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.

    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.

    Very disappointing I'm afraid. I booked for s birthday. The food for all of us was cold. The steak was bloody and not well done so not eaten. The fries were burnt so replaced No one enjoyed their meal and were very surprised at this-the restaurant itself looks great. No complaints about service and the waitress did get 20% taken off the bill which was appreciated but did not really compensate for a disappointing birthday evening. This was our first visit and may have been a one off but my guests said they would not come back in s hurry

    Good selection / variety of food and drinks available. Staff are friendly and attentive but don't rush you (i.e. will offer dessert but if you say you want to wait for 10 minutes or so they won't keep coming back and pestering you.

    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
