please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Lamb is in my opinion one of the best 3 pubs in Devizes. I'm undecided which one is the best. This place scores highly due to its wonderful, quirky interior. The single bar has plenty of wood panelling and furniture with a unique feature being a small peephole enabling punters to check out what is happening in the corridor outside. On this occasion, there seemed to be a minor disturbance involving somebody shouting the odds! The corridor itself through which you enter, leads to the toilets and an enclosed courtyard that appeared quite popular. Where the pub disappoints is that it is yet another Wadworth establishment with only their ales served - 6X, IPA, Swordfish & Misplaced Optimism. I opted for a cranberry juice as driving. £2.60! This would be the stand out pub in Devizes if it wasn't for the poor ale selection and the exorbitant prices. Customers are in the most part friendly. But the barmaid seemed a bit standoffish.

A gem of a pub - virtually unspoilt with original fittings and several little drinking areas. Outside seating at the rear and a pool room. We enjoyed Wadworth's IPAnema "world cup" beer which was light and refreshing and not too strong. Very much a locals pub although I suspect that many visitors will pop in to enjoy the interioir of this fine old pub.

Great place, all a pub should be. Original old interior, friendly staff, full of regulars who are 'characters', great beers all kept well, and a good jukebox too. Full marks.

Lovely place. Three ales on, friendly staff and pleasant clientele. Very much enjoyed the visit here. Worth dropping in if you're visiting the town.

Really liked this pub, the usual beer range for Devizes, I had a Red White and Brew. Great little garden out the back, good atmosphere too.

Called in after the wadworths brewery tour - as the tour guide said it was the best in the area. It certainly had a nice atmosphere (enhanced by the fact the Henry's IPA was only 1.99 a pint). Also has an eclectic mix of music on the jukebox and an interesting Rifle range actually inside the pub. Will call again.

Called in here during a recent visit to Devizes. Friendly people, typical old man's pub. I was a bit surprised that my orange juice wasn't out of a fridge nor with any ice but, apart from that, a nice enough place with some interesting side rooms, a pool table and a cribbage team.

This pub stinks of dog! It's dirty with unclean glasses. The outside garden is a real suntrap it's just a shame the owners can't spend a couple of hundred pounds on new tables and take some pride in the place.

Old pub well restored Wadworth beers - well worth a visit.
