About The Lambley Village Kitchen

Looking for something classy, but really you want something comforting? Don’t worry, the Lambley Village Kitchen has you sorted. Found on the Main Road of lovely Lambley, just outside Nottingham, the Lambley Village Kitchen provides deeply satisfying dishes that dangle between pub classics and contemporary creations. Choose some cumberland sausages and mashed potatoes, a vintage steak pie, or the famous ale-battered fish and chips with mushy peas, and you may be surprised at the delicious dish you receive, closer resembling something from a degustation dinner than a pub menu. In particular, the Lambley Village Kitchen is a local favourite for Sunday roast, so you might need to book in advance to ensure you get to enjoy their legendary leg of lamb, dry-aged topside of beef and homemade Yorkshire pudding, of course with a wide selection of hearty ales to get you in shape for the week ahead.

Very good service, lovely location and tasty meals. I found that the specials however, were quite expensive, but still well cooked and quick service provided.

We were looking for a location to celebrate Mothers day. The atmosphere was great, food outstanding and service attentive. We would recomend without hesitation Village Kitchen and will be returning soon.

Lovely atmosphere, staff friendly, food delicious. A busy Sunday lunchtime but didn't feel pressured to vacate our table once we had finished. Hope to go again soon.

Wow this place is awesome, I took my wife and my nan on Sunday for a treat and it sure was a delightful dining experience. We all enjoyed our meals and desserts too, atmosphere was very nice and relaxed, the staff were very tentative and they listened to my request for comfy seating for my disabled nan. The overall bill was a pleasant surprise too at only £79 for mains desserts a bottle of wine and floaty coffees, we will most definitely be back with my parents next time. The setting is lovely too so peaceful and relaxing. I would recommend you pre book as it does get busy and it is a relatively small venue 👍👍

The food was excellent, the service was brilliant, unfortunately there was a group of adults with several children who made a lot of noise making it impossible to carry on a conversation. Once they had eaten the staff asked them to move because the table was reserved for a party. This they did with good grace but it rained so they came back in, the mothers were louder than the children. It would be nice if people could have a good time without causing inconvenience to other diners. The staff were very apologetic

A charming welcome from the staff on duty, very good food - the sea bream was particularly good - and delightful service, all at a reasonable price. We never felt rushed to vacate the table and the only small niggle was that soup + bread & butter doesn't need to be served on large wooden platters which are heavy and too big to sit comfortably on the table when there are 4 people. That apart, we had an excellent meal and will visit again.

The food was all delicious and well presented, the service was efficient and friendly, the children's menu food was also good. The food was obviously prepared from fresh ingredients and there was a good variety on offer. The atmosphere was airy and calm, giving a very pleasant environment. Our only slight grumble would be over the time we waited for the food, which meant that the children got impatient, but that really is a minor "minus". Overall we enjoyed the experience very much.

Enjoyable relaxed evening. The food was well cooked with good fresh ingredients. However the highest rating goes to the staff. Very attentive without being intrusive . We also did not feel in any way pressured to leave as you can feel in some restaurants . We will recommend this restaurant to friends and family

Table wasn't ready when we arrived which wasn't a big deal but service once seated was pretty bad. Took about an hour for each course to come out. Starters were very good but main courses were all overcooked which makes me feel like it was both front of house and the kitchen which were at fault. Would have loved a dessert but it was half 7 with no sign of any staff (we arrived at 5pm) and our young son was getting tired. Ended up paying at the bar so we could leave. Disappointing as not up to usual standard here.

We were there at lunchtime and chose the lunchtime menu. Tasty, attractively presented food, reasonably priced. There was a choice of 3 or 4 meals for a set price. We were full enough so didn't want a desert. Tap water is served. Pleasant comfortable environment with attentive staff.

Our food was excellent served by very pleasant staff in lovely surroundings. We will definitely go again. My wife and our friend said their steaks were perfect for flavour and tenderness and my fish cakes and sea bream were delicious and the sticky toffee desert was yummy!

From start to finish it was an easy process. Booked online using Quandoo, friendly greeting on arrival, and throughout the service. Attentive without being too pushy. Food was excellent, could not complaint. Would liked more choice on the desert front, but what they do, they do well.

Three adults ate on a Monday evening which staff told us was Fish and Chip night, so that is what we ordered. The meal was very good, the staff were very pleasant and the atmosphere was pleasant. I would recommend the Lambley Village Kitchen to friends.

Booking facility was easy to use, we managed to reserve a table with just 4 hours notice. The Sunday lunch was plentifully and good quality, we didn't have to wait too long for our meal. Staff and surrounding were pleasant, although our table next to the door was a little uncomfortable due to a draft.

The setting is nice and and a very nice place to go for a meal, although I'm not convinced that the quality of the cooking of the food was as good as it could have been. Service was a bit too prompt and we had to slow things down. probably due to the fact we were the last ones in, but it was only 9.45pm at that point.

Nice restaurant and the staff are polite and friendly, our meal was ok, although there is a specials board the actual main menu is a bit limited on choice, and the choice seems to be similar through out the year on the main menu. Enjoyed the evening though thank you Lambley Village Kitchen

The place was pleasant enough and the staff were nice too. It's a shame it's not overly clear on the website the Xmas dinner is for parties only as we turned up hoping for a Xmas menu. We ended up with a standard Sunday roast which was nice but definitely needs more mash.

We went for a special birthday lunch, and were not disappointed. The food was really well cooked. and plenty of it, and the staff were friendly and helpful. We had a lovely table by the window overlooking the garden. This was our second visit, and we'll certainly be back for more!

We received a friendly welcome, and the table was well positioned and roomy. The food was delicious and there was no problem adjusting it to our requirements. Our only slight reservation was over the time it took for the food to arrive, the children were getting impatient and restless.

Great restaurant. We both had steak, my mums was slightly under done for her, they took it straight back and cooked her a fresh one and in addition gave her a free dessert to compensate. My food was absolutely delicious and the service was exceptional. I would definitely recommend.

One of the waiting team though it was ok to put his fingers inside clean glasses he was carrying through the restaurant to set a table. When given this feedback that it wasn't very hygienic he said "my hands are clean". Food was very good, but my comments above make me feel the place is possibly unclean if the team believe that's ok! Also team very noisy when clearing tables that had been vacated, oblivious to diners at other tables. Thanks

Was lovely delicious food. Only downside which reflected on the restaurant was staff standing around the bar talking amongst their selves. Dessert menu given was 15 mins before I was asked what I'd like only then I had to prompt them. Goats cheese tart needed something was dry consistency like a sauce ? But was ok for value

The food and drink is great, it's just a shame that the service is inattentive - when I go to a restaurant for a sit down meal I don't expect to have to walk to the bar to order drinks, or ask for cutlery that's missing from the table place settings when I booked and you're expecting me...

A nice selection of food on the menu, cooked and presented to a reasonably high standard. Service much quicker than it has been on previous visits, no pressure to vacate the table. Pleasant décor in a bistro style rather than a village pub.

Food was nice. The restaurant is lovely. We had one criticism; the two wood burning fires remained unlit on a damp and cold February day. Had they been lit this would have made a much nicer, warm welcome to our Sunday lunch.

Eaten here twice now, once at lunchtime and once in the evening. Food is very good. Staff are friendly and helpful and the general atmosphere relaxed. Seems to be a very family friendly environment. Will definitely be checking them out again.

Food average, service poor it was busy for a Thursday evening but even so, no second drinks offered, dessert menu or coffee. Had to go to the bar and pay as we did not want to sit and wait any longer for someone to come over. The Lambley has been better, I have been going for about 10 years, refurbishment great but doesn't live up to it!

Good service . Little expensive especially wine. It was very busy and felt therefore tables were little too close together. Staff were friendly and attentive. My husband had the beef and horseradish sauce but was not impressed with it.

Lovely place, lovely Sunday lunch. Only complaint was I had to ask twice for gravy oh and they put an extra glass of wine on the bill which was paid for at the bar. Quickly produced a correct bill.

We enjoyed the food, though would like there to be a few different vegetarian choices. Services was efficient and friendly. What we did not like though was the dirty seat covers on the dining chairs and hope something can be done about this before our next visit.

Had Sunday lunch with our daughter and her friend. The food was very nice, we had the Roast. Have to say though the service was indifferent. I work in the industry myself so I am possibly over critical..... It was nothing special and that's for sure.

A very warm, friendly, environment. Lots of buzz around, great food with a good choice of menu. An excellent late luncheon birthday celebration on a very, cold, wet and miserable Sunday made most enjoyable. Highly recommended.

The staff were polite and obliging however the standard of the food wasn't up to scratch, quality wise. For example, the beef was too dry and the baked potatoes were burnt & rock hard. Our servers were quick to rectify these two issues, however it has to be said that overall the meal was fairly average & a little disappointing.

We had a lovely family meal out on Bonfire Night - celebrating our daughter's 7th birthday! Notably, they accommodated her with a half-portion meal from the adult menu - great customer service. We'll be back!
