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.

    Food acceptable but service poor, gravy was dripping off of our plates & had to remind waitress re the sauces she had offered to bring.

    While we were there we also witness a waiter walk away from a table mid service leaving the guest shouting hey where are you going & a waitress knock the red wine completely off the table covering the guests top & white trousers..... we were only there an hour & most tables were empty

    It was a good dining experience. The pub could do with some fans as it was a hot day and there was no air circulation. The seafood cocktail starter was very good and so were the chicken wings.The desert which was a melba mess just looked like a plate of sick.So avoid if you like your food to look nice.

    The waitress service was outstanding. Very attentive but not over bearing. Lovely polite young lady with a lovely smile and manner. Food great and value for money.

    Roast beef was tender and well flavoured. Did not appreciate the way it was served with everything piled up
    I had to spread it round the plate to be able to eat it.
    I would have preferred to have a better quality of napkin. Yours are very small and thin.
