The Lamb is a fairly traditional pub with several different areas and rooms so that itís much bigger than it looks from the quaint little exterior in Barley Mow Passage. In fact it straddles the whole space through to Chiswick High Road, where thereís a large patio popular with the after work crowd. It feels a bit foody but most people inside were just drinking and watching the tennis from Wimbledon on a roll down screen over the door. Itís no longer a brewpub but has twelve handpumps with a mix of large and small breweries represented plus a few keg taps and bottles. The ďbeer of the weekĒ was Oskar Blues Daleís Pale Ale when I visited. (Visited 8 July 2015).

A new brewpub for me, but we were met with apologies, just 3 of their own beers on, and with new owners, they had no idea about the future.One good beer, one OK, one I didnít finish. Very pretentious food menu - Scotched quailís eggs, anyone?

Nicely refurbished brewpub located a short walk from Turnham Green station. Large beer garden out front, cavernous interior. The vibe was a little corporate, but welcoming enough. The only reason to stop in is to check out the house beers. There were 6 available on my visit across a range of styles (pils, brown ale, APA etc). Sadly none were really up to scratch, and I didnít bother to finish any of my samples. You can buy a flight of the six house brews for something like five quid. The staff didnít make this known to me, nor did I see this printed on any of the menus. The guest beers are all fairly pedestrian, though Cave Creek Chili Beer was prominently displayed for some reason. Prices for the house beers were fair. Overall, Iíd only recommend a visit for people who are on a deep dive of the London beer scene. The house beers arenít compelling, the pubís located off the beaten track.

A decent spot overall. Itís certainly an attractive venue. Thereís a large patio out front, and inside itís a nicely furnished, fairly fancy pub. The Lamb beers, though, in terms of quality tend to fall somewhere in a range between average and mediocre; I tried five of their beers on my first visit. It seems like they have a few regular beers and a few rotators. Prices are fair and the staff quite friendly. The pub also has a number of guest breweries on cask, keg and in bottle. This may not be a place I would recommend to a visitor to London who is time-constrained (there are too many great places to visit), but for the grizzled London drinker The Lamb is a nice way to mix up your drinking routine.

Visited as the starting venue on my stag! Good wide range of beers including house beer, large classic English pub vibe, decent food (serious half chicken!) A good pub to visit in the area.

visited on 20/09/12 the 2nd week after opening (was previously called the Barley Mow). They are owned by the same people as the Botanist on Kew Green. 12 cask and 18 keg lines in place at the bar although on this visit around half of each were being utilised. Only 3 house beers available, a cask bitter and 2 keg offerings in the form of an American pale (in taste not appearance!) and a honey pilsner (which was unbearably sweet). Other cask offerings from Hook Norton, Botanist, Sambrooks and Black Sheep. Some commercial keg stuff. Decent enough bottle list including the likes of Bear Republic, Meantime, Dark Star, Fordhams and many more (info added on many, but not all of these). Nicely decorated place, single room, wooden floors, long bar, immaculate toilets, brewing coppers in the pub at the end by the beer garden which looked pleasant. Food looked decent, gastropub type stuff. Shared some bread and chips, but havenít rated based on this. Chatting to the manager they plan to have 8 house beers available on a regular basis, but this is unlikely until mid October. Flight of 9 house beers for £10 is available for anyone after quick rates (I asked what the 9th beer was ... Sam Adams something or other !!!). Again, the sampler wonít be available until mid October. This place looks promising, taking the unbalanced honey pilsner out of the equation. I will return in 4 to 6 weeks when the full range of house beers is up and running and fully expect to upgrade my ratings.
