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 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...More

So, what's not to like about the Golden Lamb Buttery? Situated on the crest of a rolling hill in Brooklyn, CT...nestled in 1500 acres of shear stunning natural beauty, these folks could serve candied gnats to applause...but no gnats on THEIR menu. Instead a handsome...More
