The Black Lamb


SquareMeal Review of The Black Lamb

An appealing market town in scenic Wensleydale, Masham has the added attraction of being the home of the renowned Black Sheep Brewery: the visitor centre and bistro here are integral to the building, which is a handsome stone shrine to good food and ale. Fans are encouraged to whet their appetite with a tipple or two before settling down to a hearty lunch in the slightly 80s, Habitat-style eatery. Expect honest fare such as warm Wensleydale cheese and caramelised onion tart, fish pie, burgers and steaks, plus Scotch eggs and treacle-cured ham ciabbatas. Home-baked cakes also go down well with a cup of coffee. There’s a ‘pub’ too, with old oak floors, wood-burning stove and Black Sheep beers on tap. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, you can book a table in the mezzanine restaurant, which comes with its own far-reaching views.
