Originally a charming cottage styled as a farmhouse, and valuing its rustic appearance, The Golden Retriever near Bracknell features chunky oak beams, cobbled brickwork and a pretty garden from which you can dine. The cosy hearth-fire also warms in winter, another place to enjoy the well-loved menu of classic British meals.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Golden Retriever menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Golden Retriever ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Close to Bramshill Forest, The Golden Retriever is just 6 minutes’ drive from Bracknell.

  • (((** 28 March 2017 by Lynn Knight from London

    Both myself and my lunch partner enjoyed the roast beef, the food and the service was very good, my only criticism would be too many tables packed close together, maximizing profit for the establishment, but greatly reducing the comfort and enjoyment for the guests.

  • ((((( 26 March 2017 by Steve Leatherbarrow from Reading

    Food was fantastic, service was quick, would definitely return if in the area again. We ended up having the £20 3 course set menu which was great value, some of the mains on the list were over £15 by themselves.

    The food was very good, but the service was very disappointing my friend had to chase the waiter to order the food as he had completely forgotten about us.

    The restaurant was packed but even so the service was efficient and the food excellant. All 5 of our party cleared their plates, Only drawback was it was very noisy and car park is usually full.

  • ((((* 16 February 2017 by Jude Magee from Wokingham

    Booking service was excellent, easy and effective. Nice welcome from staff, no waiting. Zoltan our waiter was a joy, he was upbeat and efficient. The food (we had roast) was good quality and well cooked. The dessert, I had previously mentioned that the Eton mess was a small serving, this time the serving was a little larger.
    Just one complaint (sorry) the fire was smoking and we smelt about like a bonfire when we got home. Other than that, great experience, thank you.

    Great food, good atmosphere.
    My wife found the room a little cold, and the (wood) fires didn't help much - we'll take a spare cardigan or something for future winter visits.
