Our family took on The Lamb in 2011 when, after a number of months of closure it was looking a little sorry for itself.
It had been put up for sale by its then owners, Punch Taverns resulting in an empty building, boarded up windows, and a pretty long list of repairs, all of which served as a reminder to villagers that they faced losing their local, until the we, The Newbons fell in love with The Lamb, and decided to take a chance.
We were the first private owners for 125 years, so we set about a complete refurbishment opening our boutique Sussex hotel and gastropub to the public in April 2012. We have continued to improve and expand our wonderful building which dates back to 1780, and is Grade 2 listed. Back then, it was no bigger than a Georgian dwelling, including a bar and no more than a couple of rooms to let.
In renovations that spanned 6 years, we increased the number of bedrooms to eight, the addition of a beautiful garden terrace, and an expansion of the bar. With the invaluable help of General Manager Liam, Executive Chef Richard, and the skilled team they head up, our family are so proud to continue to improve this historic establishment.
Perfectly placed in a beautiful village, our Grade 2 listed building is the perfect place from which to explore the captivating county of Sussex. The Lamb at Angmering offers luxury boutique accommodation in West Sussex, blending both style and comfort. This, along with attentive service from our team and our wonderful restaurant, makes for an enchanting stay every time.
But we will never forget the rich history of our building. Each of our rooms are named after a previous landlord, to pay homage to the people who have ensured this pub’s place not only in Angmering’s history, but in part to it’s future, too. Each of our room pages tell you a little bit about their namesake.
