A little pub history

There is some speculation regarding the origin of the Golden Retriever, with the original building pre-dating planning legislation. It is believed that the original site was a foresters cottage, dating back before 1841. The building was later developed into dog-kennels (explaining the name 'Golden Retriever'), whilst retaining its traditional farm-house style.

Make a day of it

Located on the Nine Mile Ride, an 18th century bridleway created for Queen Anne, the Golden Retriever is a charming thatched pub surrounded by countryside near Swinley Forest. Many guests visit nearby Ascot and Windsor.
