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.

    Very good.. I have used vintage inns before but not this particular venue. I thought the menus was a little restrictive compared to the Swallows Nest at Romsley but my meal was sufficient for me

    A fantastic evening, we asked for suggestions as all the food on the menu looked amazing. Brilliant service will be back

    Service was good and prompt. Food was delicious, Sunday roast, and ricotta tart roast. Portion size good, I would like more but I'm greedy. Eton mess tasty but very small, other desserts very good.
    Too much ice in my drink so no room for lime and soda.

    Four adults and two children. My daughter and myself had the salad and added a salmon which was very tasty. My husband had the Hunters Chicken which looked good but was cold. The waiter was brilliant,took it away and came back with a hot meal and full of apologies. Don't know he waiters name but he had a beard,........
    The children enjoyed there meal, one had sausages and the other grand daughter had pizza. We haven't been to the Golden Retriever
    For a few years and my husband and myself will definitely return.

    I have been to the Golden Retriever a few times before and always had a good time. With it being so near to Christmas as well as a Sunday it was exceptionally busy so I wasn't expecting great things but I couldn't have been more wrong.
    The food was excellent. Starters We're good & arrived in good time with all amendments taken care of. Most of us had the turkey roast for main course which was well presented, plentiful & delicious. Not many desserts were ordered but those that were were thoroughly enjoyed along with numerous coffees. The highlight of the lunch was the impeccable service we received. Everything arrived in good time with no mistakes, nothing was too much trouble & all done with good humour. I only wish I'd found out the young mans name so I could put it in this review.
    Would thoroughly recommend the Golden Retriever to anyone
