Update March 10th 2018 - Pub will close near end of March for refit and new name - The Park View.
Named the Lamb because the innkeeper was a shepherd!

This picture on the left shows a view down what is now Durrington Lane looking southwards. The building behind the horse and cart is the Lamb pub.

The flint cottages on the left were demolished but the wall line remains the same. The pub was later rebuilt slightly back from the position shown here

A little ironic perhaps but the cottages are now being replaced with . . . flint faced cottages.

The Lamb closed for a short period in March 2011 for a much needed refit at a cost of around 250,000. The pub is very much a locals pub.

The large garden, well furnished and with children's play area is very popular in the summer months. A venue for local bands though the stage area is a little on the small side.
