So delicious and such a lovely setting.

I've been here several times for business lunches and romantic dinners. Whatever the occasion, it never disappoints. The food is always wonderful and the surroundings so interesting. I could spend many hours just perusing what's on the walls in the converted barn. Give it a try, I guarantee you'll... read more

Many of the other reviewers have been frequenting GLB for decades. The property is magnificent, bucolic and pastoral. Be prepared to take great photos. The website is a great place to begin your visit. The hayride and the guitar accompaniment are nice touches. Much of the barn floor is uneven and requires careful navigation. But we go for the food:... More

The golden lamb is absolutely beautiful. The food is amazing and if you go home hungry it is your own fault. The portions are large and they offer many side options. The whole experience is terrific!

We enjoyed our NewYear's Eve celebration at the Golden Lamb Buttery. The evening began with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres followed by a hayride. We were led to our table and were given a selection of soups or salad and five tasty entrees to choose from (I chose the duck). In addition to the sides included with the entrees, this meal... More

We were celebrating our 46th anniversary and my wife's birthday and the Golden Lamb was our first thought. This is our go to place for special nights. The night was unseasonably cold so we passed on the hay ride. We had cocktails in the barn and were seated at our table. The menu is limited but we have never been... More

We visited the Buttery, we heard voices but did not see anyone. We walked through the entire barn , past the restaurant to the back door which overlooked a pasture of donkeys. I did not see one lamb. And that is why we went, we entered and left without one person noticing us.

Yes, we are open but not every day of the week. We serve lunch Thursday - Saturday and dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings. It sounds like you stopped by on a day that we were closed. We've had cleaning staff and painters here the past couple of days which would explain the voices you heard. We do have 3... More

We celebrated New Years Eve here. We started with appetizers in the barn which is not heated - you could see your breath it was so chilly. We had a tractor ride with Christmas carols being sung by all. It was a quick ride around the house. We enjoyed our seats upstairs in the loft for dinner. The chateaubriand was... More

We dined her for our 25th anniversary on a friend's recommendation and are glad we did. The restaurant is set on 1,000 beautiful acres (we saw sheep and mini donkeys on the property) and it really is a magnificent setting. We arrived at the restaurant (which is on the Register of Historic Places), ordered a cocktail (and our entree) and... More

My wife and I have been going to the Golden Lamb Buttery for several years now and we completely enjoy it for special occasions and celebrations. The first challenge is finding this remodeled barn in the middle of nowhere CT. Thats really not too important when most of us have a GPS to find places. The GLB is located in... More

The Golden Lamb Buttery is a gem. Set in a large, rustic barn, this restaurant is so charming. It sits on a hill with gorgeous views of rolling fields, grazing animals and a sparkling pond. It's hard to believe that though rustic,this restaurant is also elegant! If the weather is right, you can sit on the deck to take in... More
