The Queen's Arms
This is horse-racing country and it’s not just the stables that house pure-breeds; this picturesque 18th-century inn is as authentic as they come. Lambourn’s horse-racing heritage is such that at any time of day owners, trainers and jockeys can be found discussing the day’s sport in the bar at the Queen’s Arms.
Candles, a log burning stove and paintings displayed on the rustic walls create an intimate atmosphere that is ideal for relaxing over a pint of cask ale, glass of wine or what ever your favourite tipple may be. Leading off is the inviting dark-panelled dining room, incorporating tried and tested oak tables and an endearing mixture of chairs. Internationally trained chef Gary Burns is at the helm of the widely acclaimed restaurant, where his ethos of creating delicious yet simple dishes in an inventive way is always met with great approval. The garden, terrace and vine-covered canopy outside allow guests to fully enjoy the tranquil village setting.
Above the pub, cosy and sumptuous bedrooms are decorated in a time-honoured style featuring Egyptian cotton sheets and comfy throws on the beds and interesting artwork on the walls. The bathrooms are particularly impressive with their large walk-in showers. For the more active guest, shooting and fishing can be arranged on request, making The Queens Arms an ideal base for that activity-filled weekend you’ve been promising yourself for a while.
