The Lamb is the only remaining public house in the village and is believed to have been licensed since the 17th century, although it is not mentioned in directories until the second quarter of the 20th century; the timber framed building dates from the 17th century. Until fairly recently there were four public houses in the parish with the Nag's Head in the High Street and the Bell and Clock Inn on the main road at Lydeway.

We lived in Eastcott in 1980,our address was Headlands, Eastcott, a small bungalow. My husband played football for the Lamb. We had some fabulous times there and stil have lovely memories. The landlord and landlady then were Ed and Doff, brilliant publicans. We also used to play indoor bowls !!! or whatever the name is. Thanks for the memories.
