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.
