you want to share!

We are now offering a different fish dish nearly every day, as we look at what has been caught, pick the best and deliver it to you with wonderful seasonal accompaniments.

We hope you enjoy the changes but please do feel free to provide us with any comments you may have!

Weekend Coffee Shop

We are going all continental at the weekend…ooh la la!

We will be opening our doors from 10.30 on both Saturdays and Sundays from May 3rd and offering our spectacular wood roasted coffee and selection of pastries until midday. Why not break up the walk or just have a lazy morning with the papers at The Lamb?

Please note that this is replacing our current brunch menu

Valentines Day 2014

Daer all,

We are very happy and somewhat sad to announce that we are now fully booked for the evening of Friday 14th February.

Thank you for all the support and we look forward to seeing you all then.
