Since 1803, the Golden Lamb has been a gathering place for the community — for neighbors, travelers, statesmen, presidents, families and friends. The Golden Lamb is proud to be Ohio’s longest continuously-operating business, and it’s an honor to be the backdrop of so many moments for our guests.


Today, the Golden Lamb restaurant is a year-round dining destination for the region and is known for using only high-quality, fresh ingredients, sourced from local farms and providers whenever possible.

The Golden Lamb culinary team expertly mixes classic dishes the Golden Lamb has been known for – including fried chicken, roasted turkey breast and lamb meatloaf – with menus that highlight each season, including a fall Bounty of the Harvest menu, Thanksgiving and Christmas menus, and menus to celebrate the fresh ingredients found in spring and summer. 

The Golden Lamb stays true to its humble Shaker roots, featuring simple tables and chairs, with Shaker artifacts decorating the restaurant throughout three dining rooms and 11 private dining rooms.

The Black Horse Tavern, adjacent to the Golden Lamb restaurant, features a pub menu, weekly food and drink specials, and live acoustic music on the weekends. Guests can enjoy a more relaxed, casual atmosphere and enjoy weekly Tavern specials, including craft beer and burger combination and other specials that focus on quality, fresh ingredients. It has become the best choice for casual, delicious dining in the region.

The Golden Lamb has never lost sight of its roots as a hotel. Today, the hotel mixes modern amenities with antiques and Shaker décor. Located on the top three floors, each one of the 18 historic overnight rooms features stunning antique furnishings and modern amenities like Tempur-Pedic mattresses, private baths and air conditioning. 

Throughout its 200+ years, the Golden Lamb has hosted, entertained and provided lodging for many notable guests, but none more honorable than 12 United States presidents including; William Henry Harrison, Martin Van Buren, John Quincy Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, Ulysses S. Grant, Ronald Reagan, Benjamin Harrison, William Howard Taft, Warren G. Harding, James A. Garfield, William McKinley and George W. Bush. From its early days as a stopping point between Cincinnati and the National Road to its historic legacy as a political stop in a battleground state, United States presidents have visited the Golden Lamb before, during, and after their time in our nation’s highest office.
