Great menus, great food, great service at a reasonable price. Restaurant is historic, so seating is not the most comfortable, but the food makes up for it.

My husband and I each had a different omelette for brunch. Both were just ok. The potatoes seemed as if they were made earlier, just thrown on the grill to reheat, and browned. The biscuit did not seem freshly baked. On the other hand, one of our friends had the fried chicken that was very good. I guess we ordered the wrong thing. Live and learn. We will go back again.

I loved the Early American atmosphere, the attentive staff, the historical significance of the Golden Lamb and the very delicious house salad. It is the best salad I ever tasted in my life plus the basil tomato soup which was very tasty. Would highly recommend this restaurant and plan to come back in the near future.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner on Easter Sunday. Not always sure what to expect on a holiday, but our dining experience at the Golden Lamb was exceptional. The lamb shank and beef tenderloin dinners were extremely tender and the potatoes and vegetable were delicious.

We attended on Easter Sunday as a group of 8. Five adults and three teens. They had the Easter Bunny making rounds, live farm animals too. We had a great time. The food was great. Service was excellent. Would do it again!

We wanted to surprise our daughters on Easter and arranged for the boyfriends to bring them to lunch. Even on a super busy Easter Sunday, the staff seated my wife and I early and watched for and signaled when our daughters arrived. The lunch only got better with 5-Star food AND service!

I took my mother and two of her friends for a weekday lunch - they are elderly with some mobility issues. The staff was accommodating, friendly and patient. Lunch was relaxed and delicious. A great place for conversation; all four of us had a terrific time and are anxious to return.

Been here many times for special occasions but now that we live within 20 minutes have started going more often. Casual place with delicious food . The menu is a little smaller but everything is good. After you eat, take a walk around the old Inn and discover some amazing history. A great gift shop too.

The portion size of the pork tenderloin is very small. It arrived on a small plate and only had sweet potatoes with it, no veggie. The prime rib was very good. Nice portion size and was served with mashed potatoes and a vegetable.

Overall food was good, service was subpar from what I would expect although server apologized profusely. Took 10 minutes for shrimp cocktail appetizer and prime rib ordered medium rare bordered on rare. Salad not served before dinner. Very expensive vs. value received.

The Golden Lamb is like an old friend that you feel totally comfortable with and are always happy to see. Wonderful historic decor and ambience in a pretty historic town. Food is always excellent. Not fancy, but very well cooked and plenty of it at a reasonable price. The fried chicken and lamb's shank are our particular favorites. Service is very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We've been there for dinner and, this time, for lunch and all visits have been consistently good. Particularly suitable for older folks, but young couples will find romantic niches and families will also enjoy the larger tables facing the street. Upstairs are named private dining rooms and bedrooms dedicated to the famous visitors who stopped there when it was a coaching inn. I'm originally from England and the Golden Lamb has all the charm of the British country pubs I now mostly just dream about, but with better food.

Chicken dinner was average in taste. Wednesday was advertised as half off chicken dinner, however did not include the salad. On the regular menu the salad was included. Is it half off the chicken dinner or is it half off the chicken dinner less the salad.?

Out of town friends were visiting, wanted a quiet, casual lunch with great food. GOT IT!!
The husband ordered burger/fries. After first taste of the fries, he announced: These are
THE best fries I have ever had!

Bread pudding is offered at any number of restaurants. However, caramelized apple bread pudding is deliciously unique at Golden Lamb.

We have always loved eating at the Golden Lamb. The food is great and the staff is friendly. It's nice taking in all the history that goes with the building. The one draw back is the prices are a little too high.
