Description

The Lamb Tavern is a grand old bar and dining room stretching out across three impressive floors on the cobbled streets of Leadenhall Market. It’s been part of the tapestry of the city of London since 1780 and is still a thriving spot today, with workers recharging their batteries after a difficult day at the office and the venue becoming available for exclusive hire at the weekends.

Step inside from this famous marketplace and you’ll be greeted by the Main Bar, a relaxed spot where you can pick between wines, spirits and a signature list of Young’s cask ales. Look out for the pub’s roaming #ThirstAiders, on call to order your drinks while cutting out queuing time at the bar. There’s also a Mezzanine suitable for drinks parties and buffets for up to 35, and a stunning Dining Room where guests can enjoy classic pub plates made up of fresh, seasonal ingredients with stunning views of the market.

Very much a popular and lively pub during the week, The Lamb Tavern can be hired out at weekends and is a truly beautiful space ideal for weddings, birthdays, Christenings and retirement parties alike.

Although a very quiet night as it was very, very hot evening, the restaurant was cool, the welcome warm and food great as always. visited Lamb Tavern on 21 Jun 2017

I have been to eat here on lots of occasions and it has generally been very good. Unfortunately when taking some important clients on Friday it was a very bad experience. The two young members of staff were so disinterested in being there. It to ages to get a drink order. Even longer to order. One of our guests asked when ordering if her main course would get here in time as she had a meeting and the waiter just said 'no'. They were not busy with many empty tables. When taking our order they then advised that they did not have Sea Bass. (This was the only non meat dish apart from regular fish & chips. This was a shame as 4 out the eight wanted the sea bass. The food that came out was generally ok but not much finesse and the chips were all luke warm. The main issue was that after dropping the main courses at the table the staff never returned. We had the plates sitting there until 3pm. when they did finally come back they dropped the bill on the table and still did not clear it. No desert or coffee offered... I did not offer any gratuity and the two young staff refused to look at me and turned their backs as my table departed. I hope their manager reads this as it is really bad form. As i said we frequent the Lamb for drinks and business lunches (Including our work Xmas lunch) and don't expect to be treated so badly. I guess will will try somewhere new and advised my 325 London staff to avoid. David visited Lamb Tavern on 16 Jun 2017

Hi David, Thank you for taking the time and expressing your saddening, yet honest opinion. Following our conversation on the phone earlier today, I would like to once again offer our sincerest apologies and invite you back for a meal for you and a friend, on us. Your experience is not how we operate and not what we believe in, whatsoever, all I can do on behalf of my team and myself is apologise, learn and make sure it does not happen again. Yours sincerely, Dan S Assistant Manager

Easy to book a section on the mezzanine bar from your website. We got a nice corner. All the staff and bartenders were friendly. Liked everything about the service and selection of drinks. Menu a bit restrictive for vegetarians The 3rd order of lite bites got delayed and was served cold probably waiting at the kitchen before you remembered who the order was for.. overall excellent place .. highly recommend it ..great ambience in thr Leadenhall market visited Lamb Tavern on 17 May 2017

There were only 2 tables of which we were 1. We had to go to the bar and ask them to come take our order. We had to go to the bar as ask for the bill. And we had to go to the bar to pay for the bill. It's not like they were flat out busy, each time they were on their mobile phones. Top marks for the food, compliments to the chef. visited Lamb Tavern on 27 Feb 2017

Reply from Lamb Tavern

Hi, thank you for your feedback. I will hold a staff meeting to remind them of our golden rules and this is against company policy. It is with your feedback that we can continue to grow our service so it is duly noted. I will also pass on the compliments to our kitchen team. Hope to see you again next time you are in the city

This was a special night when I retired after 43 years with the same organisation. I chose The Lamb because it was the bar I went to in 1974 immediately after being appointed to my job. The atmosphere in the bar was exactly what I was looking for, and the service from the staff was excellent. Thank you for helping me celebrate my retirement. visited Lamb Tavern on 19 Jan 2017

We (13) had a very enjoyable Christmas lunch which was very good value for a restaurant in the City of London. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars was that there was a long wait between the main and dessert which they did apologise for but it did mean someone had to miss dessert. visited Lamb Tavern on 14 Dec 2016

Reseated from Mezzanine to dining room overlooking market…great seats. Very good food served altogether and promptly. Friendly staff and great atmosphere.

Missed the table place names and orders which I had been asked to supply details for but a great lunch, thank you! visited Lamb Tavern on 08 Dec 2016

The staff were exceptional considering how mega busy they were Food was "ok"....pre-ordered two dishes with no pork and one with the egg well done - had to send them back Nowhere to hang our coats and it was far too cramped - I think less tables would be best We had a great afternoon....this was a lot down to the staff visited Lamb Tavern on 06 Dec 2016

We were a table of 12 and we had a great time. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They could have done with more help in busy times though as we had to wait a lot to order and reorder water and drinks. The tables were decorated beautifully with pretty little name places and the menu. The food was very enjoyable but a few commented on a lack of veg with the mains, and that the only cheese on the cheeseboard option was blue. Other than that I would highly recommend it and it was good value for the quality and service provided. visited Lamb Tavern on 05 Dec 2016

The staff were VERY accommodating and made for a lovely experience; when the lamb steaks arrived, we found them inedible, but the staff were VERY willing to replace them with some outstanding lamb shanks. The sea bass was a bit overcooked but edible. and the rest found their entrees to be quite good. It was an unusual night in that it was the Christmas Light Switch On, so perhaps the slower dining traffic caused these problems. Would definitely return, and again, many thanks to the staff for a very pleasant dining experience. Debra visited Lamb Tavern on 18 Nov 2016

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave feedback. I have discussed your experience at length with the kitchen team & our meat supplier to ensure this does not happen again.

first visit to Lamb Tavern with some friends from out of town. Although very busy for our booked 2.15 lunch slot, staff were very attentive. One of our party had an allergy to garlic. The restaurant did have a list of menu items that contain common allergies but garlic is seemingly an unusual one. It was difficult to find a main that didn't include garlic on a standard British menu - even the pork and lamb chops seemingly pre-marinated in garlic! However the very helpful staff did their best to ensure there was a couple of choices available. The food was substantial and very good. Would recommend a visit but not perhaps to those with a garlic allergy! visited Lamb Tavern on 27 Oct 2016

I really like this pub, it is set in the stunning leadenhall market and is a beautiful setting for an after work drink. It is normally heaving with city drinkers but its a great pub, with young's ales on tap, friendly service and beautiful building.
