Restaurant description

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.

    we didnt book but were found space in the pub area which was fine. The staff were attentive, the food was good and the whole experience was pleasant.

    Good. Exceptional waitress. Smiling and nothing was too much trouble. -The burger was excellent. Only complaint was that the lobster fish cake on the two course menu was rather small and too many potatoes.
