The Lamb Inn: “Located in the heart of Axbridge, The Lamb is a traditional coaching inn dating back to 1480. Inside it’s a cosy affair, with traditional beams, fireplaces and original features, and a menu offering tasty pub classics and seasonal dishes. At the bar, get stuck into local Butcombe beers, guest ales and an excellent wine list.”
