If you’re in or around Stansted and looking for traditional food and drink a cut above the airport chains, this country-styled pub is a great place to start. Catering for locals and visitors in search of good beer and fresh, homemade food, The Lion & Lamb offers a bar and restaurant menu set to please those in search of steaks, hearty servings and indulgent desserts. We started with an expansive seafood sharing platter before moving on to our mains. The Salt Marsh lamb and Dedham Vale 8oz ﬁllet steak were both generous and ﬂavoursome. Desserts continued this theme with apple and berry crumble paired with custard, and a lighter lemon and lime panna cotta, topped with apricot and mint glaze. Paired with affordable wine by the glass and a great beer selection, The Lion & Lamb, with its hearty portions and warm welcome, is as English as it gets.
