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.

    Excellent food and service. We celebrated a birthday lunch for 10 and even though they were busy we could not fault the attention and service we received

  • ((((* 24 October 2017 by Rosemary Payne from Nine Mile Ride

    . The restaurant was very busy for a Monday night but we took that as a good sign. We were looked after very well by Charlie, the smiling waiter, who we recognised from a visit two years ago - also a good sign that he was still working there!
    The pub has a nice ambience to it and everyone enjoyed the quality of the food.
    We weren't given one.

    We arrived around 10 minutes late which I'm now glad about as our table didn't end up being ready for a further 20 mins. This was a little frustrating as we had a baby in our group. That said, I can't wait to come again as the food was fantastic, my partner commented that it was the best roast dinner she had ever eaten. The kids had the children's salmon which they loved. The food was tasty, plentiful and we are only really disappointed that we haven't ever tried it in here before. See you next Sunday, already booked......hopefully the table will be ready

    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
