Just a wonderful place to be, quiet, relaxing, calm. The food was excellent. Chairs were a little uncomfortable for dining which is why 4 starts not 5. Spend some time at the fence with the donkeys - they are very friendly!

Great restaurant in a pastoral setting. The view of the pasture and animals was bucolic and the light lunch we shared was excellent. It is a very special but off the beaten path place.

I had been here many years ago and remembered it as a fun experience but wanted to give it another go. We took the scenic Rt1 69 drive to get here. The building is a converted barn and very interesting inside. Lots of memorabilia. There is a main dining room, plus smaller more intimate rooms. We chose to eat outside... More

My husband and I have enjoyed lunch many times at this unique restaurant in a barn in an impossibly beautiful New England setting. But having read about it in reviews on their walls, and the description of it on their website, having dinner here became a "bucket list" item for me. And last weekend, on a summer evening that was... More

I have been going to the Golden Lamb since the lat 1990's and have enjoyed bringing people to this hidden gem just to see their faces as they are transported into a world of simplistic elegance and culinary perfection. In late June, I brough 8 friends for lunch, this is an annual event for us since 2008 to the Golden... More

Nestled in bucolic, rural Connecticut countryside stands a big rustic barn surrounded by various outbuildings and farm animals. The drive from Rt. 6 to the Golden Lamb Buttery follows stone walls and pastures of grazing cattle. Sunset is imminent on the approaching horizon. It’s time to relax and savor a unique culinary event in quiet northeast CT. Reservations are mandatory... More

After having dined at the Golen Lamb Buttery in June 2013 to celebrate a special occasion, we always said we would like to go back. We had the opportunity to do that on May 30th of this year. While it was an extremely rainy evening, the atmosphere was still very sunny and welcoming once inside the Golden Lamb Buttery. Our... More

The pristine views on this idyllic farm are only surpassed by the quality of this food. My husband and I were celebrating our birthdays which are two days apart. We both ordered the lamb which is accompanied by a numerous variety of local grown vegetables. The hayride which preceded our dinner was made more romantic by music provided by the... More

My brother in law had been several times and we wanted to do something different and special for the occassion. We arrived on a very chilly night prepared for the hay ride which started at 8 p.m.. We called to see... More

Just had dinner here last night with another couple. This was the first time that we have been to this restaurant. The reason we picked it was because of all the reviews. I have to say that I had been looking for a really nice classy restaurant to bring my wife for her birthday and I hit the nail right... More
