(Image: Manchester Evening News)Brushing up against the Peak District, Greater Manchester has some stunning scenery on its doorstep.Coal burning stoves glow from stone fireplaces and candles flicker on the tabletops; it as cosy a shelter as you could hope to find from the wind whipped moors around it.What cooking? There a daily changing menu of British dishes such as rack of Derbyshire lamb and hanging venison skewers, mixed in with more far flung flavours a Moroccan lamb tagine here, a West African chicken curry there.Most of it is available on the Sunday menu too, alongside traditional roast dinners (12.95 or 16.95 with a starter).A duo of pork (17) is more pig than is probably medically advisable in one sitting; I happily lose the lump of tenderloin to give my undivided attention to the slab of pork belly and its pane of crunchy crackling, which slides away from soft, sticky meat and melting fat.Can I get a decent pint? For a freehouse, the beer selection could be better.A pretty pedestrian selection of cask ales includes a thin and slightly sour Thwaites Wainwright golden ale; we order two pints of it and then look wistfully at the wine list.Other hand pull choices include Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold and Young Special London Ale, while the keg taps are given over to Beck Vier, Peroni and Strongbow.Nobody goes to a traditional country pub expecting cutting edge craft beer, but with breweries like Thornbridge, Buxton and Red Willow on their doorstep, there the opportunity for a little more local flavour.Should I save room for dessert?Good luck with that.

The young floor team are warm, welcoming and clued up on what behind the bar and coming out of the kitchen although the labrynthine layout of the place means it sometimes hard to catch someone eye for a refill or the bill.What the damage? Two meals, two pints and one dessert come to 47.50. Mains aren cheap but the piled high portions justify the price tag.The verdict With character around every corner, The Lamb Inn is about as idyllic a country pub setting as you could imagine and exactly the kind of place you hope to find at the end of a hilly yomp.Follow CityLife We have a dedicated Facebook page for all the latest on where to drink, eat, shop, go out and events across Greater Manchester.From the best food and drink deals to exclusive looks at new restaurants and bars, gig reviews and weekend plans we got you covered.You can follow the page here for all the latest news.We also have Facebook groups specialising in eating out around Manchester and going out .You can also follow us on Twitter and Instagram , or sign up to our newsletter bringing you all the latest what on news and reviews directly to your inbox..
